Call to be creative
Artistic residents and those with a clear view on how to develop the region’s creativity are invited to a forum early next month.
The Shire of Augusta-Margaret River is reviewing its Creative Blueprint document and seeking fresh insight from residents.
Facilitator Niomi O’Hara will host an interactive discussion “on the future of art and culture in the shire” at the Shire’s headquarters on March 5, starting at 5.30pm.
In a Shire media statement, community development officer Jessica Black said art and culture were important aspects of the community. “It fosters personal development, social cohesion, health and wellbeing, economic prosperity and local identity,” Ms Black said.
“Arts and culture is a way of expressing who our community is: our people, our values, our region, and our history.
“It’s what sets us apart and makes us uniquely Augusta-Margaret River.”
To register for the forum, contact Ms Black on 9780 5276 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Online submissions can also be made via the Shire’s YourSay portal at yoursay.amrshire.wa.gov.au.
