A new partnership between Ravensthorpe Regional Arts Council (RRAC) and Euphorium Creative in Geraldton promises to work with and complement local artists in the field of performing arts to Hopetoun and surrounding regions.

The Ringleader of Euphorium Creative, Julian Canny hopes that by the two organisations working together, RRAC will secure future opportunities from state bodies and foster more connections for the region.

“If we can work with RRAC to assist in delivering more value for the community through arts programming and producing, it will not only increase the resources of the community but also help leverage more opportunities in the future,” said Canny.

“We are excited to work as a team to upskill our programming and business operational trading as well as opening up links for inter-regional exchange of artists”, said Canny.

Julian Canny, along with fellow coworker Kirsty Kipling made the 950 km trip from Geraldton to Hopetoun this month with specific projects in mind.

“I am so glad i got the opportunity to visit Hopetoun and Ravensthorpe. These are two very beautiful communities that we are excited to be working with, in partnership with RRAC”, said Kirsty Kipling, Marketing Director at Euphorium Creative.

Euphorium Creative and RRAC will be presenting three comedy galas in Ravensthorpe, Hopetoun and Jerdacuttup later in the year thanks to the “Raise The Roof” Programing fund. This is a great opportunity for residents in the neighbouring regions and their communities as a whole. Get ready for a huge lineup of international, national and local acts.

This is also great news for Geraldton as we can now offer greater opportunities to our local artists, including the chance to travel and perform statewide.

There is lots of planning in progress as both regional organisations continue to cement their partnership and bring great opportunities to the people in their communities.
