First Targeted Sessions Announced

12 Aug 2019

Regional Arts Victoria and partners in the Great South Coast invite you to attend one of the targeted sessions which will inform the development of a Creative Industries Strategy for the Great South Coast.

We want to hear from you about your specific needs so we can make sure this Strategy works for you and your region.

This is also an opportunity to meet one of your industry specialists and hear about what others in your community are working on.

Additional sessions will be added to the below list in the coming weeks. Stay up-to-date at our Facebook page:
