The pilot of Penrith City Council’s Magnetic Places Community Cultural Grants Program 2007/08 has seen the development of 8 innovative projects in partnership with local residents, which celebrate culture and pride in established neighbourhoods across the Penrith Local Government Area.
The initiative aims to generate activities, events and programs that encourage and enhance local usage and activation of community meeting places.
In 2007/08 activities and programs with a community cultural, arts or fringe element that enhance local usage and activation of community meeting places, have been encouraged. A range of projects which build on locally identified strengths and issues, that have involvement from local residents, are community led, demonstrate strong partnerships within the community, and utilise creative processes have developed.
The 2007/08 projects are:
1. Kingswood Park Has Talent
2. Llandilo Multicultural Footprints
3. Isabel Stage 2
4. Talking Tree Project
5. 100 Years of International Women’s Day Celebrations
6. Cranebrook Rhythm & Drumming Group
7. Celebrating St Marys Area Families & Community Project
8. Mainstreaming Marginalized Filipino Australian Artists
