The Wangaratta Art Gallery with funding from Regional Arts Victoria, the Victorian Government and Commonwealth Government under the Commonwealth-State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) will deliver a tailored creative recovery program for people affected by the 2020 bushfires in the Wangaratta region. In addition to this funding this program has been made possible by the support of Murray PHN Bushfire Recovery Community Wellbeing Program.  The creative recovery program will be delivered over a 12-month period, engaging artists and an arts therapist to support people to recover from the trauma of the bushfires through participation in creative activities. The program is designed to strengthen community connection and engagement, support the emotional and psychological healing of community members, and develop creative problem-solving skills.
