First Meeting for RAGTIME show

Hi RAGsters...we had a very productive first meeting of RAG and made some plans and decisions about our first show

..."RAGTIME...turn of the centuries...1920-2020"
in October 2011.

Dates for the show are:
3rd - 16th October 2011
Opening 5th October
Drinks with artists 14th October

Thanks to Gilbert and Cigdem for their help and support.
After scoping the space we think that 15 artists is enough for this show.
That will mean 6mtrs each of space ( about 3 or 4 works each or one large) and $330 each for the space. The opening cost is $650 but we can get that down with donations/sponsors etc

If you are still keen and miss out, put your name on our list for replacements in case of drop-outs, and you may still be able to be involved in other ways. We plan to have many more exhibitions as a group so if you missed out this time (was first in first serve) you'll be prioritised next time.

We will be needing to delegate various roles such as marketing, co- curating, fund-raising, design team for invites etc
Our next meeting is planned for
Sunday 5th June
at The Woolpack Hotel
in Redfern

I will email everyone over next few days to make sure you can access the info/groups/blog blahdeblah
