About Us

About Us

We’re a small team who do big things…

As the peak arts body, Arts Northern Rivers works with individuals, organisations and government to generate, promote and advocate for the arts and creative industries in the Northern Rivers region of NSW.

Arts Northern Rivers is supported by Arts NSW and the seven local Governments in our region who work with us to ensure access to arts and cultural activity for everyone.

What We Do

We love what we do because we love what you do…

The Northern Rivers is home to the highest concentration of arts and creative industries practitioners outside of metropolitan centers and we recognise the enormous contribution they make to the cultural, economic and social wellbeing of the Northern Rivers (and to the nation!)

We are committed to supporting the visibility, viability and vibrancy of this incredible region.

To achieve this we deliver an annual program of skills and professional development workshops, a dedicated strategy for supporting and sustaining Indigenous art and culture and offering support and advice for individuals in our region.
