Great news!  Thames Coromandel District Council has adopted the Coromandel Arts and Creative Industries Strategy.  This is a landmark for the arts and artists in the District, with the arts being recognised for the important social, cultural and economic role they play on the Peninsula.  A Peninsula Arts Board is to be formed once the new Community Boards are in place after the October 2016 elections, with two representatives from each ward on the Board.  Watch this space for more news.  

Please sign up to receive our e-newsletter so we can keep you up-to-date with all the detail of CMB's and other arts and culture organisations' current and forthcoming events.
