NSW Government providing opportunity for practitioners to attend ARTLANDS conference
NSW artists and arts workers are invited to apply for registration bursaries that will enable them to attend the regional ARTLANDS conference in Dubbo this October.
Executive Director of Arts NSW Michael Brealey said ARTLANDS is a key regional arts and cultural event that provides opportunities for practitioners to connect with national and international peers and share ideas and knowledge.
“More than 1000 delegates are expected to attend the ARTLANDS conference, which will showcase and promote our State’s regional arts and cultural excellence while providing a significant boost to Dubbo’s economy,” Mr Brealey said.
“The conference will feature national and international keynote speakers as well as panels, forums and workshops, with discussions revolving around the themes of regeneration, connectedness and emergence.
“Collaboration between regional and metro based artists and arts workers at events such as ARTLANDS is a key objective of this program, to foster ongoing partnerships and networks across the State.
“This event is an excellent opportunity for regional artists working in isolated areas to meet fellow practitioners and expand their business network, which is why I strongly urge regional NSW artists and arts workers to apply for these bursaries.”
Regional NSW, metropolitan and Western Sydney based independent artists and arts workers from organisations with 10 or less staff members can apply for a bursary, which consists of a full registration to attend the four-day conference, worth $895.
Applications open on Monday 5 September 2016 and close on Monday 26 September 2016. Aboriginal and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse artists and arts workers, as well as artists and arts workers with a disability and young people, are encouraged to apply.
ARTLANDS is a national Regional Arts Australia Conference and Arts Festival, hosted by Regional Arts NSW, which will be held in Dubbo from 27–30 October 2016. Arts NSW is a principle partner of ARTLANDS.
