Cal­en­dar boost for arts

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS - Sam Gibbs

The Har­vey and Wa­roona vis­i­tor cen­tres have joined forces to cre­ate a shared arts hub cal­en­dar for local artists, com­mu­nity mem­bers and tourists.

Har­vey cen­tre man­ager Gemma Long­ford said the cre­ation of the hub would al­low artists to be show­cased on a big­ger plat­form.

“It will be a fan­tas­tic re­source that will be avail­able to local artists and creators to de­velop a re­source for tourists who come to our area and want to learn what’s on of­fer,” Mrs Long­ford said.

“This is a great way for the Har­vey Vis­i­tor Cen­tre to sup­port our tal­ented local creators.”

Mrs Long­ford said the idea was to cre­ate a one-stop shop for arts events in the re­gion.

“It’s a great op­por­tu­nity and we strongly en­cour­age peo­ple to take ad­van­tage of the arts cal­en­dar that we have com­plied.

“When vis­i­tors travel to the area, whether they stay for one day or two weeks, they will have a re­ally clear idea of the kinds of cour­ses they can en­rol in, the kinds of art gal­leries that are avail­able and any open stu­dios or work­shops.”

The hub of­fi­cially started in Novem­ber and Mrs Long­ford said she was keen to get more peo­ple in­volved to fill out the cal­en­dar.

“We have so many tal­ented artists, we saw a need to sup­port them and also to pro­mote the amaz­ing re­gion that we live in,” she said.

“If any­one knows of any­thing arts re­lated that they would like in­cluded in the cal­en­dar we would love to hear from them. We would also love to hear from local artists.”
