#ArtsBundyAtHome aims to connect the Bundaberg Region’s arts community, encourage opportunities for artist employment and to provide platforms for professional development relevant to artistic practise. Bundaberg Regional Council is taking the opportunity to reconnect with the arts sector through the current COVID-19 restrictions and we want to hear from you about how we can support the arts community’s recovery.
Register your event with Arts Bundaberg via our events website, What's On Bundaberg, and simply tag it with #ArtsBundyAtHome in the description. Your event will be featured alongside all things ArtsBundy online and all in one place.
Please ensure you choose ‘Online – Supported by Arts Bundaberg’ in the 'Events Address' drop down menu options so that it can be displayed correctly.
Are you planning on promoting an online event or workshop during COVID-19 restrictions?
Ideas and Conversations
Join in our ‘Ideas and Conversations’ create online forums, hear guest speakers talk about issues relevant to industry recovery and have your say along the way. These are free with a particular emphasis on engaging with the arts community of the Bundaberg Region, but anyone can join.
- The Art of Positivity – a discussion about changing the narrative from a “woe is me” outlook to a proactive approach looking at the vital role the arts has in connecting and uniting a community.
- Industry Crisis to Recovery – bringing together a number of expert speakers such as industry crisis management professionals, psychologists and those involved with previous disaster recovery work to look at the tangible and intangible impacts of crisis, but also to talk about positive ways out.;
- Business Thinking – the Bundaberg Region has quite a number of artists, but few who have high level business skills or producing/curatorial skills. This session would bring together two locals who do have those skills to talk about business planning and creative thinking about opportunities.
- Community Responses – this session would give an opportunity for key people in the community, an invited panel of stakeholders representing different sectors of the community, to respond in their own ways to the three previous sessions.
