New Board for Wilcannia Arts

Eddie Harris commenced the role of Aboriginal Arts Enterprise Development Officer for the Wilcannia Arts program in early January this year.   James Giddey from West Darling Arts has been guiding Eddie in setting up the program and is extremely keen to see arts programs up and running again in Wilcannia. James represents West Darling Arts as the auspice body for the 2 year grant.

One of Eddie first jobs has been to establish a Board who will oversee the program. The Board is:
Colin Clark—Chair
Dale Woods —Deputy Chair/treasurer
Chris Elliott—Secretary
Kevin (Cat) Cattermole
Dave Curry.

At their first meeting it was decided that the first priority was to get the building, the old Methodist Church Hall, up to a suitable standard.
