Below is an excerpt from the Ravensthorpe Progress Association's successful nomination of The Ravensthorpe Regional Arts Council for a 2014 Australia Day Award.
The Ravensthorpe Regional Arts Council continue to deliver a range of quality arts and cultural activities that engage, excite and bring together families and communities.
2013 has been a particularly exciting year, with the RRAC offering a challenging and diverse program of events, presenting new experiences in unique locations. Whilst there have been a number of musical, dance and staged performances brought in for our enjoyment, it was the locally produced events, which had a significant impact both here and in outlying regions. These events demanded long hours of planning and much hard work, enthusiasm and commitment, by the RRAC members, to bring to fruition.
