Each project will be 6 half days delivery in an Early Years setting in central Somerset, working directly with groups of under fives. Huge congratulations go to the 681 fantastic young dancers who took part in Take Art’s Spring Forward and InspirED PrimaryFest youth dance platforms as part of Spring Forward Youth Dance Festival 2016.
The dancers aged from four to 19 years old demonstrated their creativity, talent and commitment to dance through their excellent performances in a range of styles, to 1,224 audience members. Over the last two months, Take Art Dance and InspirED welcomed professional dance companies to the county to work with young people and offer CPD opportunities for dance practitioners and teachers in the county. Spring Forward Festival also highlighted an array of exciting professional dance performances in Somerset venues, including shows from Mark Bruce Company, Zoielogic Dance Theatre, Joli Vyann, Cscape and Motionhouse, which many young dancers took the opportunity to go and see.
Take Art joined Salisbury Playhouse, Theatre Bristol and Activate Performing Arts to initiate discussions between those working in theatre in the South West at the launch of Theatre Fest West in Salisbury on Friday 18 March.
The day of celebration kicked off with a discussion between panel members Gemma Paintin (Action Hero), Anna Himali Howard (Breach), Tim Crouch and Niki McCretton (Stuff and Nonsense and The Lyric Theatre, Bridport) to share their own experiences of best practice and how they have overcome challenges they have faced as artists working in the South West. Sarah Peterkin, Director of Rural Touring and Co-Director of Theatre at Take Art, and Mark Helyar, Co-Director of Theatre at Take Art, joined Russ Tunney of Pound Arts to lead a Rural Touring discussion during the afternoon.
Phil Hindson, Arts Council England, led one to one Grants for the Arts surgery sessions throughout the afternoon. Celebrating theatre makers from across the south west, Theatre Fest West runs from 18 March to 2 April with events taking place across Wiltshire, at Salisbury Playhouse, Salisbury Arts Centre, The Pound arts centre, Wiltshire Music Centre and Trowbridge Arts. Farnham Maltings' touring production is a poignant, uplifting story - and more relevant now than ever.
Spring Forward is Somerset’s County Youth Dance Platform, produced by Take Art, where young dancers get the opportunity to perform on a professional stage, to be inspired by their peers and supported by Take Art and each other. 2016 will be the twelfth year of Spring Forward and each year attracts ever growing numbers of entries.
Alfred the Mouse Goes to School is an innovative new project that the Taunton Early Years Clusters are running across the more than 300 Somerset pre-schools they cover, supporting under-fives with the sometimes daunting transition to primary school.
Children will be able to interact through a series of creative activities addressing specific areas within the Early Years Foundation Stage. Alfred can be seen taking part comfortably in the reception class and wider school environment. Supported by Somerset County Council through the Raising Achievement Plan, and by the Taunton Early Years Clusters.
It started on Saturday 23 January with the first in a series of writing workshops, and had a fantastic turn out of 22 participants. The organisers are seeking first time and experienced writers to create five-minute scripts specifically for, and about, the town. Burnham-On-Sea Community Theatre Group was set up in 2015 with the aim of making the professional theatre experience available to all, to work with everyone in the local community.
In Autumn 2016 and Spring 2017 Take Art is taking part in an exciting national initiative* to bring more dance theatre performances to rural Somerset. But we need new energy to join our existing team of brilliant volunteer promoters to help us put these shows in front of an audience!
So, on Monday 11 January, we offered a safe and comfortable place for colleagues to have an honest conversation around diversity in the performing arts in Somerset.
Over 25 performers, participants, promoters and venue managers joined us at our office to get the ball rolling and talk.
We plan to look at how, between us, we can begin to implement some of these suggestions, particularly the role we can play at Take Art about widening the debate and supporting further networking opportunities.
SYDC will perform their piece Dreamstate on Saturday 12 March 2016 at The Edge, University of Bath. U.Dance is a programme led by Youth Dance England, which seeks to increase the number of youth dance performances and support those who organise them.
