New initiative to support our artists

Mount Alexander Shire Council is proud to announce the launch of a community driven project called Get Lost to showcase local creatives and is calling on artists, community, the creative sector and investors to get involved. 

Mount Alexander Shire Council’s cultural development officer Vicki Anderson said creative minds across Jaara Country have been collaborating to explore new ways to finance, make and share creative work. 

Ms Anderson said the Get Lost project, launched Tuesday, includes a creative and innovative online platform for makers and creators to collaborate, exchange ideas and share content.

“It also includes a grants program to kick start and generate content development and a philanthropic fund to establish the vital funds needed to support our creatives into the future. 

“This exciting initiative was developed in partnership with the local creative workforce and the timeline has been rapidly accelerated due to COVID-19,” she said.  See the Mail for the full story. Out Now.
