Celebrating Arts in the Community

Well it's been some time since our last update but it's taken me this long to struggle up to the surface from under the weight of submissions we're currently reading. Love that. Also the performance nights have swung into action again but we're still looking for all those writers out there to come and lively them up. If you're in our neck of the woods why not check it out? It's a great way to let us preview your writing if you want to submit to the mag or even be on the next CD. But mostly it lets you get your work out there to an often bemused, stunned and sometimes even interested audience. Anyway, the dates are in the previous post and I can also add that it is ongoing fortnightly beyond those dates...

Creative Communities & Christchurch Community Arts Council

These two organisations are instrumental in not only the publication of Catalyst but the activities and projects of many artists and groups in Christchurch. They have been stalwart supporters of Catalyst - we love them and want to have their babies.

They are hosting a celebration event this week for all the groups and projects they support. The Catalyst Crew are representing with noneother than Doc Drumheller, Jody Lloyd and Myself performing poetry in honour of the groups' support of Catalyst.

If you'd like to see the plethora of projects supported by Christchurch taxpayers via these wonderful groups and be entertained by some amazing performance (followed by the poetry - heh!) come along to:

Phillip Carter Auditorium in the Christchurch Art Gallery, Thursday 9th March, 7.30pm.
