ARTLANDS HAS BEEN A STRATEGIC REGIONAL ART GATHERING SINCE 1998
Regional Arts Australia has a critical role in contemporary regional culture, to facilitate ideas and engage across the creative and artistic sector, to open doors and join the dots. Our strategic programming supports high quality practice through professional and sector development opportunities.
Regional Arts Australia (RAA) delivered Artlands, by arrangement with state based regional arts organisations till 2017 when an independent review was conducted and RAA accepted the recommendation that it should take primary responsibility as Executive Producer from 2019.
Artlands is Australia’s seminal national event designed to reflect and respond to emerging trends and shine a spotlight on arts and creative practice in regional, rural and remote Australia.
