Winter Arts Networking Nights

Filed : Networking + Training, Projects .

Our popular Winter Arts Networking Nights continue. Share your latest arts adventures and chat all things arts at our last gathering in Oberon (Sep 18 at 3pm) – and yes, we know it’s not at night, or even in winter!

We started the season this year in Lithgow (Wednesday June 29 at Eskbank House and Museum) with a huge – and lively – turn out. Then we had a great little crew at the Blayney event on July 12 – here’s what author Kim Kelly said about the night. The Bathurst night saw us all wanting to apply for a Hill End residency through Bathurst Regional Art Gallery, no matter what our arts practice!

At Cowra, we had musician Melissa Robertson talking about her new album, Danielle Allen talking about a new program, Respect-Ed, in Cowra schools and artist Melissa Barber telling us all about her latest projects.

In Orange, we had a great presentations from Holly Manning PR, new kid on the block Ludlow Creative Space showing off their projects and the Orange Male Voice Choir, who are celebrating their 90th anniversary.

In Canowindra, we received an update from Phoebe Cowdry about the very interesting Silos Project, Arthur Falconer chatted about the new CanArts project, Nerida Cuddy showed us her latest projects and we heard all about the latest announcements from the Baroque Festival.

A small but interesting crowd gathered at Grenfell, and we heard about projects from Henry Lawson High, their P&C and Jennifer Graham. Parkes saw some great talk about Elvis, local art projects from Maralyn Nash and Elly Tom talking about the Parkes Shire Concert Band.

Keep an eye on Facebook for announcements of this and all other events.

If you’d like to do a show and tell presentation (essentially slides shown while you talk) let us know ASAP. We’ll also be adding some fun new activities to the format – bingo anyone?

Oberon: Sunday 18 September, 3pm at Mayfield Garden

    Hi

    I’m interested I attending the Eskbank House meeting next Wednesday. Does it start at 5pm? Is this a one off at this venue? What kind of topics are likely to be presented?m

    Cheers Prue Mogg

      Hi Prue, you are most welcome to attend! Yes, it does start at 5pm. This is the only Winter Arts Networking Night we’re doing in Lithgow, though we are running them in lots of other centres in the Central West over the next couple of months. Keep your eye out for those, as well as other networking opportunities we present at various times. Topics at these evenings are basically anything to do with the arts – a particular project or organisation, or an update on an on-going venue or project. I’ll add you to the RSVP list.
