Local Leaders | Southern Tablelands Arts: How have bush fires affected the artistic community?

Southern Tablelands Arts is committed to supporting our communities beyond the devastation of the recent bushfires that have impacted so many lives.

If you or someone you know is a professional artist, creative business, cultural organisation, museum, gallery or collective living and working in the Southern Tablelands Arts region we want to know how the recent bushfire threat has impacted you.

Through our Bushfire Impact Survey, we would like you to tell us about your personal, school, arts organisation and/or community's needs in relation to workshops, projects and arts education, as well as financial and mental health assistance requirements.

Please note this is not an offer of direct assistance, more an effort to understand what is needed in the region.

Your personal information and responses will remain confidential.

The answers we receive in this survey will help us to better understand the social, economic, physical and emotional impacts of the bushfires.

We understand that the situation and threat is not over for many and hope that the information you provide will help us and other agencies to assist you on your road to recovery.

Southern Tablelands Arts values the importance of the arts to the very fabric of our community.

Our survey can be found at www.southerntablelandsarts.com.au.
