This is the official website for the art group of Tallebudgera Valley initiated by Jessica Blythe on 4 July 2016. Many interested folk were unable to attend the inaugural meeting so a ‘Talking Points’ paper written by Jessica was circulated.

Ideas are open for discussion via email listed below OR via the art-thoughts blog.

Alternatively, just turn up at 3 monthly Planning meetings where ideas will be open for discussion.

20 August 1pm Saturday; 21 August 10am Sunday;

Agenda for 2 hour meeting:

  • Response to Jessica’s Talking Points (all items up for discussion). Posted under Manifesto Tab
  • Decision on meeting time, dates and places for next three months (for 2016, places will be public parks so people can just ‘turn up’ to the training)
  • Decision on Naming of group. A suggestion of ‘Cougal Club’ has been received.(ideas to Jessica beforehand so they can be posted on this site)
  • Decision on theme/target/projects for next 3 months
  • Decision on style of organisation (incorporated or non-profit or collective or artist-run for example) and executive.
