Multicultural Arts Victoria invites culturally diverse and Aboriginal artists and cultural leaders in the Goulburn Valley to participate in a series of FREE cultural leadership workshops taking place on Tuesdays from May 29 – July 10.
The workshops will provide unique opportunities to share ideas and develop skills in cultural leadership, creative enterprise and cultural management. They will also create spaces for networking with established artists and leaders, local government, business, media and cultural sectors, and discussing common issues with peers and experts.
The workshops will be held at The Connection – Home Yurri Catering, set in beautiful bushland between Shepparton and Mooroopna on land that holds a significant cultural connection to the local Aboriginal community.
The workshop topics have been developed in collaboration with Emerge Cultural Ambassadors and respected community workers, Mellisa Silaga and Betul Tuna, to provide specific skills and tailored mentoring in topics such as public speaking, leadership, social and creative enterprise, project planning and design and building sustainable cultural festivals.
Presenters and facilitators are all highly skilled experts in their field coming from a range of organisations including Greater Shepparton City Council, ABC, One FM, Shepp News, Shepparton Animation Festival, The Connection, Hijack’d, Know Your Roots, Shepparton Albanian Festival and Inclusive Consulting.
The workshops are part of Multicultural Arts Victoria’s Emerge Cultural Leadership Program that has been supported by Gandel Philanthropy to empower community through arts and culture
