Two new community art projects will be supported by with the Naracoorte Highland Pipe Band and artist Wayan Dudug receiving funding.

Both projects were approved for a shared $10,000 in funding from the councils fifth round of Council's Community Art Fund at the Local Government meeting in March.

Mr Dudug will use the grant to finish a series of Fossil Boulder sculptures depicting marine fossils of the South East using stone from a local quarry.

The piece will be located somewhere near the Naracoorte Caves although a final location has not yet been decided, but it is recommended that Council place the sculpture at the end of the Caves Trail, to bookend the trail with significant works of art.

The other pieces can be found at the Memorial Parklands and at the Sheep's Back Museum.

The Naracoorte Highland Pipe Band will use the funds to support a collaboration between themselves and and Adelaide theater company Brink Productions to compose, record and locally perform a musical track to be incorporated into a new production 'Vaudeville' to tour regional SA in 2022.

This project connects with Naracoorte's history in a contemporary setting through cultural connections with its Scottish heritage and the Town Hall/Institute building as an historic location for travelling performances.
