Castlemaine Art online directory for creative community

Council is working in partnership with We Push Buttons web designers to develop a free online arts directory called Castlemaine Art for the artists, arts organisations, venues and creative businesses.

The online directory will be officially launched on Thursday 4 December at 4.00pm at the Public Inn in Castlemaine.

The launch of the website will be a part of an Arts sector gathering, and artists and creative businesses are welcome to attend. The function is a catered event so please RSVP to

The directory at will become the creative online directory for Mount Alexander Shire artists.

The new website boasts some great functions to promote and profile the arts from this part of the world.

It includes enhanced functionality for artists including personal urls, google maps embedded in each profile page, and optimised google search functionality.

Local artists and organisations will have a unique profile page which they can use to profile their work, upload images, text, video and link to external or existing websites.

Castlemaine Art replaces previous artist directories that have been available through Council’s website. The directory will allow people to be able to search by name, profession, location, niche and interests.

About Rob Jennings

When he found himself embroiled in a conversation with someone talking about their ‘customer-centric core competencies’ he realised it was time to create a Web Design Agency that was less about self promoting buzz-words and more about people and giving them the tools to understand the web.

The idea behind We Push Buttons was to create an environment where business owners can learn about building their organisation, whether it be with an outstanding website, SEO or any other marketing ideas. Coming from the art industry and online retail background he knows first hand the needs of growing a business in a tough environment.
