Laura has been commissioned by Arts OutWest to represent Central West NSW in the Regional Futures program.
Selected submissions will be turned into paper cut drawings and displayed as a long street in response to the prompt: What does the future look like for your region?
Laura hopes the project "will be an ode to the regional community; a body of work celebrating the unique landscape of our streets as we trace their architectural evolution through the past and towards the future".
The project is part of Regional Futures, a statewide program of creative development and conversations funded by Create NSW.

A VERY special project supported by Arts OutWest with Create NSW Arts Restart funds (2021) has come to fruition.
The Blue Tree Project is a nationwide initiative acknowledging those who've committed suicide.
The non-living tree is a powerful symbol recognising mental health issues that can lead to this.
Portland artist Harrie Fasher constructed a huge metal tree which the community painted blue.
The tree has been erected at Oberon Common and was officially unveiled on May 28.
This is a project of the Oberon Blue Tree Committee supported by Oberon Council, Oberon Arts Council and Arts OutWest.
NINE arts projects across the Central West - which range from film script development to using yarn to make social connections - will share $17,000 in funding from the NSW Government's annual Country Arts Support Program (CASP).

Funded projects in 2022 will be spread across the region. They are:
