Brisbane Twestival

twestival-logo2A few of you will recall an event I co-managed in February called Twestival at Brisbane's Metro Arts. Well, it's on again and I've been handed the reins! Saturday, September 12th is Twestival Local. It's the same deal, but we choose our own charity to support instead of a global charity being chosen for all events around the world. I quite like this idea as it creates a close-knit sense of responsibility for Brisbane and Queensland. The links on the Brisbane branch which I give are:

We are seeking one lucky charity, a kick-arse venue, charming sponsors, wicked bands, entertainment, artists, stalls, web masters, event gurus, stage managers, admin and general awesomeness for this event. Please e-mail me at events@nicolejensen.com if you would like to give a hand or offer up some contacts for us.

Lastly, I came across this useful article on how to secure a sponsor for an event. It's pretty cool.

Twitter Job Hunt

This afternoon, the lovely people on my Twitter list decided to help me in my search for employment!

Just a sample of the retweets.

Huge thanks to Clare Lancaster for starting this chain of tweets and to all who did RT. You're all fantastic. Including those who have brainstormed with me and linked to never-ending Twitter job searching sites. There will be some creative methods to "find this woman a job" coming about soon!

In other news, Twestival is on all over the world on Thursday. Have you bought your ticket yet? Come and join us at the Brisbane Twestival for fun, games, great entertainment and good times; all raising much-needed funds for those thirsty in the world.  I'm so excited!

Brisbane Twestival 2009

Twestival!

I'm working with a team of Brisbane Twitter users to bring you our branch of Twestival, the international Twitter Festival raising funds for Charity:Water.

The event is set for February 12th, a day after Pecha Kucha, a day prior to Friday 13th and two days prior to Valentine's Day. We are currently working on confirming the venue and also scoring some winner entertainment. If you're an entertainer, artist or other individual-of-groove, let me know and we might just have a place for you on the night.

My main role on the committee is to seek sponsorship of the event, whether it be funds, services or products. If you are a proud Twitter user,  I would be so humble as to ask for donations to the cause. Please note that Twitter members organising the event are all volunteers; we're not pocketing any of the cash as 100% of funds from Twestival will go to Charity:Water.

Stay tuned for more updates on the Brisbane Twestival 2009 site!
