Steven and Aleshia from the Arts OutWest team with Ro Burns from Forbes curated and installed the FLOW Gallery at the River Arts Festival Forbes. Together they transformed the Forbes Town Hall and adjoining St Andrews Presbyterian Church into the FLOW Contemporary Art Gallery.
Arts Outwest hosted the festival Arts Huddle in the space on Friday night which was moderated by Tracey Callinan. Artists Walter Breceley, Lucy Vader, Steven Cavanagh, Kathryn Lewis, Pol Cruz, Ronda Sharpe and Rosie Johnston spoke about their work and arts practice and let the conversations flow on to exploring the future for arts and cultural growth in the region. There was a terrific turn out for this opening event with an enthusiastic and engaged audience.
