Regional Arts Victoria will ask our small town communities ‘how can art transform your town?’ at an information session for the Small Town Transformations program on Thursday 3 December in St Arnaud.

$350,000 is being made available through the program for six small towns to undertake creative projects.

Councillor Tony Driscoll said residents were being encouraged to think big.

“The idea of Small Town Transformations is to inspire artistic risk-taking and to motivate people to create, share and discuss new work, in turn attracting new makers and new audiences to their townships,” Cr Driscoll said.

“We’re encouraging people to think outside the square. This doesn’t need to be limited to visual art. Architecture, games, performance, design, and music could all be the basis of a great project under this program.”

Expressions of interest for Small Town Transformations are open until 29 February 2016 with successful projects commencing in August 2016.

The St Arnaud information session will be held at the St Arnaud Senior Citizens clubrooms, Golden St on Thursday 3 December from 6.30pm.
