Carnarvon Regional Library and Art Gallery are pleased to provide its support to a mentorship agreement that will facilitate a collaboration between local artists, arts organisations and service providers. The pilot program will provide opportunities for building community capacity and cohesion, helping communities explore their cultural identity through a celebration of regional arts achievement.

Raymond Edney has been selected to participate in the Creative Grid Project in Carnarvon. Over the coming months, Raymond will produce new work for his debut solo exhibition to be held at the Carnarvon Library Art Gallery in June. Recognised artist Sue Helmot will partner with Raymond as his mentor throughout the project. Sue will draw on her experience and knowledge as a professional, full-time artist and resident artist for the Gascoyne Food Council.

Made possible through the support of the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC) in collaboration with Country Arts WA and the Regional Arts Partnership Program, this project is overseen by Southern Forest Arts. This co-created project includes both regional and Perth-based arts organisations in support of the WA regional visual arts sector. Known as the Creative Grid, this network of artists and arts supporters seek to uncover and encourage the unique potential of each participating artist. The Library Art Gallery are pleased to provide administrative and venue support for this project that is hoped to enhance the economic and cultural vibrancy of the region.
