Over the next month, the Upper Hunter Shire Council will be hosting a series of workshops in Murrurundi, Scone and Merriwa to develop a cultural plan to shape Council’s investment in arts and culture over the next ten years.
Everyone is invited to attend.
Artist and cultural consultant Jenny Brown will be facilitating the workshops alongside arts curator and writer Dr Ann Finegan, pioneer of the highly successful Kandos Cementa Festival.
“We want to hear about plans to preserve existing halls and theatres, build new ones, host creative workshops, festivals and exhibitions or promote what’s already happening around your town,” Miss Brown said.
“Culture means different things to everyone. We want to capture what culture means to the Upper Hunter, create a plan that reflects this and the aspirations of the people that live here.”
The workshops will be held at:
If you are unable to attend workshop but would still like to be involved in the planning process, register your interest and a survey will be posted to you or can be completed here.
