Community Consultations To Establish Cultural Priorities

Arts North West have been engaged by Arts NSW to conduct community consultation in Armidale to establish the cultural priorities of the Aboriginal community in line with the objectives of the Armidale and Region Aboriginal Cultural Centre and Keeping Place and we want to hear from community members and groups who are interested in having their voice heard in the process. “Arts North West is delighted to be working with the Aboriginal community to develop ideas and priorities for what is an iconic cultural institution not only in our region, but in NSW.” said Caroline Downer the Executive Director of Arts North West.
The consultations will be facilitated by Arts North Wests Aboriginal Arts Officer Lorrayne Riggs who is interested in talking to individuals and organisations within the community, and with a connection to the community in order to develop positive strategies and cultural priorities that will be used to provide recommendations to strengthen the centre.
“We really hope that the community can identify the positive outcomes this process can produce for the ACCKP, embrace the process and commit to working holistically in partnership to see how we can develop community driven strategies to strengthen the centre and drive the cultural priorities of the community in Armidale” said Ms Riggs.
