Latest news from Cr Symon


As Chair of the Maroondah Arts Advisory Committee, I am very proud of the quality and diversity of arts and cultural venues we have across the municipality.

Our gallery at Maroondah Federation Estate has been enjoyed by thousands of residents each year since it opened in 2001. It has presented a cross-section of artworks, including the Maroondah City Council Art Collection and artworks by community groups, and established contemporary and traditional artists.

We are excited to announce that in 2019 we will be renaming the gallery. It will be known as Maroondah Federation Estate Gallery. This change gives the gallery a geographical location, and references the gallery’s opening, on the 100th Anniversary of Federation. It also more closely reflects the diverse breadth of programs and experiences that we offer, and will continue to create for the community.

Please look out for our exciting program for Maroondah Federation Estate Gallery in 2019.
