“This is a valuable course that many local government authorities could benefit from.” – Participant from the Augusta-Margaret River Shire
“The Creative Leadership Program has added value to the skills I already had and boost confidence in areas of being more leaderful in my community.” – Participant from Geraldton workshop
“I am grateful that you saw this as an important program and introduced it to the community. As an artist I sometimes feel like I am out on the periphery and not connected. I made a conscious decision to seek out ways to change this and give myself the opportunity to become more engaged. The program was good for me.” – Participant from Busselton workshop
