2020 Northern Rivers Bushfires Impact
Arts Northern Rivers is working with agencies to assist our creative community with bushfire recovery. If you are professional artist, a creative business, museum, gallery or collective living or operating in the Northern Rivers (Ballina Shire, Byron Shire, Clarence Valley, Kyogle, Lismore, Richmond Valley, Tweed Shire) and have suffered direct impact from the bushfire we want to hear from you.
To help us get a picture of how the recent catastrophic bushfires have impacted on artists and creative businesses, we have recently distributed a survey that aims to put a figure on the negative economic impact these fires have had.
Already the responses are providing some disturbing insights with many respondents, particularly those in the Clarence and Kyogle local government areas, describing significant losses to equipment and infrastructure.
