Have your say on the Gannawarra Arts Trail
Published on 06 November 2020
Gannawarra Shire residents are encouraged to have their say on what key themes they would like featured in the Gannawarra Arts Trail.
Council has engaged ‘Person Place Thing’ to develop this important strategic planning project, which aims to showcase art in the Gannawarra.
“The Gannawarra Arts Trail project is about identifying major creative opportunities within the Gannawarra’s townships that are brand aligned and designed to support visitation and profile the creative aspects of the Gannawarra,” Gannawarra Shire Council Chief Executive Officer, Tom O’Reilly said.
“This might include major art pieces, cultural interpretations, light installations or links to our natural environment.”
To assist with this process, residents can complete a nine-question survey, available below until Sunday, 22 November, which asks ideas and locations residents may like see considered.
The survey also asks what stories, people or past events that the proposed trail could profile, as well as what the qualities of an art trial for the Gannawarra region would be.
“All feedback will assist with the development of the Gannawarra Arts Trail, which will support Council and the community in seeking future major arts funding to develop art works, develop a coordinated tourist trail and ensure that our creative community is embraced and supported in developing these works,” Mr O’Reilly said.
“Council looks forward to the outcomes of this first stage of consultation, which will lead to another major tourism attraction for the Gannawarra and continue to recognise our diverse communities.”
