The Art of Working Together #2

Following previous workshops and conferences, RDA Peel will host a Sundowner for all those involved in the Arts and Culture Sector across the region. The aim of this session is to recognise the unique and influential history of the Peel Region and discuss hopes and aims for the future.

The fast-paced session will be held in the newly opened Murray Districts Aboriginal Association and as such will feature Indigenous dance and artwork, as well as an introduction and welcome to the centre by Marc Salmon. Following this the newly released Arts and Culture Action Plan will be introduced to the sector as well as an address by RDA Peel Executive Officer, John Lambrecht. From here a number of discussion and brainstorming sessions will be held to determine a number of goals for the sector and ways these can be achieved.

Throughout this time and over light refreshments, participants will have the opportunity to network with fellow artists and discuss their role in developing a vibrant, sustainable and economically viable sector.

RSVP’s are essential for this event – please email by Wednesday 11th February.


The Art of Working Together Conference – 30/07/2014

The contribution of the Arts and Cultures Sector to the Peel Region has been identified as one of great significance and even greater potential; as such RDA Peel is looking to support the sector through the establishment of a sector network. The network will aim to increase communication and develop connections between practitioners and arts workers within the region. The ultimate aim of this initiative is improve the sustainability of the sector and its members, increase its contribution to regional productivity and to increase the influence the sector has in policy decisions at all levels of Government.

On Wednesday 30th July, RDA Peel in conjunction with MPAC, hosted the first of many networking conferences. “The Art of Working Together” included: keynote speaker Rhys Williams -  Chair of Mandurah Performing Arts Centre Board; networking – both formally and informally over lunch and refreshments; PechaKucha Presentations; and facilitated discussions regarding the future of the sector’s network.

Thank you to those that
