Townsville’s artists and creatives are being encouraged to get together at an informal networking event that seeks to foster creative collaboration and hear new suggestions for revitalising the CBD.
The Create Townsville group, in collaboration with Regional Arts Services Network, will hold its second “Friday Sesh” at the Herbert Hotel on Friday 26th April from 5.30pm
Create Townsville Director Dr Jocelyn McKinnon said the Friday Sesh would provide a casual get together , while continuing informal discussions about how the group could contribute to ideas for the CBD revitalisation.
“Over the past few weeks we’ve seen more media coverage around what can be done to reinvigorate the CBD, which we think is a good thing,” said Dr McKinnon.
“The Friday Sesh will provide all the attendees the opportunity to share their thoughts and input on what they think may work, and how those ideas can be brought to fruition.”
“I encourage everyone in the creative industry, from writers to designers, videographers, actors, musicians – and many more, to come along.”
North Queensland’s Regional Arts Officer Madonna Davies said that “Townsville has a very diverse range of creative and performing arts practitioners and industry professionals. We don’t have many opportunities, if any, to meet one another in a laid back social environment.
“These networking sessions are a great way for us all to connect and form new creative relationships. Many a creative, collaborative idea has been formulated at a bar over a glass of wine”.
The Friday Sesh is open to all artists and creatives and will be held at Herbert Manor on 26 April 2019 from 5.30pm. For more information, visit Create Townsville or North Queensland RASN on Facebook.
