MARKETING MADE EASY FOR ARTISTS

Are you a frustrated, time poor artist trying to navigate the internet to find the right sort of marketing and promotional information you need to become a successful artist?

Then come along to this interactive, relaxed and informal talk and presentation session. You can email your questions beforehand and the answers will be ready when you arrive, with other useful tips to follow afterwards.

The workshop will present information in a no nonsense and inspiring way, sharing ideas, tips and practical solutions for artists looking for easy ways to promote themselves without sacrificing too much of that valuable creative time!

Tony Barber is a highly experienced and creative artist, a published author, designer, inventor and now mentor, who realised at a young age that being able to paint, draw and design was only a few of the skills needed to become a professional artist. Over the last 50 years Tony has lived an amazing creative life, constantly selling and licensing his art and creations in Australia, America and England. Now with the impending loss of the full use of his hands, Tony believes its time to share what he has learnt.

Where: The Gold Leaf Factory, 3/26 Moresby Avenue, Seaford, Vic 3198

When: Friday 4 November from  10.30 am to 12.30 pm

What:  Launch of the reprint of MISS GYMKHANA, R.G. MENZIES AND ME by Kathy Skelton.

Through her wryly humorous observations we see how events in Victoria in the 1950s impacted on Sorrento life and how Australia was changing.

Sadly, author Kathy Skelton passed away in 2002 but her voice lives on in this book.  Sorrento Museum has reprinted this special book to be launched by award-winning playwright and author Hannie Rayson .

When:  Sunday November 13, 2.00-3.00pm

NEW MURAL IN TANTI

Teal & White logojustice-vic-logo

 

 

 

From a badly tagged wall

img_2537

To a mural that the whole community can enjoy. Inspired by local’s stories and the heritage of Tanti artist Brett Ashby designed an artwork to strengthen sense of pride and ownership in a community.  Working with students from Mornington Secondary College and Mornington Park Primary an exciting new mural has been created for the peninsula.

finished-mural-tanti-a

The project was funded by the Victorian Department of Justice in partnership with Mornington Peninsula Shire as part of school-based education sessions on the consequences of tagging in our communities.

img_5398_1-a

The mural has given Tanti a stronger sense of community identity and sense of safety for residents.  An anti-graffiti protection coat  has been applied to the mural and the Adopt-a-Hotspot ‘badge’ listing sponsors and partners on the project with a phone number for the community to report any tagging will be added over the coming weeks.

The Shire’s Adopt-a-Hotspot program of murals across the peninsula has contributed much towards maintaining amenity for our communities.

NEW ARTS PROGRAM A BIG WIN FOR REGIONAL COMMUNITIES

media-release-logo

Media Release 6th Oct 2016

Regional Victorian communities will attract the best performances and live events to their towns thanks to a new Andrews Labor Government program to strengthen regional touring in more places across the state.

The Small Regional Presenters program will be available to support regional arts presenters – including not for profit arts groups and societies, venues and local councils – to present professional arts events and experiences in their communities.

Grants of up to $15,000 will be available to support the presentation of a single show or live event, a series of shows or an annual program.

Small Regional Presenters builds on existing programs that support Victorian arts companies and producers to embark on regional tours.

It provides a focus on the other end of the touring cycle by supporting regionally-based arts groups and venues to attract shows to their area.

Small Regional Presenters part of the Labor Government’s $20 million Regional Arts Package, delivered in the 2015/16 Victorian Budget.

Funding will be offered through three grant rounds in 2016-17. Applications to the first round of the Small Regional Presenters program close 5pm, Wednesday 16 November 2016, for shows taking place from 31 January 2017 onwards.

Community presenters seeking to apply must be members of Regional Arts Victoria.

For program details, visit www.creative.vic.gov.au

Quotes attributable to Minister for Creative Industries Martin Foley

“Arts touring brings significant benefits to towns, to communities and to artists and Victoria has a strong history of regional tours by major companies as well as independent artists.”

“Small Regional Presenters supports the presenters working on the ground in each region. These presenters know each community’s needs and character and can program shows that resonate locally.”
