Gai-mariagal Festival

Council will host a number of events to celebrate Gai-mariagal Festival and NAIDOC Week until Sunday 11 July.

Dine & Discover

Mosman residents are able to use their Dine & Discover NSW vouchers at participating businesses until 30 June.

The NSW government initiative provides everyone over the age of 18 with $100 in vouchers to spend with local businesses and services and can be used seven days a week.

Residents can register via the ServiceNSW app or online at https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/ using two ID documents to apply for the four $25 vouchers.

More than 50 Mosman-based businesses are participating in the scheme, which builds on Council’s ongoing support of the Mosman Chamber of Commerce’s successful Think Mosman First local shopping campaign.

Wellness and Wholefood Workshop

Wholefood chef Sue Lambert will host an online workshop on the benefits of eating nutrient-dense wholefoods to help participants thrive and survive during the winter months.

Sue, who is also an educator and real food advocate, will be sharing her knowledge and experience on the role food plays in maintaining good gut health, immune-boosting foods for winter, the importance of eating seasonal foods and nutrient-dense spices, seasoning and sprinkles.

Recipes will be emailed to all participants at the online workshop, which will be held from 6pm to 7pm on Thursday 10 June. To register visit events.mosman.nsw.gov.au.

Support Art Explorers

Mosman businesses and residents are invited to support Art Explorers, a free public education program supporting the early introduction of art experiences for Mosman Art Gallery’s youngest visitors.

The 90-minute interactive art-making activity program for children aged three to five years and their parents, grandparents or carers, is held once a month in the gallery to complement the changing exhibitions and is led by a qualified art educator.

By contributing directly to the costs associated with Art Explorers an annual fully tax-deductible donation of $200 to $500 will maintain the free education program for Mosman’s youngest creatives, with supporters acknowledged on Mosman Art Gallery’s website, its e-newsletter and in the ‘What’s On’ printed brochure.

For further information please contact the gallery’s Philanthropy Officer Ann Shoebridge on 9978 4164 or email a.shoebridge@mosman.nsw.gov.au
