An online survey will help investigate the feasibility of an art gallery in Echuca-Moama.

In 2010, the Echuca-Moama Arts Initiative convened an arts space sub-committee to better understand the needs of the local artistic community and to oversee investigation of gallery options.

With the support of Regional Development Victoria and Campaspe and Murray Shire Councils, EMAI commissioned consultants Wendy Dunstan and Lesley Humphreys to undertake a feasibility study and business plan.

The online survey will provide important data to help understand the feasibility of an arts space.

EMAI chairperson Anne Mawson encouraged the community to complete the survey.

‘‘We know from EMAI’s previous work that lack of facilities is really limiting the arts activity that can happen in the region and that this is having a detrimental effect on Echuca-Moama’s cultural and economic life,’’ she said.

‘‘We know that the demand for an arts space is out there, we just need to build a compelling business case around clear evidence that a facility like this can work for the artists, the arts consuming public and the economic development of the region.’’

Submissions close on March 6 at 5pm.

Written comments can also be submitted to Wendy Dunstan, at 5 Lindsay Avenue, Elwood, 3184.

For information, contact Wendy Dunstan on 0412206464.
