Artstate 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. Over the period 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 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 Artstate will move to a different regional location, building on the discussions in a new landscape and uncovering the artistic secrets of each region.
Artstate NSW is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
