Wednesday 19 July 2017

Local artists and creatives are invited to come along to an information session and learn how they can benefit from Mount Alexander Shire’s participation in the Regional Centre for Culture.

Mount Alexander Shire is one of four local government areas on Dja Dja Wurrung country to host the Regional Centre of Culture (RCC) in 2018 – a year-long celebration of culture in its broadest sense: people, produce and place.

The inaugural festival will shine a spotlight on local creativity, culture and events. The program will also include specially commissioned artworks, activities and community-based projects by local artists, as well as leading Victorian creative practitioners.

The sessions are a chance to chat and find out more about how you may like to be involved. Sessions include:

• Briefing from a representative of the Dja Dja Wurrung people - traditional owners of the land where the RCC will take place
• Introductions and briefings with RCC producers
• Briefing by Creative Victoria on funding programs available for RCC 2018
• Time for chatting about ideas.

“This is a fantastic chance to meet the Producers, Jo Porter and Elizabeth Walsh, and learn more about the vision, grant funding options and next steps for the RCC,” said Kara Finlay, Cultural Development Officer, Mount Alexander Shire Council.

“I urge everyone from our creative and cultural community to attend,” said Ms Finlay.
