A few Arts Counselling subscribers I’ve bumped into in the real world have asked about how to subscribe to my new blog, Thinking Practice. Best place to watch the show is Swaraj Ground at Thrissur on the fourth day of Onam, where Pulikali troupes from all over the district assemble to display their skills. The kids loved the audience participation and surprises of the unexpected twists and turns of the story.
Art is something that stimulates an individual’s thoughts, emotions, beliefs, or ideas through the senses. We champion and invest in artistic excellence through our grants, services, prizes and payments to Canadian artists and arts organizations. The Arts Card creates possibilities for you to connect with your friends and family.
With a single gift to Work for Art, you can support nearly 100 vital arts and culture groups in Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington County. Create prop boxes focused on a specific theme such as post office, firehouse, health clinic, or pet store. We invest in artistic excellence through support for all facets of the creative process, and are committed to the arts being accessible to all Australians.
Teaching teams can use visual and performing arts techniques to support learning, as well as creative expression. The prestigious Australia Council Awards recognise the life-long and continued contributions by artists in music, literature, community arts and cultural development, emerging and experimental arts, visual arts, theatre and dance.
The time has come to train unique arts activists — capable of activating critical and creative dialogue between art and the world, and committed to reshaping how art is produced, perceived and received. This was a space for me to share thoughts on arts policy, strategy and development and to show that people who work for the Arts Council, even Exec Directors, are not faceless, robotic bureaucrats.
