One of the findings of our Cultural Vitality Plan consultation was to develop a 'Melville Cultural Network'.
We started our monthly Arts eNews in July 2012. This newsletter promotes events and opportunities being offered by the City as well as providing an avenue for local artists, performers, community groups and creative enterprises to promote their events, activities and seek support from their community.
Fan of Facebook?
We have established a Melville Arts and Creatives Facebook Group. It is a place for Melville artists, community arts groups and creative enterprises to network and promote, connect and collaborate.
Banners in the Terrace Competition
Every year the Western Australian Local Government Association hosts the biggest community art project in the state. Councils submit a banner painted by an artist, school group or community group. The banners are then displayed along St Georges Terrace in Perth during August.
If you have a group that would be interested in painting the Melville banner in 2013, contact Hannah Katarski on email@example.com. A community artist can be organised to support and lead a community group or school group if necessary.
More information can be found on the WALGA website.

Entry forms for the Art Awards are available from February each year and close late April. View the City's Art Collection and public art on our Online Gallery.