Due to popular demand, this season Take Art is running two training events designed for those working within the performing arts. Led by Mark Helyar, who has considerable experience in project planning, strategic management and fundraising, these training events offer a friendly environment for to share challenges and creative solutions. This training event will help people who want to explore prospective funding and investment opportunities for their work. Both events will take place in Take Art's large comfortable meeting room, Flaxdrayton Farm, South Petherton TA13 5LR. These FREE sessions are available for theatre makers who would like one-to-one advice on project planning, funding or any other specific areas of support. Champion fiddle player (and Buffalo Gals founder) Kate Lissauer has penned a film score for three early works by one of Hollywood's most distinctive and undiscovered directors. Champion fiddle player Kate Lissauer is well known to many on the Take Art circuit from her very popular old-time country music group Buffalo Gals. Beginning his career as a successful and sought-after actor, Borzage began directing short films in 1915. Kate Lissauer began her career as a champion fiddler in her home state of Maryland and is also an expert claw-hammer and old-time three finger banjo picker, a guitarist and an excellent singer.
John Whelan has been playing country and mountain music on the five-string banjo for many years.
Jason Titley was a long-time member of The Daily Planet, which toured extensively throughout Europe and in the US and left three landmark albums in its wake. Four emerging regional dance companies, Heather Walrond Company, aKa Dance Theatre, Exim Dance and Richard Chappell Dance, have been selected to perform as part of the prestigious annual dance festival, Resolution, at The Place, London. There is stiff competition to take part in the performance platform; to have four places offered is a rare opportunity for these local dance companies to showcase the high standard in current South West choreography and performance. From Somerset, aKa Dance Theatre Company will be performing their most recent work Next Door on Tues 26 January. Resolution is currently in its 27th year, and is a renowned performance festival for showcasing emerging new artists.
Hot off the press this week, our latest brochure covering January to June is packed with this Spring's performances, news on our projects and opportunities aplenty. If you are on our mailing list our Spring brochure is winging its way to you now - and if you're not, why not?! The rural touring diary is bursting at the seams with theatre, music, storytelling, puppetry, cabaret and dance, with performances taking place from now until the end of April all across Somerset.
Audience favourite Kate Lissauer (founder and fiddle player of the well-loved Buffalo Gals) visits us in a different guise, this time with Sonic Silents, a trio performing a live score alongside short early films by Borzage.
The brochure also has news on our work and projects across Dance, Early Years, Theatre, Music and education (InspirED). Take Art's associated company Tangle have been awarded ?49,900 from the Arts Council Strategic Touring Fund for virtuoso ensemble Tangle Company. Tangle Company will tour three township theatre works to new audiences and non-traditional venues across South West England through their two-year New Landscapes project.
New Landscapes is aimed at rurally isolated localities that have very limited access to professional African Caribbean arts activities.
Working alongside ZoieLogics 5 dancers, from 8th - 12th January 2016, exploring the concept of protest. ZoieLogic are looking for a volunteer with experience or interest in stage production and technical work to join them at the Octagon Theatre from the 8th - 12th January. Take Art has been granted ?89,150 from Youth Music to expand on the Early Years Music Network in the South West. Following on from the first Soundwaves network, Take Art has secured funding to continue their work connecting individuals, musicians and organisations keen to develop music in early years settings in the region. This grant will be boosted by match funding from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, SCC, InspirED and RIO to further strengthen the regional Early Years music practice. Five year olds are inspired by the very Long Gallery at Montacute and make their own noble self portraits…. A collection of eight renowned contemporary dance companies and artists are set to take dance to a new level – the rural stage. National Rural Touring Forum (NRTF) and their partners China Plate Theatre, The Place and Take Art are proud to announce the companies that have been selected to be part of the Rural Touring Dance Initiative.
Four of the eight companies selected for 2016-17; Panta Rei, Phoenix Dance, Spilt Milk and Sonia Sabri Company, were pre-selected as part of the bi-annual New Directions showcase 2014. All companies attended The Lab, a three-day specially designed course held at Halsway Manor in Somerset from 19-21 October. James Wilton of James Wilton Dance expressed his delight about being involved with the initiative: "I am thrilled to have been shortlisted for the Rural Touring Dance Initiative for many reasons.
On Sunday 27 September there was a great buzz all day long at Red Brick Building Glastonbury as it played host venue to the first Micro Theatre Festivals for Somerset. Samsa Theatre kicked off the festival with an exciting new production of Metamorphosis, presented by four young women and one young man from Huish Academy. These five companies repeated their shows throughout the day to a wide range of happy audience members of all ages. Our autumn Rural Touring programme kicks off this weekend with a rugby themed theatre production.

It’s a new season for Take Art in Somerset and our autumn brochure is hot off the press, making its way to mailing listers and various outlets across Somerset. To book tickets for any of our shows please visit our What’s On pages or click on the show links above.
