Policy on Regional Arts

Policy on Regional Arts.

Marilyn Nuske Independent Candidate Bendigo West today released her platform for regional arts.

Ms Nuske is keen to see an increase in support for our regional artists.

She is supporting a unique and creative idea to access Wetland areas to host environmentally friendly installation art in the shallows of Regional Victorian Wetlands.

“We have the most beautiful wetlands” Ms Nuske said, “with strong appreciation from bird-watchers, and people who simply enjoy being in the peaceful wetlands” “What is being considered is very much like Andy Goldsworthy’s installations, using natural found materials to create art, will mean the installations “will fall away gracefully over time, leaving no footprint.”

With funding and support of local Councils, suitable Victorian Wetlands could become host for another major tourist drawcard for regional Victoria, a platform for talented regional Victorian artists and a platform for regional environmental art.

The environmental installation art for wetlands has been strongly supported by Lot 19 founder, artists from Castlemaine and arts organisations gearing up for the opening of the Castlemaine State Festival.

Ms Nuske believes funding should be sourced to host environmentally friendly art which could be staged to co-incide with the already famous Castlemaine State Festival, and branch out into other suitable Wetlands across Regional Victoria.

We need to think creatively in these times, and find ways for whole communities to enjoy our peaceful Wetlands throughout the year.

Areas such as the Noosa Biosphere host a bi-annual “Floating Land” environmental art installation and award, which is a major tourist draw card to Noosa on the Sunshine Coast. “We can achieve the same”, said Ms Nuske with a “Floating Wetlands” concept. Its quite an exciting concept”

“Staging similar events at Victorian Wetlands will be a creative, environmentally friendly use of our wetlands that can be enjoyed by locals, regional Victorian Artists, visiting artists and perhaps even from overseas, as well as creating another opportunity to bring tourists to the regions.”

Ms Nuske, herself an Artist studied fine arts at RMIT, and is very understanding of the difficulties facing self employed artists in regional Victoria and the need for greater funding for arts in the regions.

If elected, Ms Nuske will lobby for funding for regional Victorian artists and arts. She is keen to see homage paid to our natural environment, habitat, flora and fauna of the District. Art plays such an important role in our lives, supports many modalities including in the health sector.”

A Vote for Marilyn Nuske Independent Candidate Bendigo West No 1, is a Vote for funding for Regional Victorian Arts.
