Representatives from the NSW Government’s new integrated arts and cultural agency met with arts individuals and organisations in Dubbo on Friday.
Around 17 people attended the Creative NSW Roadshow hosted by the Western Plains Cultural Centre.
They were informed of the funding opportunities and additional support on offer.
Executive director of Orana Arts, Alicia Leggett, said a number of ideas were presented to Create NSW representatives.
She said the workshop was a good opportunity for regional artists to discuss funding opportunities with the amalgamated organisation.
“I think in general they were really impressed because they had a scope of being out in Mudgee, Dubbo and also Nyngan so they got an idea of the different ideas and needs that all the communities have,” she said.
“When you look at what’s out in the regions there’s just as much need for funding as in the metropolitan areas, so it is for Creative NSW to see it for themselves, especially when it comes to infrastructure.”
