Artstate NSW (2017-2020)
Join the conversation and celebrate the arts in regional NSW
Artstate NSW is a new four year project by Regional Arts NSW to shine a light on excellence in regional arts practice and to explore the exciting possibilities for arts and cultural development across the state. From 2017 to 2020, we will be partnering with our network of Regional Arts Development Organisations to bring a stimulating program of regional, national and international speakers to share their experiences and knowledge. A curated arts program will also provide an unprecedented opportunity to see the best the regional NSW has to offer.
Integral to Artstate will be 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.
Each year we will move to a different regional location, building on the discussions in anew landscape and uncovering the artistic secrets of each region. In 2017, Artstate visited the river town of Lismore, and in 2018 will move to the Central West as Artstate Bathurst.
Sign up to our e-newsletter and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as we release new details of this annual program.
Artstate NSW is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
