Dumbleyung Arts Space Survey
The shire is in the process of establishing the Dumbleyung Arts Space. We would like community members to take the time to fill out the short survey (link below) to give us a better understanding of the community members interested in arts and craft.
The Dumbleyung Arts Space will be a space for people in a social setting and to construct and complete their art projects. The Arts Space will be located in the Absolon Street shop (previously occupied by the mosaics). The aim of the Arts Space is to encourage community members to have a place to come along and bring their art or craft of any shape or size to complete in the one location. This Shire run initiative would be in place to offer a facility for the community members to use and socialise with other people in the community that may share the same interest.
