Event information

Join the conversation and celebrate the arts in regional NSW.

Artstate is a four-year project by Regional Arts NSW that shines a light on excellence in regional arts practice, and explores exciting possibilities for arts and cultural development across the state.

Each year, Artstate brings a vibrant program of regional, national and international speakers to a new regional location, where they can share their unique experiences in and knowledge of the arts. A curated Arts Program also provides visitors an unprecedented opportunity to see the very best and brightest talent that regional NSW has to offer.

In 2019 Artstate will take place in the New England city of Tamworth, with the help of Arts North West. From 31 October – 3 November, experience an inspiring two-day Speakers Program that explores the themes of On Country – In Country and Arts in the Age of Uncertainty. Accompanying the Speakers Program will be a diverse Arts Program that showcases the work of creatives from across the New England region.

Integral to Artstate is a strong focus on Aboriginal arts and arts leaders, as well as the recognition of the contribution of local government to arts and cultural development in regional NSW.
