Connecting with the Coast’s Makers and Creators is now easier than ever through a new dedicated digital directory on the Love Central Coast website.

Central Coast Council Director Connected Communities, Julie Vaughan, said the exciting new digital resource showcases the growing creative enclaves of the Coast.

“We are home to a community of talented and forward-thinking individuals and this fantastic new digital directory makes it easier for all of us to discover and engage with their work,” Vaughan said.

“A Maker and Creator is an individual or group who creates something unique to share with our community and visitors.

“Connect with a truly diverse range of bespoke small business owners who call the Coast home – from painters and poets to beekeepers and craft beer distillers.”

The Makers and Creators microsite on the Love Central Coast website was funded by the NSW Government through $50,000 from the Bushfire Community Recovery and Resilience Fund.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, said the digital microsite would boost the profile of local businesses.

“This digital directory will not only help to promote the Central Coast and encourage more tourism for our region, but also make it easier for the community to discover unique and creative ventures taking place,” Crouch said.

Council Administrator Dick Persson said the Coast’s growing creative community contributes significantly to the vibrancy and diversity of the region.

“Talented individuals are increasingly choosing the Central Coast as the destination to establish themselves and their business, which makes an invaluable contribution to the region,” Persson said.

“Makers and Creators put so much passion into what they do, and Council is thrilled that this invaluable new digital directory will introduce more locals and visitors to their work.”
