The latest step towards reactivation of the Warracknabeal Court House took place on
Friday 25 May 2019.


Working Heritage, in partnership with Monash University Art Design & Architecture and Creative Victoria, hosted a community film night at the court house and grounds. Attendees and participants were welocmed to country with a smoking ceremony hosted by Wergaia Elder, Uncle Ron Marks. Black Betti and Co, a new local business, provided refreshments and grazing platters.


Attendees were invited to offer their opinions and suggestions on the proposed plans for the court house being transformed into an artist-in-residence facility which would incorporate living and working spaces. The short film, 'After Warracknabeal' was screened for attendees from around the district who were also able to participate in a  stargazing session led by Monash University Astronomers. 


Working Heritage hopes to commence the pilot artis-in-residence program in late 2019.