Take Art continues to reach thousands of people across Somerset with opportunities and workshops in dance, theatre, music and early years creativity.
Take Art are offering audience members the option to bring a friend for free to these dance shows, and we have ten tickets per performance up for grabs. Youa€™re starting your Pozible journey, the idea is solid, and now you just need to get people on board. Dan Christie is the Co-Founder and Publicist at The Rag and Bone Man Press, an independent publishing house dedicated to books for change. For anyone out and about in Melbournea€™s emerging music scene, you've likely experienced the sweet tones of Erica Bramham at Open Studio or The Paris Cat. Security has always been high on our priority list, and wea€™ve learnt a lot in the last few years. Currently when you make a project, you can create an embedded widget that shows real time progress of your campaign. Successful projects currently have the option to keep their page open as a selling platform for products and other project-related goodies. To be able to show you around our shiny new site, wea€™re gonna need time to pack up and move in. If youa€™re currently drafting a project, avoid starting or ending at this time, and talk to one of us here at Pozible about planning for these changes. If you experience any problems using the new website or if you have any questions, please let us know.
A big part of my mission here at Pozible is to raise number that is actually pretty meaningful to a lot of people. On a daily basis I work closely with creators, providing advice at all stages of their campaigns. This question sent me on quest for answers into the data stores of Australia's biggest crowdfunding platform.
The next line up from that (orange line) is the campaigns in-between the 30 - 50% funded milestones. The next up (yellow line) is where i'm focused on over the next few months - if this group could be bumped up over that stubborn 70% funded mark, their chances of hitting their target would be much higher. Although this information is very general and doesn't really account for different peak activity times for different length campaigns, we can still learn a lot and at least we have some benchmark to compare to.
We know the look well - ita€™s the slight edge of panic that comes over our workshop crowds when you mention a€?social media strategy.a€? Because whether youa€™re doing it for work or leisure, social media is a big scary time suck - and one that can often be ineffective if you dona€™t know what youa€™re doing.
Plenty of businesses and campaigns are simply not suited to social media, but get involved because they think they have to. Dona€™t try to divide your time between 5 different platforms if your core community are only on Twitter. Great Forest National Park ran a highly successful Facebook-focused campaign built purely on great images.
Scheduling might feel impersonal, but in reality it frees you to improvise with your social media posts while the campaign is running, rather than playing catch up to the stuff you should have posted last week. There are plenty of tools out there to help you do what youa€™re already doing so you dona€™t have to. IFFFT for their dead easy a€?recipesa€? that bridge the different apps and platforms you use most often.
Ensuring photos shared from Instagram to Twitter show up as photos, rather than an unappealing link.
So the silly season is here but that doesn't mean your creative juices need to stop flowing. Some social good campaigns have had a lot of success with donation certificates as christmas gifts, "This year your christmas money went to XX in need" - A perfect gift for those who are impossible to shop for. While we do see a drop off in projects submitted for review over December for obvious reasons, there isn't actually a drop off in pledges per project. You'll notice in the graph that December is actually one of the best times a year to launch, with a greater average number of campaign supporters.
Pozible has ticked past some pretty mega milestones recently, with our 10,000th project launching within a week of our $40 millionth dollar pledged. Our most active categories have always been from Australia's creative industries, with Film, Music and Performance getting the biggest project numbers. We also spent some time with the people who often get forgotten - unsuccessful campaigners. Joana Partyka is a freelance writer and editor currently interning at Pozible and painting in her spare time. We spend a lot of time trawling Instagram to learn more about our projects, find inspiration and indulge in procrastination (shh).
For a business run by and for creative professionals, ita€™s little wonder Communea€™s Instagram feed is heaving with, well, creativity. Last year's winners were Bike Cabs, Bamboo Monkey and the Foster Care Association of Victoria.
Porter Novelli Melbourne is part of the Clemenger Group Limited, Australiaa€™s largest and most successful group of communications companies. Though it may seem the only way to get from where you are to where you want to be, waiting for someone in charge to pick you is an outdated idea that bears little fruit.
Making the decision to truly back yourself and ruthlessly pursue your dreams takes courage.
Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso, the women behind the sitcom Broad CityA­, even singer Rebecca Black (remember her?): they all circumvented the accepted route to success by creating their own opportunities instead of waiting for someone important to validate them.
