The purpose of this group is to bring together people who enjoy the arts for a variety of performing, visual & audio arts events. My vision for this group is that the planning and hosting of events is shared. If you have an idea, please use the "Suggest and Event" function, and indicate if you would be willing to be an event host. As an event host you will be able to update our calendar & e-mail members about your event.
I invite artists of every variety to join and actively participate in this group and share your talent with us, by hosting events that show case your special talent. I would really love to see this group evolve to include more hands on workshops, demonstrations, and an opportunity for US to showcase and share OUR talents with each other !
OK, Trying to sound as un-cranky as possible, but this needs to be said, please take this in the un-crankiest way possible. :)
If you RSVP "yes", please show up ! I understand that life happens and sometimes "yes" can change to "no", but please change your RSVP, as soon as possible if you discover you can not attend.
Also, many of our events are very mobile, in other words, we will be on the move. The responsibility of the event organizer is to set up an initial time and place to meet, and communicate that clearly. If you must be late, please make it YOUR responsibility to find us, and not our responsibility to find you, wait for you, or plan a precise itinerary so you can find us. The group that arrives on time gets to decide as a group where we amble off too. I am not comfortable walking around with a sign on my back or balloon tied to my caboose so that the late comers can find us. (I however, will usually wear some sort of distinctive feathered hair band and will let everyone know what colored feathers I will be wearing ) However, if you are the type of the person who doesn't mind holding a sign or wearing a balloon, feel free to do so ! Then when we see you looking for us, you can join the group after we have publicly humiliated you for being late :) (I am of course just kidding about the public humiliation, but I am not kidding about the caboose balloon.)
I'm really not this cranky folks, just want to organize & plan some fun meetings ! I am actually a very fun person, who just refuses to wear a sandwich board or a balloon !
