Exciting things to come for ATA

-

Over this time, ATA have given so many opportunit­ies to local artists and performers to grow and promote their art. This has not been limited to locals either with the group securing many national and internatio­nal artists and performers over the years too.

Even if you think you haven’t heard of them, everyone has attended and enjoyed events, performanc­es, exhibition­s and workshops that this hard-working group of local individual­s throw their heart and soul into organising for the communitie­s benefit.

ATA are now embarking on an exciting new venture with Moira Shire Council to increase opportunit­ies for local artists and performers across the whole shire.

Four Creative Hubs have been formed and ATA is coordinati­ng the Yarrawonga Mulwala Hub.

The three additional hubs will be based in Cobram –Arts For All, Numurkah – CAN Hub and Nathalia – GRAIN store.

The ATA joined forces with other local arts and cultural groups, including Allegro, Yarrawonga College P-12 Community workshop, Festival of 1000 voices, Yarrawonga Neighbourh­ood House and Yarra Mul Artists Associatio­n to form the Creative Hub.

Over the last 12 months, they have delivered a number of events and sadly have had to postpone many more due to Covid-19.

This hasn’t dampened their enthusiasm and they have already developed a full calendar for the next 12 months that will include Oscar Winner Adam Elliott, Buskers, Laser Light

Show on the Shire Hall and so much more. The ATA is now looking for a suitable venue for a base for the hub, so that they are visible to the local community. This hub will become the epicentre of arts and culture in Yarrawonga Mulwala increasing opportunit­ies for local artists and performers and providing local organisati­ons a way to work together.

You could help out with a venue or you can always join the ATA, who are currently having a membership drive.

If you are new to town or have an interest in arts and culture, why not volunteer to join the fabulous committee.

The four hubs are now working with Moira Shire to establish the Moira Arts Hub Network, which leads to this exciting opportunit­y for local graphic designers.

The Moira Network requires a logo, one that brings the four hubs together, but also gives them their own identity and makes an easily identifiab­le brand that will promote arts and culture across the Shire.

Local graphic designers, will need to live and/or work within Moira shire, so it is important to note that Mulwala designers will also be eligible to submit a design.

The initial concept is due October 15. Five designers will then be shortliste­d and given $500 to develop their idea.

From the five, one design will be selected and awarded $3000 to finish the logo.

Across the Arts (ATA) is well establishe­d in Yarrawonga Mulwala and has been successful­ly promoting and delivering arts and culture in the community for over 36 years.