Rejected from multiple entry-level jobs after university, CNN journalist Anderson Cooper also picked himself when he independently set off overseas as a foreign correspondent A­a€“ without any promise of being employed or commissioned. Cooper highlights the need to get out there and actively pursue goals instead of waiting around to be noticed, something many people count on but few experience. Equally, Pozible is all about people picking themselves, a tenet at the very root of the platform.
Applying for bank loans and making big, all-or-nothing investment pitches to businesses a€“ ones that delicately hinge on the whims of a corporate bigwig a€“ are no longer the only way to see your big ideas come into fruition.
So youa€™ve heard the inspiring outcomes of people picking themselves and youa€™re motivated to follow suit. In the age of the internet, the road to becoming a published writer, recording artist, illustrator or entrepreneur is literally a click away. When it comes to successful community-based Pozible projects, few campaigns come close to the mind-blowing success of the Pit Pony Experience.
Despite having zero prior involvement in crowdfunding, the Pit Pony Experience team approached the process with serious smarts, building a strategy around who to approach for support first. In a bid to attract this support, the team held a community meeting at the Collinsville town hall, which was at capacity for the occasion.
Dona€™t underestimate the importance people place on seeing that a project has already attracted significant support.
Sue is adamant her project would have struggled to gain traction with corporate purse-string-holders if not for the initial grass roots support. People often need to feel some kind of a personal connection to a project before theya€™ll part with their hard-earned money. But according to Sue, the driving force behind the entire campaigna€™s success was one reward in particular: the promise of a supportera€™s name appearing on the monumenta€™s wall of fame.
Leta€™s face it: everyone loves to receive rewards in the form of tangible goodies (hello, toy pony?). An intriguing point of difference is crucial to any money-raising endeavour a€“ whata€™s exciting about something thata€™s been done before? Even better, the team cleverly coincided the campaign launch with the 25th anniversary of the pit poniesa€™ retirement from coalmine service.
To secure the all-important large sums of sponsorship money, Sue and her Pit Pony Experience team approached companies that had a direct interest in the very essence of the project.
If your campaign aims to fund a new school in Africa, hitting up Gina Rineharta€™s people for some coin maybe isna€™t going to get you far. If you live on the internet like us, therea€™s little chance youa€™ve missed the work of Peter Drew. At the conclusion of his Australian tour, we had a quick chat to Peter about his experiences, from the crowdfunding process to how his project was received by the people on the street. Where did you get the idea for the project?The project was inspired by the second verse of the Australian national anthem. Can you describe a particular exchange or moment on your tour (negative or positive) that really stuck with you?In the first week of the campaign I met a man in Bondi who wasn't sure about my message. Joana Partyka is a freelance writer and editor currently interning at Pozible and repetitively painting in her spare time.
Every day since April 6th this year, thousands of people around the world have sat down to repeat the same creative act they performed yesterday. How can repeating the same thing over and over again possibly yield a creative breakthrough?
When you look at repetition from this perspective, it makes a lot more sense as the harbinger of creativity. 100 Day Project this year, recounts a conversation she had with fellow artist George Zisiadis. Like Foster Wallacea€™s observations on tennis and Zisiadisa€™ realisation about Picasso, the same principle applies to any other skill-based activity a€“ even launching a successful Pozible project. Mr Black, successfully funded via Pozible in 2013, went through more than 240 iterations of the drink before hitting their eureka moment. Mr Blacka€™s Tom Baker says the Japanese principle of kaizen a€“ greatness achieved through small improvements over a long period of time a€“ underpins the companya€™s operations and is the reason theya€™ve come so far. Tom says the key to hitting that creative jackpot is to simply start a€“ and once you start, the refinement process will take care of itself if you put in the work.
The creative world abounds with examples of people striking gold through their commitment to repetition.
What would happen if you practiced playing the piano for an hour every day over the course of a year?
The beauty of unlocking your creativity through repetition is that you dona€™t need anything special in order to strike gold, just your most basic tools a€“ a guitar if youa€™re a songwriter, a camera if youa€™re a photographer, pen and paper if youa€™re a writer.
