Parkes has been picked for the annual general meeting of the regional arts development organisation of Central NSW, Arts OutWest, this year.
Arts OutWest have teamed up with Parkes Shire Council to showcase creatives from the region some of the arts and cultural success stories, plans and infrastructure of our town.
The meeting will be held on Sunday, 28th May and start at 11.30am with a tour of the Parkes Library, hearing about the planned expansion and a viewing of the current exhibition. This will be followed by a tour of the Little Theatre and a short performance by Parkes M&D Society from their latest production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, which opens tomorrow night.
The program for the day includes a free lunch in the Hart Bar at the Railway Hotel.
After lunch and the formal meeting, which will include a pictorial of Arts OutWest’s activities throughout 2016, there will be a tour of local street art and a visit to local museums.
“Everyone is welcome to come along, we’d love to see familiar faces and like- wise meet people who just want to know more about what their regional arts organisation does,” Arts OutWest executive di- rector, Tracey Callinan said.
“The formal meeting aspect of our AGMs are always short. We really use our AGM as a chance to showcase the arts and cultural scene in a particular local gov- ernment area. This year it’s Parkes’ turn” Tracey said.
“We’re even running a bus to Parkes for those who can’t make the drive out there – leaving from Bathurst and stopping in Orange on the way.”

The mission of Arts OutWest is to pro- mote, facilitate, educate and advocate for arts and cultural development for communities of the NSW Central West.
