Artlands Dubbo 2016

NT Delegates to Artlands Dubbo 2016

Darwin Community Arts was represented at Artlands Dubbo 2016 by Bong Ramilo and Jim McDougall. Artlands 2016 was the Regional Arts Australia National Conference and Festival, held at Dubbo, 26-30 October 2016. Hundreds of participants across Australia and some from overseas were at Artlands to discuss a range of issues relevant to Regional Arts in Australia.  Other Northern Territory delegates (pictured) -- from DCA, Arts NT, Katherine Regional Arts, Godinymayin Yijard Rivers Arts & Culture Centre, and Artback NT -- caught up in Dubbo to chat about possible initiatives the delegates may be interested in contributing to back in the NT. The NT delegates were interested in: a NT-wide arts conference; ways and tools to share information and resources, and collaborate; supporting the establishment of the proposed NT Chamber of Arts and Culture, and a regional arts body for the NT; and a bus/mobile art facility to travel to different regions.