Coffee and beer arena€™t a panacea for creativity a€“ you still need to put in the work, and you dona€™t want to develop a dependency on either substance (or on backflipping from rooftops into pools, for that matter). With so many social networks already out there - and plenty more launching every month - figuring out an effective social media strategy for your campaign, product or idea can feel incredibly overwhelming. When your project isn't doing as well as you hoped, it can be really tempting to play the pity or guilt cards to get people to pledge before its too late. More than any other reason, people seem to share as a way to show that they support and care about a particular issue. Ita€™s one of the less obvious issues facing Pozible project creators, but one we hear about time and time again: how do you promote your project and gain supporters without, well, annoying people? Having successfully crowdfunded the first print issue of Aphra Magazine with matchfunding support from Arts Tasmaniaa€™s Crowbar initiative, editor-in-chief Lucy McDonald talks to us about how to maintain that fine balance. Lucy says if they had to do it again, the Aphra Mag team would pay even closer attention to their marketing strategy. Rather than being reactive, Lucy says ita€™s important to devise contingencies for rough or slow patches before they happen.
It can be helpful to prepare marketing tools such as a social media calendar or media outreach timeline a€“ nothing overly formal, just something to give you and your team a clear direction so you're not scrambling for content and ideas halfway through the campaign. Apart from perhaps your nearest and dearest, asking people for money straight up is probably not the friendliest approach.
Consider what might drive someone to back your campaign, and work towards highlighting that in your marketing. Think of it like a mum waving to her son from the sidelines of a soccer match to remind him shea€™s still there, rather than the crazed dad flailing his arms and shouting out instructions from afar. Arts Tasmania's Crowbar initiative offers up to 50% matchfunding for Tasmanian-based arts projects. Theatre has long been one of our most active categories on Pozible, so we thought ita€™s about time someone gave some expert advice on the matter. Loud Mouth Theatre Companya€™s co-founder Campbell McKenzie, who last year successfully funded the company's Hamlet: Heads and Tails project through Pozible with Arts Tasmaniaa€™s Crowbar initiative. Ita€™s one of the more difficult obstacles to successfully crowdfunding a theatre project: your entire product and many of your rewards are tied down to one specific city. When crowdfunding a performance, the bulk of your rewards will no doubt be in the form of show tickets, and thata€™s a great, relevant reward. Campbell says he was initially very concerned about the Hamlet projecta€™s location specificity, but his worries proved unfounded. Though people often do pledge funds for no reward or a reward they cana€™t physically claim, ita€™s probably best not to hang your entire campaign on this strategy. Inspiring Eileen, which funded a performance choreographed by 100-year-old dancer Eileen Kramer a€“ who was also the star of the show. Hamlet: Heads or Tails project was in the novel idea of flipping a coin before each performance to determine which actor would play which part. Wea€™re not saying you should to turn to cheap, insincere gimmicks to drum up interest in your project a€“ just think about what you might be able to offer that no one else can. Inviting the public to have a say or claim some credit in the execution of your project can be a great approach to drumming up interest. If you can find a way for your supporters to be a part of the making process, this can sway fence-sitters into making the leap from admirer to financial backer. Most campaigns experience a slow period in the middle, only to have pledges shoot up again in the final days. Like any other Pozible campaign, your network a€“ and your visibility within it a€“ is often the key to your success. Surely the fairest, most democratic way is for parties to be required to spell out to voters in advance of a local election exactly what it's council tax proposals are, and then be legally required to stick to them if they are elected.
Friends of the Shelter volunteers work hard to make the shelter a warm, inviting place to build relationships between adopters and the cats. Despite the widespread protests that erupted last year, the rate at which people are killed by the police in the US has accelerated.

Chief executive David Harker said: “First Class Futures really will bring huge benefits to the North East if it is able to realise its vision of raising £100,000.

Kaag says the UN is also looking into recent reports of chlorine gas attacks in the country. Although the research has been pretty clear that there are health benefits to not sitting, we are just starting to understand that standing alone may be a good alternative, said Dr. The researchers then lumped the data in with nine other studies that measured chocolate consumption and heart disease. It was his second injury of the season and he didn't appear again, but while he has been troubled only by the odd niggle this year he has been unable to regain his form. We can do this for him and dance for him, make him well, make him strong, put him on the front, and all his team, dancer Timmy Galalingu said.

Disciplined, well organised and extremely hard to break down, Newcastle have rarely looked like conceding throughout their six-game winning run, and aside from tipping over a Richard Dunne header, Tim Krul was barely tested against QPR.
In return, Wijnaldum has been quick to praise McClaren’s input throughout pre-season, with the Yorkshireman’s experience of the continental game enabling him to establish a strong rapport with his club’s overseas contingent. The actual story is one of trying to find somewhere safe to live for some poor INNOCENT young children, not whether some "concerned " residents feel slighted.
