Cultural Development in Action seminar

The Shepparton Art Gallery is holding a community seminar on Thursday 12 November to share the results of an arts and culture report.

The report will be used to develop an Arts and Cultural Strategy and Public Arts Policy for Greater Shepparton.

Greater Shepparton City Council's Shepparton Art Gallery Director Kirsten Paisley said the report had been developed following extensive consultation with the community.

"During 2008, 200 people involved with the arts locally participated in a research project designed to inform the future of cultural planning in Greater Shepparton," Ms Paisley said.

"The seminar will outline the results of the report, as well as detail the next steps in the process of developing the strategy.

"I encourage anyone with an interest in arts and culture to attend the seminar."

Gallery Director Kirsten Paisley, Community Artist Angie Russi and Greater Shepparton City Council's General Manager Community Development Ian Martin will all present at the seminar.

Shepparton Art Gallery Education Officer, Angie Russi will deliver a talk on Community Cultural Development using examples from her own community art practice. Angie will also showcase a wide number of projects that have occurred in the Greater Shepparton.

The seminar will be held at the Shepparton Art Gallery on Thursday 12 November from 10.00am til 11.30am.

Bookings are essential and can be made by contacting the gallery on (03) 5832 9861.
