Mansfield Courier - - PROPERTY -

THE Arts Coun­cil of Mans­field re­turned its ex­ec­u­tive in­tact af­ter its an­nual gen­eral meet­ing last week.

As be­fore, Lee Hu­ber is pres­i­dent, Liz Ban­nis­ter vice pres­i­dent, the trea­surer is Melinda Grant and the sec­re­tary Ge­orge Ma­nis.

“Late last year the arts coun­cil sub­mit­ted a grants ap­pli­ca­tion re­quest­ing funds to as­sist with the pro­duc­tion of an Arts and Cul­ture brochure for our re­gion,” Ms Hu­ber said.

“And we were de­lighted to find out re­cently that our ap­pli­ca­tion has been suc­cess­ful.

“The grant is through the Foun­da­tion for Ru­ral and Re­gional Re­newal – Small Grants for Ru­ral Com­mu­ni­ties pro­gram (Round 24) - and we have re­ceived $2880 in grant funds to be used to­wards the pro­duc­tion of our brochure.

“The foun­da­tion ad­vised they re­ceived in ex­cess of 500 grant ap­pli­ca­tions in Round 24 and we were one of only 120 suc­cess­ful re­cip­i­ents.

“Our ap­pli­ca­tion’s suc­cess was largely helped by the strong sup­port re­ceived from the com­mu­nity.

“We were pro­vided with letters of sup­port for the idea from Mans­field Shire, Mt Buller Mt Stir­ling Man­age­ment Board, Yooralla, Up­per Goul­burn Wine Food and Cul­ture Group, Mans­field District Hospi­tal Aux­il­iary and Kin­loch Wines, Mans­field District Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion, the Na­tional Alpine Mu­seum and the Mans­field Mt Buller Re­gional Tourism As­so­ci­a­tion.

The arts coun­cil has now formed a work­ing group to be­gin pro­duc­tion on the brochure, with a July date to have the brochure com­pleted and ready for dis­tri­bu­tion.

It is ex­pected this brochure will be an in­te­gral piece of mar­ket­ing col­lat­eral for the Mans­field re­gion.
