En­hanc­ing the Arts in the Hawkes­bury

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Community News -

Coun­cil is cur­rently seek­ing ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est (EOI) from mem­bers of the Hawkes­bury com­mu­nity to act as com­mu­nity rep­re­sen­ta­tives on the En­hanc­ing the Arts in the Hawkes­bury Work­ing Group. Mem­bers would need to have a gen­uine in­ter­est in the arts and be able to demon­strate knowl­edge, ex­per­tise and ex­pe­ri­ence in arts projects.

Com­mu­nity mem­bers are gen­er­ally ap­pointed to work­ing groups on the ba­sis of their sub­ject knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence, tech­ni­cal skills and or their abil­ity to in­ter­pret the com­mon in­ter­ests of res­i­dents.

The goal of the Work­ing Group is broad but the ini­tial fo­cus of the work­ing group will be around mu­sic sec­tor growth and in­creased com­mu­nity par­tic­i­pa­tion in the arts. It is also pro­posed that the Work­ing Group will iden­tify a range of projects, each with at­tain­able goals while also en­cour­ag­ing ac­tive par­tic­i­pa­tion and in­volve­ment by the com­mu­nity.

The Work­ing Group will pro­vide con­struc­tive ad­vice and prac­ti­cal sup­port and as­sis­tance to Coun­cil in en­hanc­ing the arts in the Hawkes­bury, with a par­tic­u­lar fo­cus on seek­ing ex­ter­nal fund­ing, fa­cil­i­tat­ing lo­cal arts ac­tiv­i­ties and events as well as en­cour­ag­ing au­di­ence par­tic­i­pa­tion. The Work­ing Group will con­sist of Coun­cil­lors, Coun­cil staff and five com­mu­nity mem­bers.

For more in­for­ma­tion or to ob­tain an Ex­pres­sion of In­ter­est Form please visit www.hawkes­bury.nsw.gov.au or con­tact Joanne Russo on (02) 4560 3354. EOIs close 5pm Fri­day, 29 Septem­ber 2017.
