Artlands Dubbo (2016)
The vibrant city of Dubbo in the Orana region of New South Wales was chosen to host the 2016 Regional Arts Australia (RAA) conference and festival, Artlands, from 27-30 October 2016.
Artlands Dubbo marked the return of the conference to NSW for the first time in 14 years, and saw the introduction of the Artlands brand to be used for all future RAA conferences. The handover to Dubbo from Kalgoorlie, host of the conference for 2014, included a welcome from Wiradjuri elder, Dr Stan Grant AM, who presented elders of the Wongatha people with gifts.
Artlands Dubbo continued the tradition of Part Conference, Part Festival, All Arts with four jam-packed days of activity, conversation, discussion, debate and inspiration from across Australia and overseas. To view the conference and festival programs, visit www.artlandsdubbo.com.au.
