Stories are the life blood of human culture. Tales and yarns dominate the bible, pre biblical myths and legend all the way to modern life. Stories are memorable. They stir the emotions and prompt the brain. Stories are as necessary to humanity as food. So any project that encourages the narration of a story is to be commended and supported.
I am committed to the growth of live performing arts, helping to reclaim their role in contemporary society. Supporting theatre is supporting life, as it is time for theatre to catch up with the new age and soar beyond the gothic melodramas of the past.
The written word defines our artistic creativity in literature, music, film, television, theatre, art, technology… just about all human processes and emotions require the word to stimulate our passions. Writing is the soul of humanity.
Human beings have advanced solely by learning lessons from the past, thereby helping us to shape a brighter future. Stories are the best way to learn these lessons, and stories of the future hold the key for a better world.
‘There is nothing like a good story!’ Story’s move us, teach us and add value to our lives. This is why we are in the business of show business; a creative challenge where we strive to refine the art of story telling for growth and the enjoyment of all involved.
What we focus on
The arts provide a strong identity and shared a sense of pride in being part of a community. In its creative nature, we can turn any dream into a reality, preserve our history and strengthen our culture to form a solid foundation for future generations.
- Stories – finding and recording the narrative
- Talent – the support and development
- Programming – the creation of ART
The programming fund provides risk relief and other support to the groups and individuals creating within our focus areas.
The funding provides opportunities to share stories, in turn creating an ecosystem ripple effect that brings enjoyment to our community, drives customers to local businesses, and enlivens our local City of Port Phillip through Arts, Events & Entertainment.
