The Greek Australian Cultural League (GACL) is inviting artists to register for the first Greek-Australian Artists’ Directory (GAAD) that will be available online for the wider community.“The GAAD will be available as an online digital resource, introducing Greek Australian artists (and small art groups) to the wider community.
“The GAAD will be available as an online digital resource, introducing Greek Australian artists (and small art groups) to the wider community. It can also be utilised for research and education by artists, curators, teachers, students and the general public,” read a statement from the GACL.
The directory would also serve as an important community resource and archive of Greek-Australian art that will be to international standards.
“The GACL intends to support and promote those registered by sharing insights into this creative community with online publication of biographies, art statements, links and art work images,” said the organisation.
“Artists will also have the opportunity to document their practise in an internationally recognised, archival community resource; network with other artists and the wider community; promote and advertise their artwork and events online and through the GACL’s social media, its periodical and news print channels.
The artists would also be able, through the GACL’s volunteer programme, to take part in online art events and community workshops and would also gain experience in a range of skills such as arts administration, event management, curatorial projects, publishing marketing, community engagement and arts advocacy.
♦ Emerging and established artists can register for the GAAD by contacting the GACL by email on firstname.lastname@example.org. Updates and more information about the directory and the GACL will be available through the GACL website and its social media sites on Facebook and Instagram.