An agent in the 1970s had also suggested a name change – “he said Tony Peters was too clubby” – and came up with Septimus Shildon.

A home win against the same opponents and a victory away to bottom club Sunderland are Darlington's only wins in their last 14 games, having started with four wins from the first seven. He and Chris Rushworth quickly removed the home openers and it became 49 for three when replaced Arshad and struck with his fifth ball. The game was notable for the second-half appearance of Downing, with the England international kicking off his second spell at his hometown club in an attacking central-midfield role. With the rest of the Boro squad currently on a training break in Marbella, it remains to be seen whether Downing heads straight out to Spain or remains at Rockliffe Park ahead of his new team-mates’ return next week. On Sunday, the forecast calls for a high temperature in the low 20s in Milwaukee, with blustery northeast wind gusts as high as 30 miles per hour.

Despite their success, Stuart says they have no intention of expanding their operation and is proud of their role in the burgeoning small-scale food and drink sector in the county. The problem for Brentford, however, is whether their soon-to-be departing manager, Mark Warburton, can motivate his team through the final throes of the campaign knowing that he will not be there to reap the rewards next season. Council leader Councillor Bob Cook said: “Local residents and businesses had to endure the eyesore that was Billingham House for several years. While the West Nile virus is not new to Maryland, health officials warn people to take precautions when heading outside to parks or to the beach, especially areas where there might be standing water. However, even though the opportunity to return to Teesside after a two-year spell in London was a powerful attraction, Downing insists he would not have rejoined Boro if he did not believe they had a realistic chance of promotion. Dad, Ian, is director at the family-owned Barkers Furnishing Store in Yafforth Road, Northallerton, where earlier this year Hannah, along with brothers William and Thomas, cut the turf to get a £3m expansion of the business underway.

The recently launched group is run by YMCA working with Council’s Sport and Physical Activity Team and Hartlepool College of Further Education. Highly commendable but you have to admit Britain has some of the most bone idle, pig ignorant litter louts in (wider) Europe. This is especially heartening, because it fits the theory that those people in our society who work really hard are the ones who get rewarded with a bit extra. Congressman Keith Rothfus (R-Pennsylvania), who is on his first visit to Israel, said he would share with his colleagues and constituency what he learned on the trip about the need for America to stand with Israel in her defense, the 'Post reported.

Together they provide a live performance of Kate’s score for the films, combining original composition and arrangements of traditional material.
She presently performs both as a solo artist and with her bands, Buffalo Gals and Buffalo Gals Stampede. John has learned from and been inspired by some of America's finest pickers, and has developed a creative and versatile style, including his own brand of two and three-finger picking.

These varied flavours of dance will be shown over four separate nights of the performance platform, marking the beginning of a 2016 tour for all four companies. Co-founded in early 2014 by local dance artists Jennifer Grant and Joe Garbett, aKa are currently based in Taunton as company in residence at Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre.

Debs Newbold brings us Tales from the Bawdy Bardess in a show strictly for grown-ups - and The Devil's Violin also specialise in storytelling for adults, in their fantastic production The Forbidden Door. Enabling Tangle to offer audiences a fresh performance experience, the project is designed to encourage people of all kinds to grow appreciation and enthusiasm for African Caribbean theatre. Each tour will enable a range of people living in areas of historic low arts engagement to experience high quality theatre presented in venues very close to them. The week at the Octagon Theatre will involve working on set constructions such as a maypole with chains, a bubble wrap wall and working from stimulus devised by ZoieLogic's writer and composer.
Roles will include supporting the Production Manager with developing the set pieces they are planning to work with, rigging and setting up lighting, operating sound and be ready to respond to what the process requires as and when. The project will reinforce regional music practice for the under 5s through high quality workforce development, complemented by a locally identified and varied portfolio of music projects in settings, initially  in Bristol, Devon and Somerset. As part of the initiative these five companies will take part in a week long residency, The Darkroom, where their ideas will be developed and explored further.
Contemporary dance is not something you would normally associate with rural locations so it is particularly encouraging that so many people working within this area of the arts are positive to the idea of exploring the concept.
I am really excited about my choreographic idea and the intimate rural touring setting would be the perfect setting for it.
