9 February 2011
Show & Share Cafe - Inner West, Sydney
Hi everyone. We want to let you know about our new monthly event for women from all creative paths. You may have already seen some information on our website.
The first Creative Womyn's Show and Share Cafe will be held on Thursday 24 February 2011 from 6pm – 8pm. Please email to register or phone Gabe Journey on 0400 619 868 for more information.
What's it all about?
Reconnect with that childhood "Show & Tell" energy and excitement of sharing with others about something you have created. Whatever form of creativity you enjoy, Creative Womyn's Show and Share Cafe is a place for women to discuss their creative journey.  We share our latest creative work, ideas, goals, challenges and achievements in a friendly cafe in Sydney's Inner West. 

All creativity welcome:  Writers, Poets, Spoken Word Performers, Actors, Film Makers, Visual Artists, Photographers, Craftswomen, Sculptors, Mixed-Media Artists, Jewellery Makers, Musicians, Cake Decorators, Weavers, Digital Artists, Knitters, Painters, Cooks, Graphic Artists, etc.

This is a lovely space to listen as well as share, and to inspire your creative self and others. We are aiming each time for a small group of up to 10 women to ensure plenty of share time for everyone.
If there is a lot of interest we will have a waiting list and also look into options for other meeting times.This gathering is for women. It is a drop in style so if you can't make one Cafe you can always register for the next month.
The group meets once a month at Romey's Cafe, 4 Crinan Street Hurlstone Park. There is free on street parking, and Romey's is only minutes walk from Hurlstone Park railway station. View more information here The cost each month is $20 which includes a hot drink and Romey's home-made savouries. We look forward to seeing you there !  
Not in Sydney??
If you don't live in Sydney, you might want to start something up yourself closer to home. This idea was sparked from years meeting up with friends in small talking circles based on Julia Camerons The Artist Way "Creative Clusters".  Julia shares some great guidelines for creative groups at
You might already run something similar in your area, if you do let us know and we can include it on our noticeboard if you are looking for more participants or just want to share about it.

Creative Quotes
"Re-vision -- the act of looking back, of seeing with fresh eyes, of entering an old text from a new critical direction - is for women more than a chapter in cultural history: it is an act of survival."

Adrienne Rich, Poet, Educator
"I write for myself and strangers. The strangers, dear readers, are an after-thought."
Gertrude Stein, Author
"Who knows where inspiration comes from? Perhaps it arises from desperation. Perhaps it comes from the flukes of the universe, the kindness of the muses."
Amy Tan, Novelist
