Great Opportunity – Tell Your Story 16-22 Year Olds

Indi is full of fantastic stories and talented young people to tell them. ABC Heywire launched this week and you can help keep putting Indi on the map by telling a local story in a creative way about your community. Heywire is for 16-22 year olds, and a great platform for young people with a gift for story-telling and production.

Tell your story and win a free trip to the Heywire Regional Youth Summit in Canberra in February 2017. Winners will work with ABC producers and stories will feature on radio, online and TV.

 Visit for information about this great opportunity.

Barnawartha netballer Olivia Carmody was a 2014 winner and you can hear her story online. Her story is a great insight into being part of a country sporting club, and its importance to the local community.

Love Your Wetlands Exhibition and Invitation


The Goulburn And North East Arts Alliance (GANEAA), Swanpool Cinema, and the Friends of Winton Wetlands have worked together to bring a great afternoon at the Swanpool Cinema on Saturday, May the 7th from 2-5pm.

It’s called ‘Love Your Wetlands’ and follows on from a number of workshops they’ve held at Winton Wetlands. Over 25 regional artists have responded to the theme with art on display including painting, sculpture, textiles, photography, live performance, a guest speaker (Dennis O’Brien, Winton Wetlands Chair) as well as some local short films.

The feature film ‘Tarkine in Motion’ will then follow, produced by the Bob Brown Foundation. We’ve worked hard to put it all together and hope you can join us. See the flyer attached.

Starring multi-award winning drag queen Kaye Sera. Kaye’s quirky cabarets have enjoyed phenomenal success at Melbourne arts festivals. Kaye is one of the few drag acts who sings live and will be performing in Wangaratta accompanied by a talented local pianist. Despite living a high maintenance, glamorous lifestyle Kaye is ardently concerned about the state of the nation and will be entertaining her audience with a number songs peppered with political satire. Laughter is the best tonic for a country already in “election mode”

Adding to the comedy will be notorious improvisational theatre group “The Coal Diggers” .Finally Beechworth based singer/songwriter Marisa Quigley will round out the night and raise the roof with her on stage charisma and heart-felt songs.

Ticket buyers can add to the social nature of the night by bringing their own nibbles to share with friends. Drinks will be at bar prices.
