The City of Bunbury will soon be calling upon the community to share its views about the iconic Bunbury Regional Art Gallery (BRAG).
From Monday 25 February the City will be talking with artists, stakeholders, art enthusiasts and the wider community about the future of the gallery, the role it plays within the community and the gallery’s current governance model.
An online survey will also be open from Monday 25 February until Friday 8 March whilst a series of public forums will be held at the gallery.
An analysis of other regional art galleries will also form part of this exciting review.
Once the review has been completed a report will be presented to Council to provide recommendations to assist the City of Bunbury with making future decisions in relation to BRAG.
Bunbury Deputy Mayor Jaysen Miguel said BRAG was an important community asset and the review would ensure it continued to be so.
“BRAG is currently managed by the City of Bunbury and houses the City’s art collection.
“It also presents a dynamic and ever-changing roster of exhibitions by local artists, as well cutting-edge touring exhibitions from around the country.
“I encourage the community to participate and give its feedback which will then go on to inform future endeavours of the gallery.”
There will be three public forums held on 8 March at 10am to 11am, 2.30pm to 3.30pm and 7pm to 8pm in the Dance Studio at BRAG.
