Eastern Riverina Arts recieves funding for CreateSpace project01.05.2020
Eastern Riverina Arts has received $330,000 in funding to deliver CreateSpace, an innovative project that will see vacant or under-utilised buildings in Wagga Wagga repurposed for creative use.
The three year project aims to active the Wagga Wagga CBD and foster new community initiatives, drive cultural activity and creative industry.
Executive Director of Eastern Riverina Arts, Dr. Tim Kurylowicz, has welcomed the announcement as a proactive investment to help strengthen regional businesses.
“We applaud the NSW Government for recognising the crucial role that creative industries can play in diversifying and strengthening regional economies” Mr Kurylowicz said.
“We want to see people in our region turn their creative ideas into businesses, filling some of those empty main street shopfronts across our region, and of course just as importantly, playing a role in getting people out of their homes and connecting with each other again.
The funding was made available through the Stronger Country Communities program.
