A little of our history...

Since its formation in 1991, Four Winds has had high aspirations:

Four Winds’ purpose set out in 1991:

To promote the performing arts at the highest artistic level and to organise functions for performance for the benefit of residents and visitors to our area.

Our commitment to our community: 

As a voluntary Board in a small regional community, we are dedicated to maintaining our reputation for delivering high quality arts experiences, and to provide a range of ways of connecting with our communities through programmes which are popular, inviting and accessible.

The Four Pillars which are the foundation of Four Winds: 

The place - inspired by and celebrating nature & its beauty, creating a sense of belonging through the program interpreted around the site and our area.
People and community - we value relationships by making people feel welcome to our community while increasing our local audience. We are active in developing the role of culture as an asset in our region - local and beyond.
Music and performing arts – we focus on fine music of all kinds, with a balance between the new and familiar classical, appropriate to the Four Winds site and our core audience. We encourage elements of magic and the unexpected that both comfort and challenge.
Outreach through arts and education - provide a way of taking great quality music to the schools and community in our region, through an interactive creative process leading to students contributing to the development of the arts. We encourage a love of music and the arts.
