Central Coast Council is continuing to provide opportunities for local creatives to shine by showcasing their skills, art and talents in the next Creative Spaces program announced for 2023 and beyond.
The line up of creatives to host activities in the Gallery Container in the Toukley Village Green for the Creative Spaces 2023-24 program will positively contribute to the cultural life and increase visitation to Toukley for the benefit of local business.
Council Director of Community and Recreation Services, Melanie Smith said Council was proud to have curated an engaging program that fills the Gallery Container with creative workshops, exhibitions and demonstrations to ensure the greatest benefit to local makers and creators, and the wider community.
“Council is funding three visual arts programs to occupy three-month blocks from 11 September 2023 to 28 June 2024,” Ms Smith said.
“The program is now live and is vibrant and dynamic, so we encourage all community members to explore the schedule and regularly visit Creative Spaces in Toukley’s Village Green. There will also be regular updates on Love Central Coast to support the talent and creative ability of those within the community.
Council Administrator Rik Hart said this opportunity is of great benefit to our creative enterprises by providing a platform to showcase their creative practice as well as a terrific way to achieve broad support from the Central Coast community.
“The program has always been supported by the Central Coast, home to some of the county’s top creatives, from sculptors to painters, ceramicists, and designers,” Mr Hart said.
“The program has proven to be important to developing and supporting people working in the creative industries on the Central Coast and the value they add to the economy.”
