Gualala Arts is excited to announce that we are holding a two-day event that will celebrate Gualala Arts' first 50 years and help shape its destiny for the next 50.

To help with this process, Gualala Arts is planning this two-day celebration and visionary opportunity, Tuesday and Wednesday, October 19 and 20, 2010.

Gail Taylor, an international organization consultant who lives in Gualala, will facilitate the event. Gail assists groups with the processes and tools needed for thinking, working and bringing common goals to life in ways that elicit and enact the imagination and creative abilities of the community and its members. More information at her website,

Gualala Arts Center To begin the celebration of Gualala Art's upcoming 50th anniversary next year, participants will reveal the design process and tools that brought so many people together to develop this unique arts center. What will the next 50 years for Gualala Arts look like for our community? What are the big dreams that will set us forth on a new phase of maturity and well being?

Our two days together will be highly interactive and engaging ... a combination of fun, learning, and hard work. These two days will reveal a new way of working together. While 50 years is our horizon, the next 5 years is our focus.

We are hoping that all of Gualala Arts' Interest Groups, our sponsors and our community partners will be represented. If you are interested in participating, or have questions, please contact either Michele Marshall (GA Board of Directors) or David "Sus" Susalla (GA Executive Director).

Space is limited to 100 people so please reserve your space ASAP. You are welcome to join both or either day.
