Artstate Tamworth 2019

Artstate is a four-year project by Regional Arts NSW that shines a light on excellence in regional arts practice, and explores exciting possibilities for arts and cultural development across the state.

Each year, Artstate partner with their network of Regional Arts Development Organisations to bring a vibrant program of regional, national and international speakers to a new regional location, where they can share their unique experiences in and knowledge of the arts. A curated Arts Program also provides visitors an unprecedented opportunity to see the very best and brightest talent that regional NSW has to offer.

From 31 October – 3 November, Artstate will be hosting an inspiring two-day Speakers Program that explores the themes of On Country – In Country and Arts in the Age of Uncertainty. Accompanying the Speakers Program will be a diverse Arts Program that showcases the work of creatives from across the New England region.

Integral to Artstate is a strong focus on Aboriginal arts and arts leaders, as well as the recognition of the contribution of local government to arts and cultural development in regional NSW.

Artstate NSW is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW and Destination NSW.  Artstate Tamworth is supported by Tamworth Regional Council.
