Arts & Culture

Find Your Perspective.

There’s a rumour that we’re not a very “artsy” place. Good thing it’s just a rumour. Galleries, theatre groups, nostalgia museums, sculpture festivals and indigenous performances just brush the surface of a cultural canvas that goes far deeper. As they say – art is purely a matter of perspective after all.
