Community Led Art Project (CLAP)

About the project

The Wooroloo Bushfire Community Recovery and Outreach Program seeks to ensure that residents in need, and the wider Wooroloo community, have local access to support services and resilience building activities.   

The purpose of the Program is to build capacity, sustainability and resilience within the community, it is funded under the Commonwealth-State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements.

In line with the objectives of the Community Recovery and Outreach Program this proposal supports Objective 2.1.4: “the community has opportunities for creative expression that help the community recover from disaster”.

The Wooroloo Bushfire Community Led Art Project was proposed by a group of community members under this program.  Wooroloo residents were asked to submit ideas for activities that they would like to see undertaken in the town. Twenty-nine people expressed an interest in participating in an art project. 

In the first instance the focus is to collect photographs, and the associated stories, from community members with the proposal being to host an exhibition. From there the project will grow, in line with community ideas.
