Who We Are

The Cygnet Community Arts Council

Our purpose is to support, facilitate and inspire the Arts in all its forms within our community. Our particular focus is on the creation of art within and by the community itself.

We recognise the importance of the Arts as a major and inclusive conduit of community cultural development, of individual, and community health and wellbeing. We collaborate with other groups across the community, support local  artists where possible and bring professional artists into the community to teach and mentor.

The Cygnet Community Arts Council (CCAC) is organised by a committee as an incorporated body, raising funds through both fundraising events and projects as well as regional grants.

We facilitate touring exhibitions & performances, and support local groups where possible with small cash inputs as well as creating a number of arts based community events during the year.

Supported Cultural Groups

The CCAC supports a range of Cultural groups which provide community development, skillsharing and life learning experiences to the residents and temporary population of Cygnet each year. 2021 includes TaKeTiNa and the Cygnet Choir as core activities to the year’s program.

TaKeTiNa

TaKeTiNa is a group learning process which leads participants into states of relaxation, inner presence, and awareness, as patterns of rhythm are layered into our bodies by simple stepping, clapping and singing. It’s a moving meditation practice which is nurturing , fun and collaborative. 

Regular sessions starting again in  late March -info 0400614067

TaKeTiNa requires no musical experience and invites participants to go at their own pace.Info www.taketina.com

Special Events

The Cygnet Community Arts Council sponsors special arts events in music, theatre, workshops and short courses. The CCAC is proud to Support upcoming event “White Rabbit Red Rabbit”

With no rehearsal, no director, and a script waiting in a sealed envelope on stage, internationally acclaimed “White Rabbit, Red Rabbit” by Iranian writer Nassim Soleimanpour, is an audacious theatrical experiment and a potent reminder of the transgressive and transformative power of theatre.
