With the silly season mostly over i thought i should fire off a quick update.
Despite my earlier fears about perpetual un or underemployment, I seem to have landed on my feet. Actually i seem to have landed so heavily on my feet that i am in danger of being rushed off them.
The Renew Newcastle project is going gangbusters. Renew Newcastle has signed a major agreement with the GPT group that will allow us to access as many as 20 or more shops, offices, and buildings that will be available to artists and community groups until GPT’s major redevelopment of the Newcastle mall precinct begins construction – probably in 2010.
The most exciting part of all this is that the first group of projects have already started receiving their keys and will be ready to launch is little as a couple of weeks. We are also hoping to be able to make a major announcement about funding at that time – which will be particularly great as i have spent a small fortune on the project thus far and it would be nice if someone better resourced than me started chipping in!
