WELCOME TO THE GREAT SOUTHERN IDEAS EXCHANGE!
we want to know what you think about arts, culture and heritage in the region.
Did you know the Great Southern Region has more than 50 visual and performing artists, 65 community and cultural organisations and close to 100 built and natural heritage attractions?
To strengthen our arts, cultural and heritage organisations and attractions, we are developing a Great Southern Arts, Culture and Heritage Strategy. This is an important document that will plan for the future, build capacity and be used to attract partnerships and funding.
