The Shire will follow guidance from the State Government to ensure community safety and keep the pandemic curve flat. This means many of our services will continue to operate differently throughout 2020.
The Shire’s main priority is to keep our community safe, and only services that can adhere to the physical distancing guidelines and number limits will open at this stage.
In the interests of public safety, Mornington Peninsula Shire has temporarily suspended non-essential services, programs, events & activities. Among these are a range of arts and cultural programs that were planned for the coming months. These include targeted professional development events, community liaison and public art projects. To help lessen the sense of isolation we are all currently facing, we aim to bring a number of these initiatives online over the coming weeks and months. A range of resources, stories, activities and events will be available on this website and updated regularly for our community to participate in online.
During this challenging time, we will advocate for and support the Mornington Peninsula creative and cultural sector and encourage the sector to keep creating and finding ways to create, research, develop, present and inspire. We will continue to connect with you, stakeholders and audiences and strive to inform, learn, adapt and communicate.
If you are a Mornington Peninsula-based artist, musician, maker, designer, craftsperson, arts company, arts organisation or creative business that would like to share or collaborate on resources, events or activities, please get in touch with us via the contact us page.
