The Kang-o-Meerteek project is about small town transformation, and in the last three months the project management has been transforming too.
The first year of the project was guided by the hard work and creative inspiration of the community, led by Project Manager, Catherine Bailey and administered by Narrawong District Association (NDA). This included community art workshops, history talks, guided walks and many family-friendly events at the Narrawong Hall. It birthed a significant sculpture project for Cart Mountain (Mt Clay), and gave rise to the new Narrawong arts organisation, Cre8ive Narrawong. That’s a lot for a year.
In the second year of the project the administration is moving to local not-for-profit Nature Glenelg Trust (NGT) with Project Manager, Jodie Honan.
We’re excited. The sculpture on Cart Mountain is gradually taking shape, our creative juices are bubbling, and we are keen to have more events with the community.
We have two community walks at Cart Mountain with Wal Saunders in January, and information on further events to come.
In the meantime, check out this video documenting the fabulous first year of the project. It’s a wonderful reminder of all we have achieved (special thanks to Powerhouse Productions for putting it all together).
