Bush Gatherings is a plant nursery, an art space, and an innovative consultancy and community facilitation service based in North East Victoria.
Our business premises is in a historical cottage and is in an easily accessible and visible location in the community. Wishing to create an opportunity in the community we are proud to share our space.
The art space is one large room, painted white, with large old windows. It has its own entrance and opens out onto a covered outside verandah. The floor is wood and there are removable down lights if required. There is a large table and piano in the space. These can be moved or remain as required.
We do not have a commercial kitchen nor an alcohol licence but we can plan for food vans and licensed wineries or breweries as required.
If required, a workshop space can also be provided and workshops can be supported as needed.
It is not our intention to charge for the use of the gallery space or a commission, we just love the beautiful history and character of the room, as well as being passionate about visual and performing arts and believe that the space is well suited as a small intimate venue.
The consultancy service is an extension of the work Andie Guerin and Annette Walton have been doing for a long time. bush gatherings offer a responsive and complete service designed to achieve positive outcomes. With a proven track record, we understand how to create an environment where all stakeholders are engaged, build collaborative relationships, deal with complex issues and problems positively and proactively, deal with effective decision making and appropriate action.
