Presenters who have attended in past years said this about our unique opportunity:
“The direct benefit to us was meeting up with other presenters and understanding our similarities and challenges. The knowledge we brought back to our Centre was very valuable and we have already put into action some of the ideas that were discussed at some of the presentations. I also enjoyed meeting the Country Arts WA team personally. The highlight for me was the variety of speakers and the wealth of knowledge that everyone brought to Showcase.”
-Karina Leonhardt from York Community Resource Centre
The whole event was very inspiring and left me with some good ideas and aspirations for my community. As a newcomer, it was quite fascinating to see what talent is out there and available.
-Christina Laue from Shire of Perenjori
My highlight for the keynote speakers was Annette Carmichael. It was a first for me and loved the whole thing basically. Networking with different producers and artists – seeing what’s out there for my community. And learning and listening to other community presenters with a lot more experience than myself. That was huge. I learnt tips that I will use out in the community when speaking to people, recruiting volunteers and when looking for artists in my community.
