Sunday 30 May in Blayney. Explore local arts and culture, network, catch up with AOW activities and meet the team. ALL WELCOME.

Our annual regional gathering and AGM is always a great, social day out. A lovely way to explore arts and cultural facilities and activities of one of region’s gems, meet creatives and community leaders from across the Cental West, connect with Arts OutWest’s latest activities with a super quick AGM at the end.

We love the chance to catch up in person with so many creatives in the region, with the people we’ve worked with over the last year, with old friends and new, with people keen to learn more about what we do.

We’re particularly excited to show you around the brand new Platform Arts Hub, an art gallery and community hub located at the the refurbished 1876 heritage listed Blayney Railway Station. The building includes workshop areas, gallery spaces, a retail space, a heritage display and meeting rooms. Partners in the project are Sydney Trains, Blayney Town Association, Blayney Shire Council and Arts OutWest.

Plus we shout you a free morning tea and lunch. Its FREE.

All welcome!

Please RSVP (for catering) by Wed 26 May to artsoutwest@csu.edu.au or call 6338 4657
