The 2017 Outback Arts board was announced last week when Outback Arts held its Annual General Meeting at the Coonamble Shire Council Chambers.
Elected to Chairperson was Cobar local and maker Kylie Harvey who stood as an independent representative. You can find her recipes in the cooking section of the new Far West Living magazine, as well as a solid online following for her creations as ‘Indigo and Quince’.
Sally Torr, community representative and familiar face on the board was elected to the role of Vice-President. Re-elected to Treasurer was Warren Shire Representative Pauline Serdity. We are also welcoming John Thompson to the team as the new Bourke Shire Delegate.
We are happy to see members staying on from 2016 including Angela Shepherd (Cobar Shire Council), John Walker (Coonamble Shire Council), and Jane Keir (Walgett Shire Council).
Bringing forth new energy and purpose to the board is first time member Eric Crisp from Warren who will step forward as the third community representative.
We are looking forward to the year and exciting projects ahead under the skilled and valuable guidance of our 2017 board.
