The activities and pop up events for Woden and Gungahlin initiative is part of new funding for the arts in Canberra, announced by the ACT Government in the 2017-18 ACT Budget.
Through an open request for proposal tender process, Belconnen and Tuggeranong Arts Centres have been engaged as a partnership to host two community arts officers, who will work with their respective communities in Woden and Gungahlin, to design and deliver collaborative community arts activities and events.
This initiative is based on a foundation of community arts and cultural development, which expresses, celebrates and promotes arts and culture created for and by the Canberra community.
The budget for the program is $270,000 per year from 2019 to 2021. Any inquiries for the program should be directed to the Belconnen Arts Centre (for Gungahlin) and Tuggeranong Arts Centres (for Woden).
