Artists and creatives from Central Victoria recently gathered in Castlemaine for the first ArtsACTION workshop: Being Market Ready.

The day provided a road map for participants to clarify their thoughts and ideas for finding solutions relevant to themselves and designing their career pathways.

They were taken on a journey aimed at exploring the key components listed below, in preparing a plan to reach new and expanded markets:

  • Clarifying your goals
  • Telling your story
  • Demonstrating your skills
  • Finding your markets
  • Confirming your tools
  • Creating a plan
  • Getting into action

The feedback was extremely positive, with many saying they enjoyed the networking and the time to think and focus on their own goals and aspirations:

“It made me think about the future positively”

“The day provided vital steps to assist in the development of my arts practice”

“I now feel fired and up and motivated”

“I enjoyed hearing from and spending time with other creatives”

“Thank you for delivering an informative and useful session! It was more valuable than a week marketing course through the NEIS program”

Participants were left enthusiastic and keen to get on with implementation. Some of the next steps they said they would take included updating a website, creating a business plan, meeting with others to continue momentum, finalising branding, and creating a presentation to pitch to potential buyers.

Bryley Savage, a communications, marketing and public relations specialist, presented at the end of the session, offering a support opportunity to participants. She is one of three mentors servicing the Bendigo region as part of the Australian Small Business Advisory Service (ASBAS) digital mentoring program. This opportunity is access to 2 hours of one-on-one mentoring for a highly subsidised fee of $25 in total.

The next ArtsACTION workshop is being held in Bendigo on the theme ‘Working Together Effectively’. This workshop provide ideas to broaden networks, address methods to work together more effectively, and ways to become involved in new collective opportunities.

Make sure you book now, as places for this are extremely limited.

These workshops are part of Arts ACTION, activating pathways for creatives. For more information and to get involved in other opportunities on offer visit: www.popupart.com.au/artsaction

Regional artists and creatives offer new economic solutions. They must not get left behind in the vigorous growth of the Victorian creative industries.

Developing creative communities that are resilient and sustainable is needed now more than ever.

Launching this week is ArtsACTION, a free upskilling and professional development program for Central Victorian artists and creatives, thanks to $20,000 funding from the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund.

The program will provide online and face-to-face training as well as practical opportunities to activate career pathways, broaden networks and build market reach.

According to the Victorian Government, “the value of Victoria’s creative industries has increased by 23 per cent in the past four years with the sector now injecting $31 billion into the state’s economy. Jobs in the creative industries have grown by 15 per cent, to 260,000, in the same time”.

In response, Pop Up Art, a division of Jumpleads NFP, has been advocating for Central Victorian Artists for eight years. “We’re committed to strengthening the creative sector, because this enriches communities as a whole: making them more vibrant, connected and ultimately healthier” says Sharon Seyd who’s coordinating this initiative.

“We’re aiming to encourage artists and creatives to effectively tap into industry growth, as well as to inspire leadership and build resilience for regional creative communities” says Dr Karen Le Rossignol, Deakin University, who is contributing her expertise in digital innovation to the ArtsACTION program.

Supported by four Central Victorian Councils, this program will be delivered between September 2019 and April 2020, within the Shires of Bendigo, Mount Alexander, Macedon and Hepburn. All artists, creatives and arts workers within these Shires are invited to participate.

Bendigo resident, artist and academic Dr Susan McMinn is pleased to see this initiative take place. “As an independent gallery owner hosting regular exhibitions from artists across the region, I see the enormous talent that exists here. I also see how a program like ArtsACTION can support a growing need for artists to develop skills, methods and frameworks to maximise their potential.

ArtsACTION includes three opportunities to get involved:

  1. A FREE 6-part email course providing inspiration and practical information to get artists and creatives thinking and taking action around further developing their creative career.
  2. Three FREE half-day facilitated workshops for artists, creatives and arts workers to connect and strengthen their networks; encouraging them to be market ready; providing opportunities to broaden their reach; and gain new skills working collectively to expand their impact.
  3. FREE representation within Regional Arts Park: An innovative, interactive, digital platform for artists to display their work and receive online promotion.

