Club Create – Moreton Bay young artists’ programPosted 17 Jun 2020 by Katie Edmiston
Club Create, delivered by Creative Arts Alliance, builds upon the successful pilot program (The Saturday Club) developed by Moreton Bay Regional Council Galleries in partnership with QUT Widening Participation, which offered creative and career development for young visual artists.
Club Create will offer Moreton Bay young people with a passion or interest in the visual arts an opportunity to take part in an 8-week intensive from July – September 2020.
Up to 15 young artists (aged 14 -19) will take part in a series of online creative and career development workshops and mentoring sessions which will support:
- Learning of new creative skills through engaging in art making projects and activities
- Creation of new artworks which will form the basis of a group online exhibition
- Increased industry connections and knowledge through participating in a series of artist talks led by leading local practitioners and industry representatives
- Mapping of possible career and study pathways in visual arts relevant to their skills and interest areas
Over 8 weeks, selected participants will take part in:
- Artist Talks held on Wednesdays (1.5 hours)
- Creative or professional development workshops (2hrs) held weekly on Saturdays
- One on One mentorship sessions with our lead facilitator (1-2 hours per participant throughout the project)
- Final exhibition / showcase of their artwork
Applications OPEN NOW and will close on 17th July 2020.