Whilst upstairs in the studio, Somerset Youth Dance Company performed two pieces from their repertoire. With two hours to kickoff they pass the time arguing about the greatest moments and players in rugby’s history. Full of great rural touring shows, creative opportunities in theatre and dance, lots of stuff for schools and the latest news on all our exciting projects… take a look through the Issuu document below. You can find out more about our work and our shows by reading the programme below, checking out the What's On, News and Projects pages, or by signing up to our mailing list.
We hope that this offer will introduce and encourage new audiences members to develop an interest in dance and attend future dance performances in Somerset. Drop-outs and delays are inherently part of any website, but we've built our new baby to withstand much more traffic and keep chasing that 0% downtime dream. We've got a sweet new Plugins area which allows you to add useful tools and customising options to your campaigns. These cute little boxes are not going to make it in the move, so if you have a widget embedded somewhere on your blog or page, we suggest removing him because he is probably gonna break. You can still create a standard campaign hosted on our site, but we have some newoptions for creators hoping to integrate campaigns on their own sites, with personal branding and no Pozible re-direct.
The migration process might be a little bumpy and it's safe to say we'll experience some minor interruptions between April 2 - 6. The number i'm talking about is the overall campaign dream come true rate (success rate) for campaigns across the entire Pozible platform. From the heart palpitation of the initial launch, to the heart palpitations of joy when they hit their target. It's at these milestones that we see the biggest drop-offs, with each one, you're chance of hitting your financial target increases. This is so shockingly low because all the campaigners who were invigorated with just enough inspiration to get them to the launch button, but then never worked any further on the campaign resulting in $0 in pledges.
The main thing we can all take from this is that after the 10 day line, you really start to know if you're in the top line, or the 50-70% line. The very platforms that started out open and accessible, are now putting walls up to push monetisation. Embarking on social media without a compelling reason why you're doing it is the easiest way to waste your own time. These can often post across social media sites, BUT make sure you test out your preferred scheduling service first to make sure things like tags and images show up properly.
Schedule your "serious" updates, then vary them up with impromptu as-they-happen moments from the campaign, like thank-yous to recent pledgers, a screenshot of a funny comment someone left on your Pozible page, or a photo of your team member passed out from exhaustion on your couch. Youa€™re bound to discover things you didna€™t even know could be automated, which is half the fun.
December's when people are getting together more often, making merry and feeling generous, so it can be a great opportunity to get the word out about your project.
Project creators often tell us they're worried about running a campaign in December, when people might be otherwise distracted, but the important dates are really when you launch and close.
In fact, in theory you'll be competing with less projects for that coveted front page real estate. To celebrate, we did some soul searching, some surveying and some digging into our stats vault to see how crowdfunding has fared in Australia since we started 5 years ago. Buchan itself had only 400 people, but their campaign saw over $600,000 pour in from 1,694 supporters - many of whom had never been to Buchan and probably never would. But with more than 300 million active Instagram users per month, there's a lot of visual clutter to distract you from the good stuff.
Perfectly capturing the languid life of a dog, Nice Digs' feed features the brand's stylish doggy beds, throws, collars and leashes alongside some cute furry friends.
A magazine for young women that got its start on Pozible, YV uses their account to curate a selection of quotes, memes and art from around the Internet - all with their signature "You Go Girl" attitude. In short: you'll see shots of interesting people doing interesting stuff that'll make you want to hire a desk at Commune. Now back in Australia, Evie's Instagram presence showcases the fruits of her residency as well as pieces inspired by her everyday surrounds.
That's why we're thrilled to have award winning agency jack+bill back to support the Pozible community again this year with up to $30,000 worth of free PR support for three lucky Melbourne-based projects and one in Sydney! The three projects were chosen during a pitch night at Pozible HQ, and raised an amazing $55,000+ during their crowdfunding runs. While that faceless person in charge may very well choose you, it's dangerous to hang your entire chance of success on a strategy over which you have no control.
A bunch of Perth go-getters launched an ambitious new restaurant, forgoing the usual route of taking out a crippling business loan. Thata€™s something self-published childrena€™s book author and illustrator Jennifer Cossins experienced firsthand. Youa€™ve recorded the tracks (or not … work on it!), youa€™ve sent out demos to record companies and agents, and now youa€™re waiting. The project aimed to fund a commemorative monument to celebrate the legacy of coal mining ponies in Collinsville, a Queensland town located 250 km south of Townsville.
