The Myall Lakes is one of 21 communities across the state set to be inspired with exciting, ambitious, and innovative creative programming made possible through 2022/2023 Local Government Authorities (LGA) Arts and Cultural Projects Funding.
More than $2.3 million will go towards supporting the NSW arts and cultural sector in delivering exceptional experiences for locals and visitors.
Nationals Member for Myall Lakes, Stephen Bromhead, said $30,000 has been allocated to help fund a program of exhibitions, performances and events at Manning Regional Art Gallery.
“These exhibitions, performances, and events will showcase work from emerging and established artists” Mr Bromhead said.
“Manning Regional Art Gallery is a vibrant cultural hub which nurtures artistic practice and fosters community engagement with the arts so it is fantastic this funding will enable more creatives to showcase their work.”
Nationals Minister for the Arts Ben Franklin said the latest round of funding for local arts and cultural programs will support the creation of 21 additional programs in 2022/23, drive economic benefits in local communities, and provide entertainment that audiences want.
“This year has seen a real focus on First Nations arts and cultural programming. Local councils from across the Sydney Metropolitan region, Western Sydney and regional NSW are putting their best foot forward to deliver unique and diverse programming and experiences,” Mr Franklin said.
“It’s anticipated these programs will be experienced by nearly 750,000 people, and involve over 3,305 artists, leading to more upskilling and career development opportunities for emerging and professional artists and arts and cultural workers.”
Local Government Authorities have been funded for programs focusing on excellence in arts and cultural outcomes for the communities of NSW.
