52 Weeks of Creativity
Funded by FRRR, 52 Weeks of Creativity is a calendar of events with art exhibitions, workshops, networking functions, school holiday programs, live music and artisan markets ensuring cultural activities in every week of 2021. Events will utilise regional artists for exhibitions and workshops targeting both the local community and visitors to the region.
The project is funded by FRRR’s Tackling Tough Times Together program with a top up from Arts OutWest via the NSW Government’s Arts Restart funding package.
Partners are Sydney Trains, PLATFORM Committee of Blayney Town Association, Blayney Shire Council and Arts OutWest.
Arts OutWest employs the Platform Manager on behalf of Blayney Town Association who received the funding from FRRR. Additional support includes funds from the NSW Government’s Arts Restart package.
The restoration and revitalization of the waiting rooms at Blayney Railway Station is underway, preparing for it to become the region’s newest community arts space.
