Aarti Bajaj Wild Dreamer Productions on 101.5 2018-08-16
Artistic director and lead performer of forthcoming stage spectacular MEERA - THe Production is determined to change perceptions around the arts being a viable career option.
To show how serious she is, Aarti Bajaj who holds a Masters degree in both Indian contemporary and classical dance, has reached out to Gold Coast and Brisbane schools to host workshops to educate students and future performers of the opportunities for them both onstage and behind-the-scenes.
Ms Bajaj will be hosting one such workshop at the Queensland Academy for Health Sciences tomorrow, Thursday, 9th of August from 2pm to 3:30pm.
Last month, Ms Bajaj hosted a wildly successful workshop at Clover Hill State School.
"Arts in today's world is not a viable career. You have to be at the top or you can't make it a career," said Ms Bajaj.
"My production company, Wild Dreamer Productions aims to create a platform where art is celebrated and respected with full integrity.
"We are building a place where we are giving wings to multiple different talents to fly, and dare to dream big.
"We created the complete makeup team with our two makeup directors who then gave workshops to young makeup students and newly-qualified makeup artists, and now have a team of 20.
"Our stage manager is not from the world of arts, but she is an intelligent doctor who has all the intentions and commitment to learn backstage management skills, so she along with her crew will handle backstage for MEERA."

MEERA will make its debut and world premiere on the 4th of November 2018 at HOTA (Home of the Arts).
