Please note that this is a historical account of this venture, and it is unfortunately no longer active.
My partner, Mos Day, has started up StageWRite here in the Aldinga Bay area. The idea being to create a meeting place on-line for artists, performers, musicians, songwriters& technicians in the local area. StageWRite will also be bringing performance writing workshops to the region, as well as working with local theatre companies to develop scripts and stagecraft skills.With the StageWRite website as a place to meet others of similar interests, and a place to put yourself on line without charge, collaborations and communications between the local performance arts community will be made easy.
Promote Yourself Free
StageWRite is a completely new, community focused,performance writing group, based in the Aldinga Bay region of the Fleurieu Peninsula.
Aldinga Bay is blessed with many fine performance artists,writers, actors, directors, entertainers and musicians, and it is from this group of arts workers and performance artists that StageWRite was conceived.
Currently performers and performance writers who are based in the Aldinga Bay region have limited opportunities to come together and collaborate on projects, or to form strong local connections within their own community, with local businesses and other performance artists.

Similarly, there are limited opportunities for Aldinga Bay residents to be able to access, or to participate in, performance based activities without having to travel outside of their own region. With a local performance writing group based here in Aldinga, local cultural and artistic activities could be developed which, in turn, would help to strengthen the local performing arts community and provide them with opportunities to generate economic activity.
StageWRite have recently received funding from the City of Onkaparinga toprovide a number of ‘Performance Writing’ workshops at the Aldinga Community Centre, Symonds Reserve, in 2009. These workshops will be offered to all members of the local community, so that everyone, from the very young to the not so young, can come along and enjoy the fun.
In addition to these workshops, StageWRite is able to provide their website as an online ‘gathering place’, whereallWine Coastartists, performers and entertainers can promote themselves and their events, or form local collaborations or partnerships with other local performance artists and writers, with the aim to bringperformancearts to all who live, work and play in the Wine Coast district of the City of Onkaparinga.

StageWRite will bepresentinga series of performance writing sessions in 2009 at the Aldinga Community Centre, beginning in March.
