A previous Arts Industry Networking Night held at Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery.

Bundaberg community members are invited to take part in the upcoming Bundaberg Arts Industry Networking Night to be held at the Bundaberg Library soon.

The free event will give those interested in the arts a chance to hear from a range of speakers, network with other local creatives and receive industry updates, including local grant funding opportunities.

Bundaberg Regional Libraries Information Services Librarian and speaker at the event Stephen Harris said it was set to be a great night to hear from a range of different people while networking.

“This special event is aimed at bringing the regions’ arts industry together for an evening of information sharing and networking,” Stephen said.

“Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from a variety of guest speakers, learn about upcoming opportunities and network with each other.”

Regional Arts Service Network Project Officer Trudie Leigo said the event was a great way for the arts community to get together.

“We encourage artists of all kinds to join us for this event – writers, dancers, musicians, visual artists and performers,” Trudie said.

“Many artists work independently, often spending a lot of alone time honing their skills.

“It’s important to develop a network of peers, to share ideas, to collaborate with or expand your understanding of different artforms.”
