Regional Arts Victoria’s CEO Lindy Allen remarked that, ‘Professional Development in the arts for young people in regional areas is essential if we are to find and support tomorrow’s cultural leaders. We’re delighted that this program will provide comprehensive experience for young people interested in working in the arts, and hope that they will take these skills back to their communities, providing long-term investment in the future’.
