A Creative Arts & Culture Vision

District Council of Streaky Bay

Promote and encourage the Arts by maintaining and increasing the diversity of arts and cultural opportunities

Country Arts SA

WE BELIEVE the arts have the power to transform lives and communities
is for a culturally inspired state leading the nation in regional arts
is to create great arts experiences with regional communities
WE RECOGNISE we are living and creating on Aboriginal Lands, and we are committed to working together to honour their living cultures

A New Partnership

The District Council of Streaky Bay and Country Arts SA recognise an opportunity to work more closely in a creative partnership based on a new model to realise the art and culture aspirations of communities in the Western Eyre region of South Australia.

In response to the changing arts and cultural landscape in the Streaky Bay region a new vision has been outlined in the Creative Arts & Culture Business Plan 2017-18.

For more information on the exciting art opportunities planned for the region CLICK HERE.

The Business Plan focuses on the themes of residencies, connecting through making and acknowledgement to facilitate:

  • A developing and dynamic visual arts sector;
  • Strong and strategic regional networks in dance;
  • An emerging presenter group; and
  • A curious community ready to engage

The partnership aims to develop new creative partnerships and collaborations which will provide innovative opportunities within and outside of our region.

Council supports that artists, arts workers and communities want to gain more exposure and recognises that a strong arts and culture sector will enable them to connect, prosper and grow economy through making.

In a changing arts and cultural landscape our communities will continue to connect, create and grow in response to the arts and cultural development facilitation role.

The Role

Jayne Holland, Arts and Cultural Facilitator, Country Arts SA and the District Council of Streaky Bay has a broad and significant understanding of the scope and impact of the arts in the regional context.

The officer will assist our communities in the communication and promotion, and engagement and delivery of the arts in the region so that the effective and dynamic networks that are in place will continue to build and develop in response to the region’s growing arts and cultural needs.

The geographical reach of the facilitator role in 2017/18 is:

  • The broader Western Eyre region (encompassing Elliston, Wudinna, Streaky Bay, Ceduna and Aboriginal lands and settlements further west)
  • Some art enquires from outside of the Western Eyre region and;
  • Other commitments in South Australia (or in Australia) as part of the Country Arts SA commitment to the partnership.

The District Council of Streaky Bay anticipates a new era of supporting and facilitating the producing and presenting of great arts and culture in our region and beyond in partnership with Country Arts SA and our communities.
