Get your Bod to the Pod!

Hey There,

Welcome to the world of Octapod – if you’re in Newcastle and haven’t checked us out yet, then what are you waiting for?

If you’re associated with the Arts in any way, in any form, then we’re your No. 1 support body in the Hunter Region.  Got a creative idea you’d like to get off the ground?  Talk to us – it’s what we’re here for.

You’ve probably been to something great in Newcastle and not even realised that Octapod has helped to make it happen….like the Stomp Festival which ran for some 14 years…..and like the TINA festival  where you might have got a taste of Sound Summit, Electrofringe, or Crack Theatre….or maybe you’ve come along to one of the fabulous new art exhibits in the Podspace Gallery?

Newcastle has a thriving Arts and Culture community – and Octapod is right in the middle of it all.  Here’s a few reasons for you to get in there quickly:

Don’t Stop Me Now …last 2 days of this stunning exhibition by Stevi Cannon and Jan Denzin…guaranteed to make you go WOW but only until this Sat, 20th November

CAPSIZED – our first fundraiser is happening this coming Saturday from midday at the Lass O’Gowrie hotel in Wickham.  Back to Back bands until midnight, stalls, art, food, and fun!  If you’ve got some artwork you’d like to donate to help us raise much needed funds, we’d love to take it from you.

PROMISE – the new exhibition opening at Art Systems – 40 Annie Street, Wickham – is the first from the Hunter Disabilities Network and showcases the works of artists with a disability – until Nov 21

and finally….the best reason for you to pop in and check us out……BECOME A MEMBER TODAY – truly, it’s as cheap as chips! You’ll be supporting your local community arts AND you’ll be a most welcome addition to our mailing list so we can keep you posted of new events and initiatives happening in your community.   We’re on the top floor of TPI House, 3/231 King Street, Newcastle.

See you soon,