More information and to register for these opportunities : www.popupart.com.au/artsaction

For interviews and questions: Karen Corr | 0419 006 243 | karenc@makeachange.org.au

With thanks to Susan McMinn and Arnold Street Gallery for hosting this announcement. Special acknowledgement to the Womnjeka exhibition on show at the time of the announcement including to artists Ian Clark, Suze Radford, Paul Chapman, Georgina Risely, Peta Hudson, Tashara Roberts, Trina Dalton-Ooges, Anne Conway, Bek Saltmarsh  and curator Janet Bromley.

The Regional Arts Park (RAP) is FREE representation for established artists, within an innovative, interactive, digital platform to display their work and promote them as an artist – online. Designed by Deakin University in partnership with Pop Up Art.

It aims to:

  • promote creatives and artists, with integrated exhibition and sale of art work
  • facilitate relevant storytelling about their communities
  • strengthen engagement, exposure and market reach of the creative industry sectors.

As an imaginative and immersive digital world RAP creatively reflects the physical, economic, emotional and social environment of the community. Local community challenges are highlighted through the lens of creative response.

It’s a place where online discussion can be incorporated for creative problem-solving of strategic issues, local/regional sustainability, community resilience and adaptability; as well as the shared challenges of working creatively within Regional Victoria.

Approach

The focus will be on telling stories visually and creatively. All participants are encouraged to think strategically about the future of the region.

Reach

As a digital community, RAP enables wider access and greater local/trans local/global reach for creatives, artists and their work. It is linked to community priorities to engage a broader audience in garnering greater support for the community’s concerns.

Functional Description

Entry to the RAP website is a simple online navigation open broadly to arts audiences and the general public. It is composed of three interactive zones which immerse participants in the regional arts environment:

Zone:

 Description:

RAP Arts Café (reception) 

Main entry to the park itself – all visitors enter here

RAP Gallery + exhibitions

Individual artists’ gallery [selected artists]

Concurrent exhibitions on specific themes (may also be developed)

Environmental sensorium

There will be an ongoing exhibition within innovative chambers, displaying various themes with responses by artists and other creatives of various disciplines [ in group shows ]

 Initial 2020 exhibition focus: Four Elements – earth, air, fire, water

Soundtrack, animation for sensory experience to engage creative discussion

Future developments of RAP will be shaped by the ArtsACTION participants and other interested creatives and artists. This might include artist digital residencies and a town-hall-events style digital pavilion.

Theoretical Rationale

The RAP reconfigures and extends David Throsby’s values from Economics and Culture 2001:

Aesthetic value

Properties of beauty, harmony, form as component of cultural value within the digital storyworld, and the community

Spiritual value

Inner qualities shared by human beings as cultural environment

Social value

Connection with others, nature of society, sense of identity and place as local/translocal communication/networks

Historical value

Sense of continuity from past which illuminates the present as part of the discussion/issues contextualised for range of stakeholders

Symbolic value

Cultural objects provide nature of meaning and its value to consumers of creative work, and to the wider community needing to discuss meanings

Authenticity value

Real, original and unique artwork both installed and on sale as responses to issues of sustainability, resilience and wellbeing within the region [Environmental sensorium]

Get involved

The Regional Arts Park is currently in development. Further details will be provided at a later date. To stay in the loop, please formally express your interest below, by completing this quick application.

Many thanks to all involved with small works from a BIG PLACE

This project enabled us to build a mobile art exhibit and display the artwork of 130 Central Victorian artists in six locations, providing professional development and marketing exposure to the artists involved.

In addition we formalised a relationship with the 130-190 participating artists, and recorded EOI’s from 340. This paves the way to formalising a collective that supports these artists in their representation; productivity; professionalism and most importantly in their capacity to generate income growth via the selling of their work to broader audiences.

Building on our collective success we’re happy to announce:

This year Deakin University, in partnership with Pop Up Art, is building us an innovative online Virtual Art Gallery, supporting artists of Mount Alexander, Hepburn, Macedon and Bendigo.
