What we're about

Let's Support Local Talent in and around Brisbane!

Hi! I'm Brenda and have taken over this group started by Tamara. I would love to keep the essence of this art community that she has started and embrace and support all artists in the Brisbane area.

I am a part-time artist and love sketching, life drawing and play with other mixed media when I have the time from my busy life. Art is like therapy for me and does help keep me sane in this crazy fast paced life that most of us lead.

My hope for this group is to work as a community to share events and support other artists and share art stories.

From Tamara, the founder of Hearts of the Arts. 'Occasionally, as an artist, I am forced to step into the limelight e.g. when I have to give a speech at one of my exhibition openings. Even mingling can be way outside my comfort zone.

As a result, I am completely in awe of the amazing talented performing artists who are able to perform their magic out in the open, with a live audience, completely exposed in front of prying, critical eyes. And we have a plethora of these brave and talented people here in Brisbane and on the Gold and Sunshine Coasts.

I have a dream that this group can support emerging talented artists as they perform around Brisbane and give them encouragement along the way. Also to help support visual artists at that nerve wracking opening night of their exhibitions. It is so much easier when you know there are receptive and supportive people there for you on the night. Here in Brisbane, we have a whole army of incredibly talented artists in all spheres of the arts and so many leave our city for the opportunities elsewhere. We do have the opportunity, though, to get out and see the most amazing talent of the future before they are famous and have a ball whilst we are doing it.

Join us for events like art exhibition opening nights, cabaret and burlesque shows, circus acts, festivals and live music, live theatre, sketch and stand-up comedy, improv, dance, literally all kinds of performance art.

Put simply, THE ARTS!!!

We will try and get along to as many opening nights and live performances as we can and I'm hoping to make this one of the most exciting and vibrant meet-up groups in Brisbane.'

Join us for opening nights, fun times and some sweet group deals!

We're Arty but not Farty!

Please let me know if you wish to be a co-organiser so that you can run or share events via this meetup group. Let me know of any events that we should be sharing also!
