GTM Grooves With Oakbank Community Programs

15 February 2016 | 5:57 pm | Staff Writer

The festival is teaming up again with Mt Barker RSL and more.

In the words of co-promoter Stephen Halpin, "Groovin The Moo has always put considerable significance in engaging in various community programs around the country."

The short and sweet of which is that when GTM hits your town it's not just passing through. In Oakbank, for starters, the festival is teaming up again with Mt Barker RSL to maintain and remember the ANZAC spirit throughout the weekend. Music SA, Adelaide Hills Vocational College and Mt Barker High School are set to run Short Internship Placements in the lead-up to the event — a chance for local event management students to get hands-on experience with industry professionals.

The festival also puts a big focus on local art, with AHVC bringing back their street art skills for the GTM Scrim Art Project as well as demonstrating their talent for the nation-wide Live Art @ GTM event, while Sister Cities Art Project will be working in conjunction with Tania Kunze and Rebecca Prince to mentor 12 young artists.

Ink Pot Arts are kicking off the celebrations and Cobbley's Cider Co has even signed up to make sure you've got something some quality Scrumpy to sip.
