Arts Northern Rivers launches Northern Rivers Creative directory

Arts Northern Rivers have launched an online directory to increase exposure and sales opportunities for creatives by connecting them to local and global markets.

The directory, Northern Rivers Creative, will be a resource for the creative sector of the Northern Rivers.

With the highest concentration of creatives outside of metropolitan areas, the Northern Rivers is home to some of the most diverse, vibrant arts communities in Australia.

Northern Rivers Creative combats geographical, socio-economic and cultural barriers inhibiting emerging and established creatives. The resource will provide artistic excellence to potential markets while offering viable, sustainable work opportunities and professional development for our growing creative community. Northern Rivers Creative celebrates the region’s thriving creative diversity, featuring a range of categories including creative services, visual arts, design, indigenous arts, literature, music, performance and screen.

Arts Northern Rivers’ Executive Director, Peter Wood said: “We are excited to be launching such an important resource for the creative industries of the Northern Rivers. The creative sector in our region is a significant economic driver, and we are committed to supporting its growth and sustainability through this opportunity.”

Northern Rivers Creative is supported by Arts Northern Rivers’ contributing local councils and funding partners, Create NSW and Department of Communication and the Arts.
