Arts in East Gippsland
The Shire recognises that arts and culture contribute to our prosperity from a sense of community engagement, economic development and health and well-being.
As part of the Arts and Cultural Development Program, the Forge Theatre and Arts Hub presents a public program of performance, music, exhibitions and workshops.
The Arts and Culture unit resources and produces a variety of programs and projects. A monthly arts e-newsletter is produced and distributed to local artists, arts groups and interested individuals. The guide to Art, Culture and Heritage in East Gippsland is 'Up Close and Personal'. For further information on these publications contact Council.
A small pool of grant funding is available annually through the Council Grants Program, to encourage local arts and heritage groups to produce projects in the community.
