Good Morning!
This morning I have a press release to share!
PRESS RELEASE
Guelph Arts Platform
May 16th, 2011
The Platform presents an overview of how community interests will be incorporated into its project plan.
The Guelph Arts Platform seeks to establish a centre of artistic and cultural expression that provides quality services and amenities, and spaces for performance, rehearsal, workshops, studios, offices, galleries, retail and more.
Working with Artscape - a Toronto-based, not-for-profit urban development company with an expertise in building collaborative arts and culture spaces - as its mentor, the Platform distributed a Request for Expressions of Interest in early 2011.
The Platform received over 70 responses from community groups, and individual artists, as well as private and social enterprises. Community members articulated their thoughts in response to questions that dealt with topics such as the role they seek to occupy in a creative space, location preferences and space requirements.
The Platform has begun to draft a project plan that incorporates the variety of responses they received and is hosting an open meeting on Tuesday May 24th from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. in the auditorium (accessible from the side door on Cork Street) of Norfolk United Church.
The Platform encourages all REOI respondents and community members alike to join them for this information session. Come on out to learn about what members of your community hope for and the Platform’s vision for a creative space which speaks to the heart of the Guelph creative community.
For more information please contact: Amy Calder, platform.mc@gmail.com

Have a great day everyone!
