Foundation Barossa is pleased to report the establishment of the Peter Lehmann Arts and Education Trust is progressing since it was originally developed in 2014.
The Trust will provide support for arts and education initiatives in the Barossa region that contribute to the cultural fabric of the region and involve the development of arts and music programs. An annual award will be presented to an individual or group recipient to deliver a project that preserves and promotes the heritage of the Barossa through the development of skills and the creation and presentation of new artwork in any medium including visual arts, music, theatre, digital works and literature.
The Peter Lehmann Arts And Education Award is designed to increase arts and cultural learning opportunities and increase access to the arts for local residents and visitors to the region.
Initial funds to establish the Trust have been provided by the David Thomas Foundation, Margaret Lehmann and other community members who generously committed funds. Further fundraising activities are in development to ensure the Trust continues to grow and greater support can be provided for arts and cultural activities in the Barossa Region. Foundation Barossa is overseeing the administration of the Peter Lehmann Arts and Education Trust with an Advisory Committee established, which includes members of the Lehmann family; Margaret, Phil and David Lehmann, Foundation Barossa Board Member, Lesley Ann Grimoldby and Arts and Cultural Adviser Maz McGann.
