Local art HAPPENING ONLINE
Creative people with creative solutions: exciting new, locally made online learning. Galleries online. Virtual gigs. Creative things to make you smile.
For those with lessons to teach, skills to share the internet has been a lifeline. Creatives from our region (and worldwide) are reaching out to existing and new students, customers and collaborators to connect – and keep the business ticking in these strange, challenging new times.
What’s happening locally online
Lots of local creatives have already flipped what they do to online offerings.
- Both Mitchell Conservatorium and Orange Regional Conservatorium are now running their one-on-one classes via platforms like Zoom and are getting great feedback. They’ll both be open to new students joining them online for term two. Mitchell Con is planning on running ensemble rehearsals and even their PUBChoir events online. Here’s a video update from Mitchell Con’s Director Graham Sattler. Follow them on Facebook for updates and on You-Tube to see films of all previous PUBChoir events (nice and uplifting).
- Other music teachers in the region are also working online with students. Here’s a lovely article from ABC Central West about some of our local musos leaching online.
- There’s lots of visual art class providers in the region and many are adapting to online learning. Here’s a video from our adorable former colleague Wendy Hawkes adapting to teaching visual arts online.
- The IronFest Gothic Festival was due to be held in Lithgow – it’s moved online on April 17-19 – dress up and participate.
- Local galleries are taking their upcoming exhibitions online: The Corner Store Gallery in Orange, Peisley Street Gallery in Orange, Gang Gang Gallery in Lithgow will present their major event ‘Hands on Clay’ as a virtual exhibition, so will T.Arts Gallery in Bathurst and others.
