And with our newly minted web-site you can keep up-dated, without our emails. (See the front page at the bottom of this note. And a huge thanks to Jeanelle who put in a massive couple of months building the web-site. J, you’re wonderful!)
* cruise around it and let us know what you think – especially the blog. You’ll see how extensive our program has been! And heaps has happened that isn’t in the blog!
* keep in mind our electronic skills are pretty basic and we haven’t learned how to twiddle all the knobs and whistles – yet!
Fortunately, a social media genie has just appeared to help out as well.
* a pretty clear idea of how we want it to keep progressing, but we will be making shout-outs for help! (We could do with an electrician pronto!)
We think we have been very successful in developing a wonderful community resource – but it doesn’t mean the path ahead is plain sailing!
Thanks to lots of people – including tens of thousands of dollars worth of legal assistance, pro bono!! – we’ve had some success – including a ruling in the Planning & Environment court (July 2014).
However, we are concerned there are trolls lurking.
We think everyone has a fundamental right to develop themselves, grow their music, their art, their culture – in fact, who they are! – in a responsible and reasoned manner of their OWN choosing, without being pinned to the lowest common denominator of bureaucratic tub-thumping machismo (masquerading as neighbourhood pettiness and angst perhaps?) or corporate cherry picking.
But as well all know, the world doesn’t always work openly, honestly and rationally.
Catch you here again – soon! Here’s to it!
