Member for Shellharbour Anna Watson today announced a funding grant of $15,000 to Shellharbour City Council as part of the State Government’s Aboriginal Regional Arts Fund.
The funding will assist in the delivery of Council’s Weaving Cultures project.
The Aboriginal Regional Arts Fund supports arts projects that celebrate and promote Aboriginal cultural identities in regional NSW.
“I am delighted to announce this funding grant, which will help the local community appreciate the rich culture of our Indigenous people.
“This is also particularly important as we continue to engage in the process of reconciliation and prepare to formally recognise this country’s first peoples in the Australian Constitution”, she said.
