PORT DOUGLAS ARTISTS MAKE FRIENDS
Port Douglas Artists is a group of experienced, professional artists practising in the Douglas Shire. These artists have been loosely involved with each other in various art related projects for many years.
In 2016 that relationship was formalised into an incorporated group which aims to provide members with:
• Peer/collegiate support and networks
• Support with developing art based initiatives such as exhibitions and events
• Awareness of funding opportunities for artists and events
• Opportunities to assist local artists to increase their profile within the artistic and general community
Until recently, membership of the
group has been limited to invited, professional artists.
However, in response to interest from other community members, who are keen to bring their skills and experience to supporting the aims of Port Douglas Artists, a ‘Friends of Port Douglas Artists’ membership has been created.
‘Friends’ may or may not be practising artists and anyone with an interest in the arts will be very welcome. If that’s you, contact Secretary Jill Booth (email@example.com) for an application. www.portdouglasartists.com
