On 29th October 1986 a large Arts Festival was held in the Community Library in the grounds of the Queen Mary Hospital, Hanmer Springs. It was a great success and led to a long string of concerts and touring events hosted by ACAC.
If you are considering holding an Arts Event in the Amuri area ask us if it could be eligible for ACAC funding.
