TRA is happy to announce that the Peter Matthews statewide consultation program has been a huge success.
Peter has traveled to over nineteen locations, meeting with over 22 TRA Branches, affiliated organisations and other members of our regional communities. Four public meetings were also held in Hobart, Launceston, Latrobe and Burnie.
Over 200 people turned out to either individual or group sessions over the past twelve days - demonstrating the level of commitment to TRA and the interest in having a say in the future of the organisation.

The Older, Wiser and connected onLine (OWL) program provided workshops designed to show how social media can be a useful tool to promote regional arts activities. TRA delivered these workshops in seven locations statewide covering commonly used social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
Throughout the workshops, participants learned how to use commonly used features of social media and developed ways to promote local arts and cultural activities.
A public report on the OWL project will be available early in 2014.
