Artuccino is an Australian eZine mixing art, history, wisdom and good reading. It is here for pure enjoyment, an experience that is different for everyone. It is like Enid Blyton's "Faraway Tree" where every time you climb the tree there is a new "Land" in the clouds hovering just above. Your experience is different every time you visit.
Give Artuccino a little bit of your focus and you will be rewarded.
Artuccino is a place where art can be viewed, admired and enjoyed. Literary Journals and Blogs are discovered, wisdom is mulled over, along with short biographies of interesting thinkers. A small selection of especially selected books are presented with links to their authors and inspiration is waiting in every warm welcoming corner.
Artuccino interests people who enjoy art, wisdom, reading, thinking, dreaming and much, much more. It's a place you can visit over and over again. Each time you visit, we hope a little bit of inspiration may come to you or possibly you may leave a little behind. Artuccino is about sharing. It is a forum for me to share with Artuccino's visitors the wonderful things I've discovered in life related to the arts, literature and wisdom. And in turn it is a forum for Artuccino's visitors to share the wonderful things they have created and the wisdom that they find inspiring. Together we can all inspire each other.
In many ways Artuccino is a gateway to a world of inspiration.

Artuccino was created for you and the web site's creator, Diane Challenor (that's me). It is a forum to share our work. It gives me a gallery that I can access from anywhere in the world and show, with pride, to others. You can do the same thing, by adding a piece of your not-for-profit artwork to our Visitors' Art Gallery. Artuccino is the end result of a year of learning when I taught myself how to write the computer code required for building the web-site.
Artuccino was created to
you and me.
Artuccino is about sharing
in the spirit of the "Rainbow Fish".

Artuccino has an interactive feature for not-for-profit artists who want to share their art with the world. Another interactive feature is provided so you can share your favourite inspirational quote. You can find a cultural event to attend or a social group to join.
A very special section of Artuccino is called the Serious Sydney Socialiser. This section can truly be inspiring for those of you who want to connect with the cultural side of your city or town. The information provided is about cultural activities in Sydney Australia, however if you are from another place, use it as an example. It can be the basis for you to seek out similar cultural centers in your city or town. Most cities and towns have a library, an art society, a writers group or literary groups. They are there if you seek them out. And if you can't find one that suits you, create your own. In the words of Sarah Henderson "If you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel, go light it yourself." Two people can make a group and you'd be surprised how many like minded people suddenly arrive in your life.
