NOTES

“…Less than a year later on 12 September 1984 I chaired a meeting of the Artworkers Union where Barbara outlined a proposal to hold a major visual arts conference. Five days later on September 17 there was another meeting where the details of the conference were finalised – where it would be held, the speakers: representing the Visual Arts Board of the Australia Council; local educational institutions: Qld College of Art, Brisbane College of Advanced Education, Qld University Fine Arts Dept, Darling Downs Institute of Advanced Education, Brisbane Institute of Fine Arts; State Government funding bodies and the Labor Party shadow minister for the Arts; Galleries: Qld Art Gallery, Uni of Qld Art Museum, Griffith Uni Art Collection, Institute of Modern Art, Qld Regional Galleries, Aust Commercial Galleries Assn, Qld College of Art Gallery, Civic Art Museum, and the dates – the weekend of October 27/28 – which was less than six weeks away…”
