Dreaming bigger for Dream Big in 2015

Dream Big is the foremost conference for culture in our region. 

"It's a rewarding day of sharing stories with leading professionals and networking within the many artistic communities in the Riverina," said Derek Motion of Western Riverina Arts. 

"Who better to tell you about what’s local and special than local people?"

The conference is now in its fourth year and will be held in Cootamundra for the first time at their arts centre. 

“It’s exciting that local councils right across the Riverina have come on board to support this great initiative. Many are taking advantage of the group discounts for tickets to send staff.”

People attending the conference will come away with lots of ideas of how to add vitality to their events with an understanding of what funding is available to support their ideas. 

Once again the line-up feature arts professionals and artists speaking on how to grow the arts in our region through sharing skills and creating networks.

“This is a great opportunity for local festivals and artists to make connections and learn about possibilities.” 

As well as sharing their experiences, this conference provides an opportunity to pick the brains of people producing public art. 

It's designed to inform a diverse audience, from local government through to artists looking for commissions.

"Dream Big is a chance to ask questions of people with years of experience," said Motion. "It's great to see what is achievable and to provoke people to think how to take it further."

Councils and cultural organisations will hear about how to engage with their community and attract new audiences at this year’s Dream Big conference hosted by Eastern Riverina Arts and Western Riverina Arts. Click here for more.
