Surf Coast Arts Inc committee members proudly participated in the Surf Coast Shire's PORTAL sessions. Each Zoom event is recorded and made available to view through the PORTAL Facebook page - where there are also other discussions, recorded studio tours, music and storybook sessions to explore. The videos we've been directly involved in have been collated for this website under LEARN - just to make it all a bit easier to find!
PORTAL is produced by the Surf Coast Shire in response to the Covid-19 Pandemic of 2020. Through June, July and August, PORTAL was developed to keep us connected, creative and collaborating – offering an online space to capture the work of our region’s local creatives and how they are adapting to change.
Due to the success of the 3 month project, funding was secured to continue PORTAL until into the new year. PORTAL SEASON 2 has been handed over to the community to add their voice to the Surf Coast Arts Trail website and social media. To get involved (& we suggest you do!), please contact the Surf Coast Shire Arts Development Officer Harriet Gaffney.

Due to the Victorian Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, the physical version of our new market season unfortunately cannot launch in September 2020 as hoped. So we've created Torquay Cowrie Market Online to showcase and support our fabulous stallholders and musicians!
The Torquay Cowrie Market runs every third Sunday of the month from September through to April. SCA will celebrate our regular market day by sharing info and music through Facebook (in particular) and Instagram until we can get back to some form of normality,
Start exploring! The website provides links to your favourite stallholder and performer websites, online shops, social media and general contacts, where you can purchase items from them directly, learn more about what they do, or ask any questions you may have.
All of these wonderful people are experiencing significant losses due to cancellations relating to the Covid-19 pandemic, so please support them any way you can - especially with Xmas not too far away!
