Few artists are comfortable talking about their practice in business terms, feeling somehow it may make them seem less than a true artist. But business and career play a big part in all the decisions we make along the way of a creative life.
Arts Northern Rivers is the peak body and support agency for arts and cultural development in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales. We are part of a statewide network of 14 regional arts boards, providing strategic direction for sustainable arts and cultural development for our vibrant region.
We are an independent not for profit organisation, supported by Arts NSW and our seven local governments - Ballina, Byron Shire, Clarence Valley, Kyogle, Lismore, Richmond Valley and Tweed Shire.
