CREATIVE residents from Heathcote and surrounds came together on Tuesday to discuss opportunities, ideas and initiatives available to further arts in the area.
The City of Greater Bendigo Arts and Culture team visited the Heathcote Gallery Space to meet with local artists, writers, performers and creators.
Arts and Culture co-ordinator Maree Tonkin said the visit was aimed at connecting with the wider Greater Bendigo community and providing information about what opportunities are available to them.
‘‘There are a range of community opportunities on offer and it was important to go out and explain these to the wider creative community,’’ she said.
‘‘Opportunities include a subsidy hire program and a performance subsidy.
‘‘We were also very interested in hearing what local artists and performers were up to and how we can help them.’’
