Regional Arts Victoria welcomes Tim Dakin to the role of Creative Arts Facilitator, based in Wellington, as Deb Milligan leaves the organisation after ten years to pursue her creative practice.
 
"Our long-term partnership with Wellington Shire is critical to Regional Arts Victoria's ability to offer programs relevant to the local arts community," said Regional Arts Victoria’s Director, Esther Anatolitis. "We're so thrilled to have found someone of Tim's experience for this important facilitative role."

Tim Dakin has been working in community development and the arts for over 20 years. He has a BA in Performance Studies (Theatre and Dance) and has spent his working life in not-for-profit organisations and local government.

Tim has previously worked with Frankston Arts Centre to increase access to the arts for audiences, artists and arts workers, and with Arts Access Victoria coordinating disability awareness training and supporting artists with disability on career pathways.

Tim is passionate about connecting his community, working with volunteers and supporting artists to create amazing work.

After owning a home in Briagolong for 17 years, Tim is looking forward to re-connecting with the Gippsland community through his new role as Creative Arts Facilitator. Tim hopes to continue the legacy of previous Wellington Creative Arts Facilitator Deb Milligan and bring new skills, ideas and connections to Regional Arts Victoria's members and the wider community.

Tim formally begins in the role of Creative Arts Facilitator, Wellington on Monday 18 July 2016.
