Opportunity for a significant sculpture for Echunga
Battunga-Country Tourism extends an invitation to apply for the 2014 Adelaide Hills International Sculpture Symposium (AHISS) for a sculpture for Echunga. A sculpture will enrich the town and boost the local economy by putting Echunga on the sculpture trail linking all AHISS sculptures. Donations are tax deductible and there is financial assistance available from Battunga-Country Tourism for Echunga to assist in the purchase of a sculpture.
However, because of likely competition for this funding assistance, the preferencing of Echunga will expire end of April 2013 unless Battunga- Country Tourism is notified of a clear interest in this project.
Please contact Battunga-Country Tourism phone Dave 0419838742 for details about the assistance available.
