Octapod Update

The Octapod Association is a non-profit arts and media organisation that helps facilitate This Is Not Art as well as an array of other exciting creative projects in the Newcastle region. The association is just about to hold its Annual General Meeting, this Saturday 30 April, 1-2pm at Octapod (on Auckland Street, just opposite Civic Park) and is also currently seeking new board members to join its team.

The commitment is generally no more than 1-2 hours per week (but not every week), including attending a monthly meeting (2 hrs). People with a passion for the arts, who are ‘doers’ would be great. The kind of skills they are looking for include: strategic planning/business planning, marketing, advocacy, legal, OHS, community consultation, financial skills. Practising artists and people who are willing to learn and pitch in are most welcome. The board generally attends to legal/contractual/strategic issues and provide advice and support to staff.

If this sounds like you, please contact Christina via podadmin[at]octapod.org for more info. A great opportunity to get your hands dirty with Newcastle arts all year round!
