Arts OutWest News UPDATES
From the Executive Officer
With 2012 rapidly heading towards a close, November will be busy for Arts OutWest. In looking at the activities we have planned over the month, it is satisfying to reflect on the way that all four of our priority areas are covered, arts and health, Aboriginal arts development, creative industries and young people.
Arts and health activities are flourishing in the region. The Orange program will be busy for the remainder of the year with an artist in residence program installing Tim Winters at Bloomfield and ten artists working to produce work for the hospital. The Bathurst program has been busy with medical researcher John Rae’s work being exhibited. We have a disability forum for the sector happening in Bathurst. Out regional disability project Sweet Dreams is getting started, although we are still keen to find more participants with a disability to be involved in dance and movement, composition, visual arts and multi-media activities. We have also commenced our regional Aboriginal arts and health project Spread the Word with our new Aboriginal Health Promotions Officer, Anna Evans, employed through this project’s funding.
The big event for November in our Aboriginal arts development program is Marramarra Bulla, to be held in Parkes on 17 November. I do urge everyone – Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal – to come out to Parkes for a Saturday of performances, workshops and visual arts. The day showcases the work of our region and all activities are free.
Our major creative industries event for November is the Marketing Bootcamp, presented by Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS). Arts OutWest has chosen to subsidise this workshop - as we did for the Creative Business workshop presented earlier this year - because I know how important it is for practitioners in our region to develop these skills and to be able to access the opportunity at an affordable price. I’m delighted at the response and the workshop is now booked out.
Our young people’s program continues and the website developed for our regional young people, YAOW! has been getting a good response. I encourage our young people to use the website as a way of sharing their work. We have been fortunate in attracting a number of grants for digital work with young people and we are now delivering the last of these before our Young People’s coordinator Zoe takes some time off on maternity leave.
Finally, the recent council elections have brought several changes to the Arts OutWest Committee of Management. We farewell our Secretary, Monica Morse who is now Mayor of Bathurst, our Blayney representative Roxanne Reeks and our Weddin member Chris Lobb and thank them very much for their input during their time on our Board. We welcome our new Bathurst member Jess Jennings and our new Weddin member Carly Brown. We are also losing our Treasurer Toni Dwyer who was elected from the general membership and we are keen to hear of anyone with accountancy skills who would be interested in taking on the role of Treasurer on the Board.
