Showing passion for Woolgoolga culture

A TROUPE of artists have banded together to paint the town red and blue and just about any colour under the sun, to boost local cultural arts in Woolgoolga.

The Ecotourism Cultural Arts Action Group (ECAAG), co-ordinated by Art for Being, is a newly formed group who are passionate about Woolgoolga's identity and icons.

Art for Being spokesperson Kristin Erling said public artworks highlight the personality of a town.

“Our local artists have contributed economic value-adding by creating admired contributions of mosaics and sculptures that can be found in towns like Nambucca, Urunga and Coffs Harbour,” Ms Erling said.

“Now Woolgoolga's time has come.”

The ECAAG is looking to raise funds to create local art projects, with their most important project the proposed preservation of the Woolgoolga Raj Mahal elephants.

“Our aim is to contribute valuable public art and showcase and celebrate local talent while keeping the cultural heritage we already have,” Ms Erling said.

“Isn't it time to seek investors to restore and keep the local treasure that is the former Raj Mahal?”

To get involved, contact artforbeing1@gmail.com, call 0422 885 545 or 6654 0818, or come along to a Community Visioning Workshop at Woolgoolga Bowls Club on September 17 at 6.30pm.
