Artstate Bathurst 2018
Celebrate the best of regional arts! Artstate will feature an exciting program of theatre, music, dance, film and visual arts celebrating the vitality and creativity of NSW regional artists across Bathurst.
Artstate is a four-year project by Regional Arts NSW to shine a light on excellence in regional arts practice and to explore the exciting possibilities for arts and cultural development across the state. In 2018 the event moves to the Central West, partnering with Arts Outwest in Bathurst. From 1-4 November 2018 there will be an exciting two-day program of speakers exploring the themes of A Sense of Place and Robust Regions. Accompanying the Speakers Program will be a diverse Arts Program featuring creatives from across the Central West of NSW. 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.
