We are so fortunate to have many wonderful cultural and arts precincts here in the Eastern Metropolitan Region. Whether it be from fantastic and vibrant live music venues to art galleries such as Heide Museum of Modern Art as well as the Heidelberg Artist Trail there is a plethora of wonderful cultural activities to enjoy.
Many local artists also call the Eastern Metropolitan Region home and the Andrews Labor Government has been supporting local artists through creative grants and other opportunities to show case their talents. And we know that art can be used to help spread a message of inspiration, making people achieve great things in life. It can be a form of communication between people, to focus on common issues for the betterment of humankind. It can be inspiration, soothing or tell a story. It has never been more important to the arts to be supported locally and you’ll find details of how we are doing that here.
