A Christmas Nod from the Pod

Greetings Octapod-ites and may you have a joyous Christmas/New Year!

Remember, when you’re celebrating, to stay safe ….so that you’ll be around – healthy and well – to participate in the 2011 Octapod adventures!  Don’t lose your head – especially if it’s wearing its artistic hat!  We need all of those we can get!

Get your camera out and get snapping over the holidays – this is a great time to be creating some brilliant movies, crafting some creative zines, even weavin’ some wondrous words to craft some great Christmas stories … who knows, you might even want to publish them next year?

Whatever your artistic dreams are, don’t forget that we’re here to help you bring them to fruition next year and we’ve got plenty of artistic vehicles to drive them home in!  Come in and see us over January and let us help you get started.

We want to remind you that we’ve got lots of facilities here for the use of Community Arts activities – like:

  • A SeedPod Residency Program
  • Culture Hunter – a website for creative connections in the Hunter – its free!
  • Gallery Space
  • Community Media Space
  • Zine Library
  • Internet Café
  • Meeting space
  • Workshop facilities
  • Photocopying and Printing facilities

…and of course, we’re the home of the fabulous and world famous TINA [This Is Not Art] Festival. We’re also a great place to network and find out about other initiatives happening around the region.

So why not drop in next year and check us out, say hello, share a cuppa and some ideas ….we’d love to welcome you in to Octapod.
