Four high profile American artists/writers will be visiting Toowoomba  on Saturday, April 22, to take part in a discussion  on art and culture in the community at the City Library.

The group, being sponsored by the U.S. Ford Foundation, are in Toowoomba as part of a world wide launch of the book “The Artist as Culture Producer: Living and Sustaining a Creative Life.”

The touring party has previously been to the University of New South Wales and will be continuing on to  Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) and other venues before leaving Australia.

The visit to Toowoomba, which is being financed through a grant from the National Association, is at the invitation of Dr. Tarn McLean and Dr. Alexandra Lawson, who have the Raygun Gallery in Margaret Street, Toowoomba.

Sharon Louden, who is leading the group, says that “by travelling to Toowoomba we will be able to share our stories and experiences with the local community.”

Among those who will be attending are the Federal representative for Groom Dr John McVeigh, and the State member for Toowoomba South David Janetzki. Toowoomba councillor Geoff McDonald will be master of ceremonies for the discussion, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 11.30 a.m.
