BMA are excited to announce we have secured $20,000 from the State government to deliver a project recognising the economic contribution that the creative industries make to our Shire. We know that festivals and events attract visitors who in turn spend money on food, accommodation, shopping and local attractions. We also know that many creative practitioners are small businesses in their own right. But what other important partnerships exist between our business community and our creative practitioners? This project will clarify the data, showcase best practice, encourage collaboration and provide training to support a strong, vibrant creative economy.
On Wednesday 16 Feb at 7pm, BMA will be launching it’s newest project showcasing the economic value of our local creative industries at this Castlemaine Fringe Creative Community Connection event!!
Hear from Merryn Tinkler, Council’s new Manager of Culture and Economy who will be speaking about her decades of involvement in arts leadership roles.
Plus The Fringe Thing will be conducting their AGM, so find out how you can get involved in the 2023 Fringe Festival.
