New Coordinator for RRAC

The Ravensthorpe Regional Arts Council (RRAC) would like to congratulate Rebecca Hillier on securing the role of their Coordinator. Beck will bring much expertise and enthusiasm to the position with her experience with the Hopetoun Dance Group, School of Bop and Arts Qualification.

Beck’s first assignment is participating in Country Arts WAs Artful Leadership for Community Building program after successfully winning a competitive round of applications. The program brings together 15 people from across the Goldfields-Esperance region to work together in an action learning environment, to develop arts and culture leadership projects that promote long lasting personal growth.

Beck is currently learning the ropes with previous Coordinator, Melissa Daw, who will finish a few projects and help Beck with end of year reporting.

Having the capacity to pay for part-time staff to deliver the annual program and undertake administrative duties has been a big step forward for the RRAC as it has resulted in generating more income by way of funding and ensured adherence to the organisation’s governance procedures and record keeping. The RRAC’s reputation as a quality Community Arts organisation has grown tremendously over the past few years having moved up a funding category with Country Arts WA and securing additional funding through the Creative Regions WA scheme. Exciting times are ahead!
