Arts Northern Rivers has partnered with Lismore Regional Gallery to host the 2019 Artbank Roadshow – Lismore Regional Gallery will be the only stop in NSW! The national initiative seeks to provide access for unrepresented artists to meet with Artbank staff to potentially be acquired for the Artbank Collection.
As part of Your Big Idea Arts Northern Rivers presents Big Talks; a series of discussions with creatives and commentators who have something to say.
The region-wide lecture series will explore creative projects through case study presentations, panels and workshops.
Arts Northern Rivers want to hear YOUR BIG IDEA. We are calling for proposals for ambitious arts projects ready to be developed into a funding application in mid 2018. The project will be groundbreaking and have the ability to grab the attention of a local, national or international audience.
Applications will be assessed by a panel of highly regarded industry leaders. The concept must be original and at the cutting edge of visual arts, experimental, performance, theatre, live art, music, sound, dance or interdisciplinary contemporary arts practice.
In 2019 the Art on Bundjulung Country project continues to provide opportunities for Aboriginal people across the Northern NSW to explore better health and wellbeing through connection with cultural arts.
The Northern Rivers is home to the highest concentration of arts and creative industries practitioners outside of metropolitan centers.
Northern Rivers Creative is a directory showcasing professional practitioners of the Northern Rivers and committed to making connections for local, national and international markets for local creatives.
The project recorded the life stories of 10 Elders from the Bundjalung nation in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales. It was been inspired by the energy and passion of Dale Roberts – a local Aboriginal woman who has worked along side our region’s most respected and loved Elders.
Dale said, ‘Ever since I can remember people were asking me, for years, about how to get in touch with Elders and speak to our Aboriginal mob’.
