About Echuca Moama Arts Initiative Inc. (EMAI)
The Echuca Moama Arts Initiative (EMAI) was established in October 2010.

EMAI is a community group that began as a result of the Echuca/Moama District Planning Process of which Arts and Culture was identified as one of five key categories. 

At a well-attended public meeting, a broad cross section of the arts community participated in energetic discussions that identified clear and common objectives. A committed band of members began meeting to bring several goals to fruition. These included, securing a suitable space for exhibitions, workshops and performances; developing a network of artisans and arts enthusiasts and raising the profile of the Arts in our region.

Through partnership with the Shire of Campaspe, EMAI was able to secure an exhibition venue at the former Customs House building in the Port of Echuca. This opportunity of presence and hard work saw EMAI become a highly valued community group directly within Echuca Moama and beyond.

In 2015 EMAI relocated to the ‘Old Freeman’s Foundry’ Building on Murray Esplanade and opened The Foundry Arts Space.

Today EMAI continues to investigate sources of funding and a wide variety of exciting projects and exhibitions for the future.

By joining EMAI’s arts network, we can help keep you informed about the arts activities in our region through our newsletter and website. Becoming a financial member of EMAI will help provide monetary support to the group and ensure it can continue to grow and achieve its goals.

Membership will allow you to contribute to how the arts and culture of the community are developed, supported and promoted in the area.

If you are involved in an arts related group (book club, singing group, art group, theatre etc.) that could use wider support. Contact us to find out how we can assist you.
