Woopsy, From Denmark with Love – 22nd and 24th November

Woopsy, From Denmark with Love – 22nd and 24th November

Woopsy is the story of a boy who is forced on a journey, all alone, coming to a new country where everything looks like something he knows, but where everything at the same time looks like something else, and where his life must be learned anew. A one-person performance, Woopsy is a monologue about some of the problems we suddenly face when life changes. Even though life can be difficult, it can end well when you have had a mother who is a belly dancer and a father who can swing dishes ..

Regional Arts Plan Interactive Forum – Black Box Theatre, 2.30pm to 5.00pm, Tuesday 3rd October

This is an exciting time for arts on the Sunshine Coast. Sunshine Coast Council, in partnership with CQ University, is rolling out an engagement program to understand the needs of the regions arts sector. This conversation will inform the development of the region’s first Arts Plan. The Sunshine Coast council is creating something unique and rather special - A 20 year Arts Plan for Our region. This really is something that does not happen everywhere. For something like this to be a success it requires input from as many local people as possible!  If we work together what can we create that includes people from every area and strengthens the Arts where we live? Council have engaged a board of specialist practitioners to help them shape policies and visions. The Cultural Development team has also pulled together a small group of artists who have strong networks to consult with their peers. We are very pleased to let you know we are part of the ‘Arts Ambassadors’ team! We invite YOU to an interactive forum at Black Box Nambour, on Tuesday 3rd October from 2.30pm to 5pm, which is open to all artists. You can register on: https://www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/Experience-Sunshine-Coast/Arts-and-Culture/Arts-Plan to take part in the engagement program and be kept up to date with future opportunities in the arts on the Sunshine Coast.   Contact: Florence Teillet  0403 288 287 (with Glen Shepard & Delany Delaney)...
