Mary Valley Artslink to benefit wider community
THE Mary Valley Arts Festival Committee has joined forces with artists in the Sunshine Coast hinterland to form an independent group that will support and promote the arts in the Mary Valley.
The new organisation has been accepted as an affiliate by Artslink Queensland and will be known as Mary Valley Artslink, bringing benefits to members and the wider community to enable the development and enjoyment of arts in the region.
Mary Valley Artslink objectives include promoting the growth of the arts as a viable industry within the Mary Valley by providing a framework for artists to build individual projects.
Members aim to network with other artists, regional organisations and the community to hold Arts Creative workshops and collaborate with artists to exhibit and perform locally and nationally.
Founding member Heinke Butt said members also intend to work closely with the Kenilworth Arts Council and Cool Arts in Gympie.
