AN ARTIST-LED ONLINE STUDIO PROGRAM CONNECTING CULTURAL PRACTITIONERS WORKING IN REGIONAL AND REMOTE GEOGRAPHIES ACROSS AUSTRALIA, ASIA, AND THE PACIFIC
Driven by a sense of inter-personal generosity and creative rigour Regional Assembly nurtures critical conversations, professional comradery and artistic growth with a cohort of artists, writers and makers from a wide diversity of fields, working at the crossroads of art, community, and philosophical enquiry.
Regional Arts Australia’s guiding principle is that place is central to creative practice and provides profound practical and emotional links across the economies and synergies of culture. We are also invested in the relationships that exist between places.
Over the course of a year ten artists will each receive an artist fee to participate in ten online sessions of facilitated conversation, defined by the needs and interests of the group. Sessions may generate other sessions, provocations can be picked up for deeper exploration, and esteemed guests will be invited to contribute to the program.
Regional Assembly is a Regional Arts Australia strategic program. It is made possible through the Regional Arts Fund, an Australian Government program that supports sustainable cultural development in regional and remote communities in Australia.
