About Get Lost

Get Lost profiles who, where and what’s happening across Mount Alexander Shire’s arts, culture and creative industries.

We foster a collaborative approach to attracting investment in our celebrated creative network to maintain and strengthen the value we provide to Central Victoria and beyond.

Get Lost is directly informed by the 2019 Creative Industries Cluster Muster, which set clear directions for Mount Alexander Shire Council to best support our celebrated creative community.

The Get Lost platform is managed by Council with support from key delivery partners including the Victorian State Government, helping our creative industries under COVID-19 through the Regional Recovery Fund.

The Get Lost platform is being developed in stages, with the Victorian State Government’s support enabling the stage two launch in mid-2022.

Stage one is gathering current details, profiles and stories from across our community. Council is transitioning its cultural development service communications to the Get Lost platform throughout this stage and is supporting a number of key collaborative projects in the public realm, including the Village Square development which has also received Victorian Government support through the Creative Neighbourhoods Partnership Pilot Program and Outdoor Activation Fund.

Stage two will enable collective engagement with our local and global audiences via an exciting, content rich online experience. Our members will have access to a private dashboard to manage their own content, linking to events calendars, ecommerce capabilities and a resource hub of training materials.

We encourage those who live, work and play in Mount Alexander Shire to build a profile on Get Lost through stage one so we can best support you through stage two switch over from the start.
