WHILE The World Waits exhibition opened at Cowra Regional Art Gallery on Saturday, June 3 to a great crowd and will close on Sunday, July 2. The regional tour is ending soon, so if you haven't seen the show, please head over to Cowra. The exhibition will then go into storage for a while. The tour will wrap up in 2024 at the new Forbes Cultural Centre, which is currently under construction. We'll let you know when we have the dates. ARTS marketing and arts funding workshops will be held in Cowra next week. The arts marketing workshop will be held from 11am to noon and the arts funding workshop from 12.30-2pm on Tuesday, June 13 (new date).

The workshops, for creatives with Arts OutWest staff, will cover easy, low-cost arts marketing and arts funding (including the Regional Arts Fund, Create NSW). Come to one or both. The workshops will be free. (Those who come to both are asked to bring their lunch.)
