Echuca Moama Arts Initiative

The Foundry Arts Space was opened in December 2015 by the Echuca Moama Arts Initiative (EMAI). 

The Foundry Arts Space is situated on the edge of the Murray River in the popular, historic Port of Echuca and is a unique gallery, workshop and performance venue operating out of the old Freeman’s Foundry which stands on the site of the original Hopwood’s Store, one of the first buildings in Echuca.

South West Music

Live music is an important part of our local arts and culture and SWM want to make sure it is accessible to everyone. Their free concerts bring world standard music to everyone in our community. Visit the SWM website for information on upcoming performances.

Outback Theatre for Young People

Outback Theatre for Young People engages with young people from regional and remote communities to create distinctive contemporary theatre through collaborative processes.

Outback Theatre for Young People (OTYP) is dedicated to creating innovative, participant-owned youth theatre. They engage young people, aged 4 to 26 years, from throughout South West NSW, in collaborative, generative theatre projects that celebrate their lives and their aspirations. OTYP works with an Artistic Directorate model where a small group of Artistic Directors work across our region, supported by a Creative Producer. Each project is designed for and shaped by the participants, with two stages over two years in order to develop sustainable arts practice in our communities.
