Wellington Creative Spaces Network
This network includes creative spaces in the Greater Wellington region and meets every six weeks to share resources, information and ideas. Members include Take 5 & Te Whare Marama and Dudley Arthouse (Lower Hutt); Vincents Art Workshop, Pablos Art Studios and Alpha Art Studios (Wellington city); and King Street Artworks (Masterton).
Arts Access Aotearoa co-ordinates the network. If you are interested in finding more about this network, please contact Pippa Sanderson.
Seeking: art tutors, volunteers, resources
Creative spaces require the skills of art tutors to work with their artists - part-time, in a relieving capacity or in workshops. At the moment, for example, Vincents Art Workshop is looking for a relieving art tutor. Vincents is also looking for a community representative to sit on its committee. For more nformation, please contact Glen McDonald, Co-ordinator, Vincents Art Workshop (T: 04 499 1030 E: firstname.lastname@example.org).
Creative spaces also value the work and contribution that volunteers can make.
