New era in sight for growing Noosa Open Studios

FEEDBACK from this year's Noosa Open Studios has revealed the event was popular amongst locals and visitors.

A survey conducted during 10-day event in August showed all those surveyed were willing to recommend Noosa Open Studios to a friend.

One in four tourists also said they would plan their holiday to Noosa to coincide with the event.

Going forward, Noosa Open Studios is looking for a new president, with current office holder Sarah Therese stepping down at the end of this year.

"Noosa Open Studios is a wonderful event to be involved with, particularly as a relative newcomer to Noosa, as I have been,” Ms Therese said.

"It provides a great opportunity to meet many new people across a diverse range, from local artists, to the media, to people working in our galleries and businesses right throughout Noosa.”
