Workshop to develop projects for artists of all abilities

REPRESENTATIVES of arts organisations and disability service providers are invited to a special free workshop next Thursday in Coffs Harbour.

Regional Arts NSW is delivering workshops across regional NSW during November to assist organisations to develop successful projects for artists of all abilities.

The Access All Areas workshop is being presented by Arts Mid North Coast and will be facilitated by Anne Dunn, a highly experienced mediator, facilitator and organisational developer in the corporate, government and community sectors.

The workshops are limited in size to encourage interaction by those attending from the arts and disability services sectors.

Arts Mid North Coast Executive Officer Rod Howard said the workshops were a fantastic opportunity to discover opportunities for partnership development and learn how to increase the chances of receiving funding for specific projects.

"Participants will receive information about funding and grant writing, discover great arts and disability projects that have taken place in regional NSW and have time to discuss the development of future projects," Howard said.

Participation is free but all attending must register with Arts Mid North Coast by calling (02) 6658 9400 by 5.00 pm, Tuesday, November 13.

Access All Areas is a capacity building project produced by Regional Arts NSW and forms part of the NSW Arts and Disability Partnership 2012.

Access All Areas is supported by the NSW Government through Arts NSW and Ageing, Disability and Home Care.
