As we hurtle towards officially launching Groundswell Arts NSW (we are now an incorporated non-profit organisation!), we are calling on the friends of Groundswell and all supporters of cultural diversity in the arts, to help us build a new website – a designated home for multicultural arts in NSW and to have it up and running on February 13th 2014 – the same day as our launch.

The new website will have an exciting new look and feel and new functionality. We’re keen to get started on it and even keener to deliver the first phase. But we need some help to get there…

To help raise the funds for the new website, we’ve started a crowd-funding campaign. Follow the link to view here:

If you want to help close the gap between the street and the stage… please click the link above and donate to support cultural diversity in the arts. And please share the campaign widely. Every little bit counts.

There have been lots of other changes around this place of late in preparation for our launch.

So take a look around this blog. Here are some of the changes:
·      We’ve updated on our board - adding profiles of current committee members, and on our activities to date. See the About Groundswell page.
·      We’ve updated on Groundswell’s history, and acknowledgements of supporters See Our History.
·      We’ve added a publications page for reports and resources relevant to CaLD arts See Reports and Resources.
·      Coming VERY soon – our Get Involved page will be updated with info about how you can add your voice to the mix and become a member of Groundswell Arts NSW.

SAVE THE DATE: 13th February 2014

Its been a while since we've updated and it may seem a little quiet on the surface but we've been very busy working behind the scenes. We've been talking. A lot. With government, with arts bodies and with members of our own arts community. Including you. We've been listening too. And we've been planning. Planning for our launch and beyond.

So what's in the pipeline for Groundswell Arts NSW?
We're planning our first AGM, welcoming new members, building a new website and working on officially launching the organisation. Busy times! 

We'll send out the invites for the launch soon, so stay tuned, but for now we invite you to SAVE THE DATE and spread the word. Our official launch will take place on the 13th February 2014 under the sails of the Sydney Opera House.

In the coming weeks we'll be updating regularly on our progress, and calling on the friends and supporters of multi-cultural arts to come on board and support our efforts. So stay connected. Check back in to this website again or follow us on Facebook and Twitter by clicking the icons to the right.
