Regional Champion Recognised with 2017 Arts Leadership Award

Regional champion Sheena Boughen has been awarded the Creative Parterships Australia 2017 Arts Leadership Award for her outstanding and innovative work in the sector, alongside three other industry leaders. The awards ceremony took place on the 26th June at Melbourne’s Australian Centre for Contemporary Art where Minister for Communications and the Arts, Senator the Honourable Mitch Fifield thanked the award winners, saying “their private efforts and contributions had a character that can only be realised when something is done willingly, freely, passionately and as a mark of personal commitment.”
 
Sheena has long been a champion of arts and culture within the regions, and was the driving force behind the development of Nature’s Concert Hall Four Winds Bermagui.
