A program of theatre, music, dance, film and visual arts celebrating the vitality and creativity of NSW regional artists was held last weekend in Lismore.

Artstate is a new four-year project by Regional Arts NSW that aims to ‘shine a light on excellence in regional arts practice and to explore the exciting possibilities for arts and cultural development across the state.’

The program has 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.
