I have to start this post with an apology because it’s been on my to do list for months - and the longer I put it off the the more I felt like putting it off because I was embarassed about putting it off. So I’m sorry to everyone that I dropped the ball on coordinating the Paint the Streets project - at some point during the confinement I became overwhelmed with commitments and decided to drop Paint the Streets - I asked one or two others to help by taking it over but they were also over-committed. I got deeper into coordinating the AusMM actions group and realised that when working on rebel groups in Australia from overseas I only have limited communications “bandwidth” and that it’s impossible to be deeply involved in more than one working group.
So that leaves me with the question of where to go now with Paint the Streets?
From where I sit it seems that the Paint the Streets Australia Guide is a very useful resource as it is, and the Arts group offering the Sunday Arts Sessions is also useful for anyone wanting to get involved in Paint the Streets activity.
I was thinking to encourage groups getting involved in the Aus Mass Mobilization to take up Paint the Streets as an arts and action based activity in their new (or old) local groups and refer people to these resources.
- Are there other things people would like to do with Paint the Streets?
- Is there a group of people who would like to take up the job of expanding and building Paint the Streets?
Let me know
