Artists' Craft and Tea

Someone once said, "the arts are the best insurance policy a city can take on itself." The City of Palmerston is all about resilient community with their new plan for fostering the arts, including a space for local artists to meet and work. 

The Palmerston Arts Strategy 2016-2021 paves the way toward a more creative and engaged city. Developing the arts is vital according to Mayor Ian Abbott.

“The creative and cultural life of Palmerston is a very important part of the future of this growing and dynamic city. Artists are vital to the lifeblood of our community,” he said.

2017 kicks off with the inaugural Artists' Craft and Tea program. Artists of all skill levels and mediums are invited to use the space at the brand new Durack Community Centre. Bring a plate and get to know fellow creatives over a cuppa. Check out the Centre including its multi-functional workshop, storage spaces and kitchen, with plans in the wings to include office and exhibition space.

If you have an idea for an art class or cultural activity, artists are encouraged to contact Council with proposals – they’re keen to get the vision of a flourishing arts and cultural scene underway. The future for the arts in these parts is looking bright indeed.
