Engagement and Partnerships
As part of the City of Greater Bendigo’s commitment to support and nurture creativity in all its many and varied forms, our Creative Communities team works within a community cultural development framework and forges important partnerships.
We work with rural communities in the Greater Bendigo area, artists and creatives, community groups, organisations, NGOs and government agencies and peak industry bodies.
Establishing Emerge Culture Hub Bendigo
Emerge Culture Hub Bendigo aims to increase opportunities for emerging refugee communities to participate in and control their own cultural development.
The Emerge Cultural Hub in Bendigo is part of Multicultural Arts Victoria’s Emerge Cultural Network. Emerge Culture Hub Bendigo is supported by the City of Greater Bendigo and Creative Victoria. Go to Multicultural Arts Victoria.
Regional Centre for Culture
The Regional Centre for Culture is taking place on the country of the Dja Dja Wurrung and Taungurung peoples, whose ancestors and their descendants are the traditional owners of this Country. We acknowledge their living culture and their unique role in the life of the region and as key partners in the program that extends all over the City of Greater Bendigo, Central Goldfields Shire, Hepburn Shire and Mount Alexander Shire throughout 2018.
Raising the profile of local artists
The City of Greater Bendigo and Bendigo and Adelaide Bank are working in partnership to implement a range of creative place making initiatives such as large-scale mural projects, establishment of Exhibit B gallery space and the installation of a digital touchscreen that aims to profile local artists and musicians.
Identifying opportunities to engage with touring performers and artists
We work with touring presenters and facilitate a program of workshops and other engagement opportunities for students and the wider community.
