Excellence in Community Engagement

2021 Community Radio Awards

Jon Bisset, CEO, CBAA, said, “We congratulate all of our finalists and the hundreds of staff and volunteers that have worked tirelessly on these initiatives. Their entries demonstrated the excellence that community radio strives to achieve. All entries were of a high standard, which made it difficult for our judges! We look forward to announcing our winners throughout December, with our major awards – the Tony Staley Award and Michael Law award – to be announced at our Conference, 22-24 March 2022 in Cairns.”

The Pop-Up Project

Southern Highlands Artists and Creatives

The Pop-Up Project has opened and will go ahead this year for Southern Highlands Artists and Creatives to open their studios to the public this December!

“The Pop-Up Project will give the public a rare opportunity to meet the makers, to see their work in the environment within which it was created and to buy direct from the studio door, perfect timing for Christmas gifts!” said local, Erin Adams.

With the unfortunate cancellation of the Southern Highlands Art Trail, a group of artist and creatives have collaborated to make this event happen. With support from local business owner Erin Adams, more than 20 creatives will be popping up and opening their doors for visitors and locals to have the opportunity to buy direct from local artists.

This is a brand-new event designed to help support local artist and creatives to have the ability to sell direct to public, not just online.

The 2021 Pop-Up Project will run over the weekend of the 4 and 5 December and again the following weekend of the 11 and 12 December. Studios will be open 10am – 4pm or by appointment, direct with each artist.

For information, contact Erin Adams, EA Experience – The Pop-Up Project 0410 617 262.
