The Mid-Western Regional Council is one of 21 communities across the state set to be inspired with exciting, ambitious, and innovative creative programming made possible through 2022/2023 Local Government Authorities (LGA) Arts and Cultural Projects Funding.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said $50,000 has been allocated to Mid-Western Regional Council to help fund programs at the Mudgee Arts Precinct.
“The program is still being finalised, but I know it will be a diverse one that will engage and inspire the local community and visitors alike,” Mr Saunders said.
“This will be presented through new works produced by local artists, and acknowledge Wiradjuri artists and their stories.
“The Mudgee Arts Precinct wouldn’t exist without the passion of the community, so I’m really proud that we’re able to nurture that passion through funding like this!”
Mid-Western Regional Council General Manager Brad Cam said it was fantastic to secure further funding for future exhibitions.
“This funding will enable the Mudgee Arts Precinct to continue its commitment to the delivery of an arts program of excellence that showcases, particularly, the extraordinary artistic talent of our local community,” Mr Cam said.
“The funding will also enable the Precinct to continue its integral role in the region’s cultural fabric with forthcoming exhibitions to include an exploration of the local Wiradjuri people’s artistic community.
“I’d like to thank the NSW Government and Create NSW for their investment in this important project.”
