Regional Arts Australia is proud to launch the Regional Arts Network, offering professional development and connectivity through networking and support to regional, remote and rural artists and arts professionals.
The network will launch in mid-2018 with a series of free webinars.
This series has been developed to be thought-provoking and practical, and we encourage everyone to contribute to the discussions at the webinar. The webinar series will focus on building stronger networks and engagement; addressing bullying and harassment in the workplace; increasing social media skills; and provide an introduction to the new Regional Engagement Guidelines, to be launched later this year.
Webinar 1 – Wednesday 4 July at 11am AEST | Networking and Engagement featuring Wesley Enoch, Sydney Festival Director and Simon Spain, Regional Arts Australia Chair, and practical information about funding applications from Mary Jane Warfield, Regional Arts Fund Manager with Regional Arts Australia.
Webinar 2 – Wednesday 8 August at 11am AEST | Addressing Bullying and Harrassment in the Workplace with Kim Tran, Director, Policy and Governance at Live Performance Australia
Webinar 3 – Wednesday 12 September at 11am AEST | Social Media Basics with Erika McInerney, Director, Mac & Ernie Social Media Training and artist Helen McCullagh.
Webinar 4 – Wednesday 7 November at 11am AEST | Introducing the Regional Engagement Guidelines with Rod Ainsworth and Natalie Fisher, Regional Engagement Guidelines Development Team.
In addition to the webinar series, we will be offering ongoing opportunities to connect with other artists and arts professionals around Australia through a diverse range of Regional Arts Network events, initiatives and programs.
We look forward to sharing ideas and opportunities with you.
