Rebecca McDonell joined Bland Shire Council in 2014 as the Community Development Officer soon after completing a social work degree at Charles Sturt University.
She has built an impressive resume of achievements over the last five years including delivery of the first silo art project in NSW at Weethalle and the installation and unveiling of Australia’s biggest football in Ungarie.
She lists both projects among her career highlights as well as the launch of an official Australia Post stamp featuring the Weethalle silos.
Born and bred in Bland Shire, Rebecca loves working with her community on a daily basis.
Rebecca spent three years on the board of Eastern Riverina Arts which has helped her to build relationships and form partnerships within the arts community to deliver a range of initiatives to the Bland Shire.
With a vast appreciation of the value of arts to communities big and small, Rebecca and her colleague Craig Sutton are already busily working on the next big arts project to bring some extra pizzazz to Bland!
