About Regional – the podcast, episode two, October 18 2016
About Regional strives to capture the colour, wisdom, and issues of South East NSW, in episode two of the podcast…
* Long time Eurobodalla Council watcher Keith Dance wants to change the way Local Government is elected in NSW.
Having served two terms on Council and contested every election between 2000 and 2010, Keith believes the system encourages too many candidates to stand, which makes it impossible for voters to make an informed choice.
Keith reckons part of the solution comes from Victoria.
* The small Monaro town of Nimmitabel, south-east of Cooma is heading into summer with more water security than every before. A new dam has just opened on the outskirts of town.
Howard Charles and John Alcock are two of the fathers of the Lake Wallace Dam, both were keen to jump the fence and show me around.
* The Archibald Prize has just wrapped up for another year at the Art Gallery of NSW in Sydney.
But these famous faces aren’t being put away, they are hitting the road for a tour of regional NSW and Victoria – including the Bega Valley Regional Gallery.
Gallery Director, Iain Dawson gives us a preview.
And a bush dance to finish with, the Kameruka Bush Orchestra in full flight.
About Regional is a new platform for the stories, ideas and colour of South East NSW.
