Artlands Conference 2016
Thanks to the QUICKS grant I attended and listened to many inspiring key note speakers in the field of arts from around Australia and heard what other regional centres were achieving to make arts and cultural, significant in their town. I heard famous international speakers such as Clive Parkinson, Manchester United Kingdom a truly inspiring speaker who outlined historical and philosophical take on the arts and health.
In the afternoon I had way too many choices!! Some things I went to were practical workshops such as Maz McGann, ‘Play your part: Making a living as an artist in a regional area’ and ‘3D printing' with MAAS and came away from both with information and examples. As a regional artist in rural Grafton, such insights and access to knowledge and new technologies was a fantastic opportunity.
The biennial conference took place in Dubbo October 27-30, 2016.
