Autumn Edition 2013

Welcome to the Autumn Edition and  the 2013  Year of  Water Snake which according to Chinese belief means steady progress, attention to detail, focus and discipline will be necessary to achieve what you set out to create. 

Bearing this in mind, Slippry Sirkus has just spent the past three months in close consultation with communities and organisations across the North West and Far West New South Wales to ensure meaningful and productive  partnerships for  the three year Australia Council of the Arts Creative Partnerships Initiative.

The Regional Arts Fund has provided funding for exploring the theme of identity and culture while providing skills training, an outcome of this project will be produced for  the Walgett Community Festival in August.
