art4place meetings are held on the first Monday of the month at the Hinterland Business Centre 38a Coral Street Maleny at 4.30 pm.

All art4place members are welcome to attend.

At the last meeting, the Management Committee decided to post a short summary of the main points of each meeting on the blog site. This is the first of our monthly summary updates.art4place Meeting 12 March 2012
  • art4place participation in the Bunya Dreaming Festival was well received, with seven of our members creating, organising and helping on the day. Artists were paid a small honorarium for their contribution on the day. The art4place Committee aims to apply for grant funding next year to enable us to stage a bigger and better event and pay our artists and helpers a small fee.
  • Sunshine Coast Council has a new interactive website for arts and creative organisations called the ‘COMMUNITY HUB’. art4place aims to become a regular contributor to this site.
  • Artslink Qld [Qld Arts Council] has funding to support 5 regions in 2013, to revitalize regional communities through the arts – the program is called Animating Places. Art4Place will submit a proposal to see if we can secure one of the 5 partnerships and use this opportunity to promote placemaking art and artists in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.
  • SUNSHINE COAST HINTERLAND CREATIVE SPACES – art4place is collaborating with Arts Connect’s ‘Open Studios, September 15th – October 7th, 2012, by proposing 6 activities/workshops/displays that complement the ‘Open Studios’ programme. We have applied to the Sunshine Coast Council for a Major Grant –‘Cultural development’ but won’t know the outcome until the end of June 2012
