The Shire of Carnarvon is delighted to share the news of receiving a $10,000 grant from the Department of Communities for the Beautiful Streets: 6701 – Aboriginal Women’s Placemaking & Art Project. This project, a part of the Women’s Grants for a Stronger Future 2023 Grants Program, will be facilitated through the Community Art Hub.
This funding aims to empower Aboriginal women by nurturing their artistic skills, leading to the creation of public art installations, including painted pots and window skins on vacant shops. These installations will not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of Carnarvon streets but also contribute to reducing youth and public asset crime.
Andrea Selvey, Shire CEO, expressed her enthusiasm for the project, stating, “This grant is a significant investment in our community's efforts to beautify our streets, fostering a sense of pride.” The Shire of Carnarvon remains dedicated to cultivating a safe, harmonious community with a thriving economy. This funding represents a pivotal step towards realising the vision outlined in our Strategic Community Plan."
