Generator Series

In 2010 Council introduced its Generator Series.   A series of community workshops and activities to inform the development of it Community and Cultural Plan.  

Three forums were held during October and November focussing specifically on visual and performing arts in the  community. Practitioners and related organisations attended and contributed their ideas for the creative future of the Leichhardt.
