The Bayside Arts and Gallery Advisory Committee’s purpose is to provide advice and support to Council in the development and presentation of an innovative and creative arts program for the City of Bayside including exhibitions and programs at the Bayside Gallery.
The Committee’s guiding document is the Bayside Arts Strategic Plan 2018-2022 which aims to connect people to each other and their community through the celebration of art and the sharing of ideas.
Art can connect diverse groups of people across a variety of ages, ethnicity, and backgrounds. Delivery of the Strategic Plan ensures that the exhibitions and events developed by Council staff speak to Bayside’s unique sense of place and provide opportunities for people to connect with creativity and ideas across Bayside.
The Bayside Arts Strategic Plan 2018-2022 captures both the aspirations of the Bayside Arts and Gallery Advisory Committee in relation to developing an arts program for Bayside and community expectations of Council.
L to R front: Bayside Arts and Gallery Advisory Committee members Sarah Morris, Cr Alex del Porto (Deputy Chair) and Brian Hewitt.
Standing: David Wood, artist ‘Spirit of Place’ 2021 Elsternwick Park South.
