Regional Centre of Culture – Just Add Water 2012 Community Impact Report

Independent Consultant Dr Christine Putland has delivered an extensive evaluation report demonstrating the profound impact Just Add Water has made on the community of Goolwa.

It is a testament to everyone involved – artists, arts companies (both from within the community and without) and to the local community of 6000 people who racked up over 53,000 appearances between them – and proof, if any was needed, when a community chooses to embrace arts as a part of daily life.


To find out what happens when one regional South Australian community stages 443 arts events in one year, you have several options.
