Description

Arts and Culture Matters!

Join us for a conversation about the importance of arts and culture to the Cessnock region's economic wellbeing. The region is home to an exciting fusion of artists, creative activities and arts and cultural venues. These extraordinary creative resources are often untapped, underdeveloped or undersupported.

This free event is tailored to the interests of the arts and cultural sector and will offer professional resources, information and networks for local creatives. This event is being held in conjunction with Cessnock Regional Art Gallery's monthly Art After Hours.

Who should attend?

Anyone working for themselves in the arts or creative industries, or interested in doing so.

Who's presenting?

Hear from local artist James Whitington about his practice and career as well as Octapod Director Christina Robberds about the social, cultural and economic importance of arts and culture for the region.

Drinks and nibbles provided.

A Small Business Month event proudly supported by the NSW Department of Industry, Cessnock City Council and Advance Cessnock City partners, with support from Cessnock Regional Art Gallery.

Octapod is the key arts and cultural development organisation for the Lower Hunter region.
