Since the last blog, have been having some very deep thinks about what this project is all about.
After failing dismally at the last attempt at funding I came to realise this event needs to be about the community.
Fortunately, I have had the opportunity to talk with a number of people involved in different areas of society and have been inspired by their commitment to their cause or interests. It also highlighted how fractured our community is when it comes to the Arts in all its many and varied forms.
As a consequence, I decided to reinvent this project with the purpose of highlighting the hidden gems of our society.
The Gold Coast is known for its Sea, Surf and Sun, for its entertainment, casinos and clubs. The hidden gem is the talent rattling away underneath the glitz and glamour, talent which needs to be bought to life, exposed to the sunshine, become part of the little known cultural aspect of the southern most tip of Queensland Australia. There is enough talent on this stretch of coastline to become a cultural mecca.
And so, with this in mind, I have been busy at work, completed is the Mission Statement, Vision Statement and Goals.
Have ordered the business cards which should be in our letter box today… have compiled a list of contacts to call, written up a script and now in the process of putting together a brochure for emailing to interested parties.
Don’t want to bore you with the mundane, but needless to say have also set a website for this project courtesy of wordpress come have a look.. artsdayinfo.wordpress.com
Also come visit me on facebook would be very interested to find out how many people on the Gold Coast and surrounding areas would be interested in an event of this kind.
