DIY Cabaret workshop launch

Filed under: cabaret, performance art, Theatre, Gigs, General — site admin @ 11:27 am

Cabaret’s growth in Melbourne has been further strengthened by several leading venues partnering with the producers of the Melbourne Cabaret Festival and several industry specialists to present ‘DIY Cabaret’ – a new workshop on self-producing your show and gaining an audience. To be held every Wednesday night over eight weeks (15 October to 3 December) the workshop is suitable for emerging and mid-career cabaret performers, aspiring artist managers and marketers, and anyone curious about self-producing works for live performance at venues, festivals and by touring.
Facilitator Neville Sice says “There are plenty of courses out there that help you create a cabaret show. This is not one of them. DIY Cabaret teaches you how to produce your show and gain an audience for it.”

Discounted early bird registration closes 23 September. Go to www.diycabaret.com for more information.

Arts Project Australia in partnership with The University of Melbourne present
CONTEMPORARY OUTSIDER ART The Global Context
Exhibitions running from September 2014 to February 2015
A FREE international conference with associated exhibitions, film screenings, lectures and events across Melbourne from September 2014
Forty years after the term Outsider Art was coined to encompass works by untrained and unschooled artists who work outside the established
art-world, Contemporary Outsider Art asks “Is Out, the new in?”
Artist: Julian Martin
Exhibition: Everyday Imagining: New Perspectives on Outsider Art
1 October - February 2014 at Ian Potter Museum of Art
Outsider Art includes the work of artists who are self-taught and untrained and is often used to describe the work of artists who have had experience of marginalisation, disability or mental illness. However contemporary practices are diverse and challenge definition, including found art, craft, performance, graffiti, street art and much more.
