Arts Council seeks ideas for future art-related events

September 30th, 2011

With the Winter Workshops and the Welcome to the Godwits events completed for 2011, it's time for the Motueka Arts Council to plan for the next couple of years, and the council is asking the community what events could be held in the future.

An ideas session will be held at Community House on 12th October at 7.30pm. Any interested people with good ideas and/or a willingness to help out can are invited to come along to discuss what the Arts Council could do to involve various age groups and what type of events would make interesting, stimulating, challenging, diverse and fun happenings in Motueka.

Brent Maru will facilitate the evening to collect the ideas from community input. Small to larger happenings could be a great contribution. Any ideas should be art related. These will later be processed, and then a feasibility and priority list will be formulated.

The Council's initial planning for events and activities will include time frames, funding and how much community involvement is needed, but ideas are needed first.

"Motueka has always had great community ideas in the past," said Shirley Frater, chairperson of the Arts Council. "The 1990s ideas that included the street banners, street furniture and the Winter Workshops are still continuing. We want to hear from the community on how they see community art happenings in Motueka."

There is also an event on the 11-11-11 at the Lower Moutere hall that invites all artists to show their Art at a party starting at 3 pm. It's koha for a stall or spot in the hall. Send me a mail if your interested.
