Be part of a national kōrero on art and creativity.
With just six days left of Arts Month, we're hanging out to hear what 'art is' to you.
It’s all about acknowledging just how vital the arts are to a thriving Aotearoa. To shift the perception from “art is elite” to “art is essential”. To celebrate the impact the arts are already having on our communities. What better time to play your part than Mental Health Awareness Week?
It’s a conversation every New Zealander can weigh in on, and more than 2,000 already have. Head to artsmonth.co.nz to submit your definition, or tell us on social media using the hashtag #ArtsMonthNZ. Did we mention there's a trip for four to Singapore up for grabs thanks to Singapore Airlines?

Creatives in schools—Possible opportunity at Nayland College

The creative learning experience will enhance the wellbeing of students/ākonga and develop their knowledge and skills in communication, collaboration, and creative thinking and practice. It will also raise their awareness of careers in the arts and creative sectors and benefit their preparedness for the future of work.

Find Your 'Sales' Voice
Thursday 17th October 2019
Many of us entrepreneurs and artists, healers and therapists find it enormously challenging to finding our 'sales' voice when promoting our product or service.
Yet drawing in new clients is absolutely vital...
Learn how to promote yourself and your services without sounding like a pushy sales-person!
Practice how to become much clearer and more confident about introducing yourself and your services - keeping doors open and conversations flowing.
Testimonial from previous attendees: .."I can't remember the last time I valued a workshop so much. Time frame was perfect - left me feeling like I wanted just a little bit more!" Pen Walkinshaw
"I signed up to do this course because I felt I needed that extra boost to effectively explain who I was and what I could offer in my business. Why would anyone chose me over any other business similar to mine? Do I put people off? How do I find triggers? I`m so glad I did. Angelika removed all the excess words I was using and helped me to improve my presence. At last I now know where I need to concentrate my energy on and speak more succinctly." Pauline Neal
Angelika has a wealth of knowledge in running workshops. www.angelikabarnes.com
9am-12pm, The Suter Art Gallery and Theatre, 208 Bridge Street, Nelson

Calling all New Zealand artists - sign up to our new, FREE service
Many New Zealand visual artists are missing out on a valuable income stream because until now they haven’t had access to the services of a New Zealand licensing agency. In an exciting move, we have launched a new, FREE service for artists.
The service will enable artists to earn money when their art is used for commercial or promotional purposes, including brochures and catalogues, websites and social media. It bridges the gap between artists and the organisations wanting to access art in this way, making obtaining permission and organising a licence quick and cost effective.
If you're an artist and want to sign-up for this free service - Sign up here >>
It only takes a few minutes, there is no cost to sign up and you maintain 100% ownership of your work.
More about this service:
Copyright Licensing New Zealand has been the licensing management agency for the publishing industry for over 25 years. We currently represent more than 800 authors and publishers and last year paid them more than $6 million in total licensing revenue. Working with Caroline Stone, an experienced art licensing consultant, we now offer this opportunity to artists. Caroline is excited about this huge opportunity for Kiwi artists to generate additional income. She also sees this as a way for businesses to support local talent.
