The Ginninderry CREATE Program provides a great opportunity for residents to find their inner artist.
At Ginninderry we recognise that arts and culture are at the heart of our community identity and participation in the arts is central to creating vibrant and connected communities. With our new community centre, the Link, situated in the Strathnairn Arts Association precinct, we have a unique opportunity to develop programs and workshops with the many artists who call Strathnairn home.
We also believe in ‘beautility’ which means that we search for ways to bring creativity into all that we do.
The CREATE Program is about working together to express our values, passions and beliefs, to learn together and discover friendships.
Some of the projects which are already underway in the CREATE Program include:
- The Landmark Sculpture project – soon to be unveiled, an iconic landmark which will commemorate the beginning of the Ginninderry project.
- The Link Door Panels – designed by a local artist to represent the beauty of the surrounding landscape.
- Ginninderry Local History Project – an oral history project celebrating those who lived at Ginninderry before us.
- Yurwang Bullarn – the Strong Women Aboriginal Women’s Art Group who are making beautiful fabrics and woven items for the Ginninderry Project
