DIY project for new art performers

RACONTEURS is a new opportunity for creative people to work alongside a team of talented local and international artist associated with local troupe Dance Integrated Australia.

Creative director and producer Philip Channells confirmed expressions of interest are now open for those keen to immerse themselves in a creative arts workshop program in the heart of Byron Bay.

This series of multi-artform workshops was designed to cater for people from diverse backgrounds that are interested in performing.

A racounteur is, after all, a person who is skilled in relating stories and anecdotes interestingly, as explained by Channells.

Channells said the project's missions is to enhance participants' skills in writing for theatre, dance, movement, choreography, sound design, street performance and other multidisciplinary practices.

The inaugural project is the brainchild of Mr Channells, a Clunes resident, who said the workshops endeavour to discover new models for sustainable, regional-based arts practice for those living in the Northern Rivers and NSW North Coast.

"Projects like Raconteurs can support the development of artists' work through connecting them with like-minded community members, while enabling a platform to establish new professional networks and develop collegiality," Mr Channells said.

"At the same time, Raconteurs boosts the region's creative capital and contributes to its national reputation for producing high-calibre community arts events."

The program will be held at Byron Bay's Scout Hall for two weeks from Tuesday, November 14, to Friday, November 24.

Workshop passes will range from $50 to $120 and bundles will cost between $210 to $350.

Expressions of interest close tomorrow. To register visit, https://form.jotform.co/72877208852871.
