Yorke Peninsula Council is seeking expressions of interest from community members to join the Yorke Peninsula Council Art and Culture Working Group.
The Arts and Culture Working Group will consist of up to six community representatives, at least one Narungga First Nation community representative and two Elected Members.
It will be led by Arts and Cultural Facilitator Sonya Rankine, who is employed by Council and Country Arts SA to support and strengthen local community connectedness across all ages through social inclusion, cultural development, civic pride, and community identity.
“We are looking for people with a connection to the arts and passion to see the growth of arts and culture in the Yorke Peninsula Council,” she said.
“A main objective of the Arts and Culture Working Group will be to support the organising and delivery of the 2023-24 Yorke Peninsula Art Exhibition.”
Other objectives of the group include supporting the work of the Arts and Cultural Facilitator and providing consultation and guidance on arts and cultural projects.
“The group will also help identify areas of need and growth in the arts and culture sector on the Yorke Peninsula, and identify and apply for grant opportunities,” Ms Rankine said.
“Other objectives will be the inclusion of Narungga First Nation representation as well as providing consultation and guidance on the development of the Yorke Peninsula Council Arts Activation Strategy.”
Expressions of interest should include why you are interested being part of the Working Group, knowledge and experience across art forms, knowledge and connection to the local community, and knowledge and connection to Narungga First Nation community.
Applications must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm Wednesday, 30 November.
