GRAS - Gippsland Regional Arts Sale
F.INC has joined forces with GRAS to strengthen the FLOAT impact across Gippsland. We are both small arts organisations committed to a flourishing arts ecology in Gippsland.
F.INC has become renowned for its ‘F’ philosophy – which has forged iconic happenings – such as (f)route and FROUTEVILLE. FROUTELAND. Most notably we continue to attract new young creatives who learn the ropes – then flourish – with their own ideas.
GRAS – Is a not for profit Arts Organisation with a Gippsland focus having conducted several festivals and events including Waterwater Festival in Sale and Golden Moments program at Wellington Entertainment Centre over previous 5 years. Last year partnered with OzOpera to produce "Madame Butterfly" in Yarram using local children from all local schools. With strong connections to local artists through Golden Moments and Sale Theatre Company we are keen to develop strong links with F.INC to share opportunities and mentor local artists.
Together we are able to leverage and strengthen our Gippsland-wide networks. We each have strong relationships with our local and regional art galleries (in Sale and Bairnsdale) – but we love our small communities. Our members have strong ties to Lake Tyers – and have collaborated continually throughout the birth and development of the FLOAT project.
