Southern Forest Arts Hub

Published on Monday, 19 July 2021 at 8:00:00 AM

Last week Southern Forest Arts (SFA) was announced as one of two new hubs for the expanding Regional Arts Network initiated by Regional Arts WA and supported by the Minderoo Foundation and the Ian Potter Foundation.

SFA is the hub for the Southern Forests and Valleys region encompassing the Shires of Bridgetown-Greenbushes, Boyup Brook, Nannup and Manjimup. The other new hub is based in Moora. There are existing hubs in Broome, Port Hedland/Karratha, the Mid West, Denmark, Margaret River and Ravensthorpe.

The hub creates an opportunity to work more strategically and collaboratively between the many diverse communities in the region, plus connect into a state wide network. The hubs funding provides for a paid coordinator for two days a week for one year. The SFA Hub Coordinator is Fiona Sinclair.  Fiona has been the Artistic Director / General Manager of Southern Forest Arts for the past sixteen years. The position title has varied on occasion (including Project Coordinator, Secretary and slave) but the level of passion and commitment has been constant.

SFA are hosting an Art & Culture Winter Warmer on Monday 26th July at The Rabbit Hole with catering provided by Bridgetown Pottery.  The intent of the event is to connect with art and culture groups/individuals from across the region to explore ideas for working together to build more creative, inclusive and vibrant communities. Bookings are essential!
