ACT Community Arts Office, Music For Everyone and the Canberra Musicians Club invite you to attend the launch of GENERATE canberra arts access network at the Ainslie Arts Centre this Friday evening.
GENERATE is an inclusive initiative arising from the demand for one central arts and disability hub for artists to access information and have conversations about what’s happening locally in the arts. Key to the network will be a new website being launched on 27 November, giving artists the opportunity to join as members, upload artist statements and images, create their own blog sites, access resources like templates for project planning and receive regular newsletters.
Coordinator of GENERATE, artsAbility Officer Caro Roach from the ACT Community Arts Office says “There are so many great creative programs for people with disabilities already happening across Canberra through both arts organizations and health and community services. But people don’t know they have so many choices, or can’t always identify who is doing what, when”.
The GENERATE network will have it’s virtual home on the internet, creating a comfortable place for artist’s to feel they belong, but we will also be meeting informally each month to look at current exhibitions around the Canberra area or visiting interested organisations. As well as artists, organisations from the arts, health and community sectors are invited to join the network.
GENERATE also celebrates the inaugural Social Inclusion Week Australia (23 – 29 November 2009), spearheaded by inspirational community leader Jonathon Welch, well known for his leadership with the Choir of Hard Knocks.
