Gannawarra council to sponsor six residents to attend Showcase Victoria

By Riverine Herald

COHUNA and district residents are encouraged to apply for the chance to attend Showcase Victoria in May 2020.

Gannawarra Shire council will sponsor up to six community members to attend the event, held at Bendigo's Ulumbarra Theatre.

Australia’s leading state-based performing arts marketplace, the two-day event provides a unique platform for producers, artists and theatre-makers to make connections and showcase their work to a wide range of venue managers and programmers.

Mayor Lorraine Learmonth said the event is a great opportunity for community members to build their skills in the performing arts.

“Applications must include an email address and phone contact number, name of nearest town, whether they have attended Showcase Victoria previously, and why they would like to attend Showcase Victoria in May 2020,” Cr Learmonth said.

“I encourage at least one representative from each community across the Gannawarra to nominate.”

Following attendance, successful applicants will be involved in selecting productions for the Gannawarra 2020/21 Arts and Culture program.

Community members interested in attending need to submit their interest by emailing [email protected] by December 31.
