ARTISTS and arts workers in the Tropical North looking to expand their networks, rethink issues and practices, and support one another through knowledge sharing and goal setting are being encouraged to get involved in peer coaching groups.
The Regional Arts Services Network (RASN) Tropical North team recently completed the Creating Out Loud Program at the University of Queensland to enable them to facilitate sessions across the region to empower the region’s vibrant creative community.
RASN is a partnership between Regional Development Australia (RDA) Tropical North and Cook Shire Council.
RDA Tropical North chief executive Sonja Johnson said sessions would be rolled out across the region once expressions of interest to join the Creating Out Loud Program were received.
“The seven-session program will provide a valuable opportunity for creative practitioners to connect, collaborate and thrive together,” she said.
“It will also provide an ongoing legacy as it teaches participants the skills to further support the region’s creative community by running these sessions within their own networks.
“This initiative aligns with RASN’s mission to foster collaboration, creativity and sustainability within the local creative community.
“The team looks forward to sharing their insights and facilitating meaningful sessions that will contribute to the growth of the Tropical North’s arts and culture sector.”
