Arts Festivals Help

by Arts Nexus
(Cairns)

ARTS NEXUS’ FESTLINX TRAINING HITS TABLELANDS

Arts Nexus’ Festlinx Across the Regions is back with another round of FREE festival and
event workshops.

Arts Nexus, in partnership with FNQ Volunteers, Artsupport Australia and Blueprint for the
Bush will deliver the next installment of FREE Festlinx training modules to the Tablelands.

The workshop will be held over two days to cover festival and event finance: budget
management, grant application writing and alternative funding through philanthropy. These
are invaluable skills for volunteers and organisers of regional festivals and events.

Learn some key tips on how to write successful grant applications, manage a budget and identify
new revenue for your event.

Pathways to Philanthropy will be presented by the Queensland Manager of Artsupport Australia, Kathy Davis. The session will explore philanthropic support as a funding stream, how organisations can get ready for it and who some of the main philanthropic agencies are.

The Festlinx Across the Regions sessions will be presented by FNQ Volunteers and will provide training on grant writing, budgets and project management. Note that these workshops are held over two days.

Festlinx Across The Regions was established to build capacity and develop skills in regional
and community-based festivals and events.

“The Festlinx model recognises that festivals and events keep regional communities creative,
alive and sustainable. These workshops have been designed specifically to strengthen and
tailor the relevant skills,” Arts Nexus Executive Officer Susan Reid said. “Budget management, grant writing and accessing broader revenue streams are powerful core skills to ensure the success of a festival or event.”

The workshop is open to all those involved in the region’s festival and events sector - new
and established organisers, managers, workers, volunteers, community organisations and
those who just want to get their idea off the ground.

It will also provide the community with excellent networking opportunities, and the chance to
engage with some key service providers - Arts Nexus, Artsupport Australia and FNQ
Volunteers.

transform a clay model or found object into wax and hence cast glass. Basic cold-working methods are demonstrated and available to the students for further exploration. There are no prerequisites, though a background in ceramics or 3-D modeling is helpful.

would love to join you
by: Ted E

I would love to join you, but Chicago is a long way to "commute".

But I think it is a good endeavor, and many will appreciate it.

I had been a vocal soloist at Chicago's "Orchestra Hall" for 15 years and loved every minute of it. Spring concerts were hard work, but the applause at the end of a performance said it all.

It was the icing on the cake, if you know how that feels.

Douglas Arts - Sculpture Course - August 2011

Douglas Arts Base, Mossman is offering a ten week course in Sculpture, starting on Monday 1st August with Peter Culley.

Course Tutor: Peter Culley

“When I trained as an art teacher, my first love was not painting but sculpture. I enjoyed creating and shaping forms using my hands and tools, and under the expert guidance of my tutors, amongst whom were great sculptors such as Anita Aarons and Lenton Parr, I formed
a lasting love of 3 dimensional forms.

I have found it very rewarding to teach people sculpture. Whether it be in the carving of shapes or in the construction of an art work from disparate materials, witnessing the pleasure gained is very inspiring.

So, if you would like to try, come along and join the fun.”

Course Aims

To encourage an interest in 3-dimensional artwork, to introduce basic sculpture concepts and to design and produce a sculptural artwork.

Course Outline

During the first six weeks of this course, students will be introduced to different sculptural mediums and concepts through exercises, visual media and design techniques. In the last four sessions students will focus on their own sculpture project suitable for the home or garden. Students with prior experience may choose to work on their own concept.

The sculpture can be realistic or abstracted. It can focus on either aesthetic forms such as insects, human figures and invented free-forms; or functional forms such as paving stones, bird-baths, lanterns, garden pots, tables. There is no need to come into this course with a pre-conceived idea for an artwork.

The material selected will depend on the student, as students are required to source their own materials. Subject to availability and cost, materials could include concrete, hebel stone, fired clay, scrap metals, plastic, wire/wire mesh, mosaic tiles, glass, wood and various types of soft stone.

The size and scale of the sculpture will be influenced by such variables as strength, cost,casting,kiln-firing, time required to complete the artwork, and student capabilities.

Course Details

Course fee is $200.
Fees due in full on enrollment, or two installments may be negotiated.

Course runs over 10 weeks, on Monday morning from 9.30 – 12.30pm.

Course starts on Monday 1st August.

Places are limited to 8 students.

Beginners and advanced students are welcome.

Enrollment

To register for the course please email secretaryATdabmossman.com or phone 07 4098 3337 and request an enrollment form.
