The Festival of Open Minds on Saturday, September 1

Spring in South East NSW starts with a day of ideas and discussion; @about_regional presents – The Festival of Open Minds on Saturday, September 1, 9:30 am to 5 pm at the Bega Civic Centre featuring a line up of incredible speakers including Catherine McGregor, Gabbie Stroud, Linda Burney MP and appearing courtesy of #BVRG Curator, artist and conservator Cash Brown. With over 20 years experience in the cultural sector, Cash Brown comes to the festival having developed audiences through ambitious programs and strategic planning in museums and galleries in New South Wales and regional Victoria. Committed and passionate about cultural organisations and their impact on Australian society, Cash comes with a regional perspective on the need to value and support collecting institutions. She will discuss some of the most urgent issues facing the sector, including economic sustainability and climate change and their impacts on public programs, collection development and care and what the general public can do to assist. For visual artists, Cash will also present a talk on materials and techniques and the implications of those choices on health, environment and how long materials last. Book now via @aboutregional or at South Coast Tickets