They understood the need to get the average community member on board before hitting the local council and corporations for larger sums of sponsorship dollars, who'd be more likely to help once they saw the community behind the project. Everyone wants to back a winner a€“ and things are no different in the world of crowdfunding.
If the project hadna€™t had that sort of input at first, neither the council nor the corporates would have run with it,a€? she says. The collective sense of pride and ownership imparted by that simple reward proved to be priceless. But for many people, the idea of gaining recognition for a project they backed is irresistible a€“ particularly in the form of a laser-engraved granite monument there for all to see forever.
The Pit Pony Experience team knew this, aiming to forge a new identity for Collinsville as the pit pony capital of Australia.
Is it blazing a never-before-walked trail, or celebrating something distinctive and noteworthy? As Collinsvillea€™s history is steeped in mining a€“ and the project aimed to commemorate the towna€™s coalmine ponies a€“ local mining companies were an obvious fit.
Since April this year, the Adelaide artist has been travelling around Australia to share his a€?Real Australians Say Welcomea€™ message, pasting up his posters around our capital cities and major centres while talking to people about their views on refugee policy along the way. There was so much that I had to figure out as I went, especially in cities like Brisbane and Hobart where I'd never been before.

A drawing, a photograph, a typographic image a€“ whatever the theme or medium, theya€™re making an effort to repeat this act for 100 consecutive days.
Isna€™t that the complete opposite of creativity, which is all about exploring new ideas and processes?

He was surprised to see sketches exhibited alongside Picassoa€™s Guernica, and says via Luna: a€?You mean it didna€™t happen in one fell swoop?
Also a tutor at Yale School of Art, the project was born as a way of instilling in his students the importance of creative discipline.
By the end of it, youa€™d probably be able to tickle the ivories with minimal thought or effort. Ita€™s why many of our best ideas come when wea€™re out for a jog or in the shower: those actions are so ingrained they free our brains to hit the valuable lightbulb moments seemingly out of nowhere. Commit to repeating your chosen craft regularly a€“ not necessarily every day, but frequently enough for it to gain traction and yield measureable improvements.
Alertness, inhibitions and even circadian rhythms are impacted by our choice of beverage, but does it go beyond that? We love this genius infographic by Ryoko Iwata that shows the surprisingly profound impact our two favourite legal drugs have on creativity and productivity. Take advantage of this by converting your text updates into eye-catching images that are easy and fun to share. However, research suggests that positive messages, especially those that contain humour or the awe-inspiring, are far more popular than ones that suggest sadness, anger or even empathy. Think about the different causes that are important to your target audience, and how your project relates to them.
If there's a particular target audience you're after, take a look at where they hang out, and make notes on what posts prove most popular. It might run counter to your creative spirit, it might seem pointless as your excellent project speaks for itself, or you might be afraid of coming across as an insufferable braggart. But if you're launching a Pozible campaign, ita€™s something you need to get comfortable with a€“ your project depends on it.

You want to cast your fundraising net as wide as possible, but youa€™re not sure how people will respond to a project delivered outside of their home city.
But the key to overcoming the seemingly impossible obstacle of location specificity is to offer rewards unbound to location.
Instead, more bankable rewards such as performance posters can spur lots of people to pledge small amounts. Unfortunately, we cana€™t all be amazing 100-year-old dancers, but we can certainly draw inspiration from her. Decked out in various eclectic accoutrements such as corrugated iron and random couches, the grungy location and set made a€?a perfect counterpoint to a play about a rich nation falling aparta€?, according to Campbell. Whether this involves actually contributing content to the show, casting by coin toss, or even just giving them special access to behind the scenes photos and footage as you progress through rehearsals, people who feel like theya€™re an actual part of what youa€™re doing are more likely to pledge and, more importantly, to spread the word. Youa€™re baring your soul, hoping people will respond positively to your creative project and funnel their precious, hard-earned money into it. I've been thinking about it a lot recently - because my kids are going to go to school soon so we're trying to work that out - and realise how important that is, but I never had an inspirational teacher.

The father of the a€?pick yourselfa€™ mantra, American author and entrepreneur Seth Godin says although it's a cultural instinct to wait for permission, taking responsibility for achieving your goals a€“ picking yourself a€“ will inch you ever closer to your own definition of success in ways you never knew possible. Godin says the worlda€™s gatekeepers a€“ the hiring managers, the university selection boards, the sports team captains a€“ are losing relevance and power thanks in large part to the door-opening possibilities of the internet.
