Creative Mercury Bay salutes TCDC's adoption of a District Arts Strategy and the formation of the Coromandel Arts and Creative Industries Advisory Board. We are especially proud as CMB's Chair, Jan Wright, has been selected to lead this Advisory Board which is made up of representatives from across the Peninsula and Tangata Whenua, to bring about a coordinated approach to arts collaboration and support the development of action plans across the Peninsula. CMB looks forward to supporting this initiative.
