Regional Arts NSW Annual Dinner 201406.05.2014
On the 16 April 2014, Regional Arts NSW hosted our annual dinner which was attended by members of the regional arts network and board members from across the state, artists and representatives of kindred arts organisations.
The function took place at Walsh Bay, and the audience was addressed by Regional Arts NSW CEO Elizabeth Rogers, the Hon. George Souris, RANSW Chair, Janice Summerhayes, and Fraser Corfield Artistic Director of ATYP.
At the event, Mr Souris announced a $200,000 funding boost from the NSW Government for the regional arts sector. $100,000 will go towards the Regional Arts Australia National Conference that Regional Arts NSW will host in 2016. Vic McEwan was also announced by the Minister as the first recipient of the Arts NSW Regional Fellowship.
The evening was a wonderful opportunity for the Regional Arts NSW and our affiliates to share ideas and network. Many of our guests travelled from interstate to attend, so we thank everyone who attended for coming along and making it a great night.
