from NYC to Kalgoorlie!

Last week North Coast manager Julie Barratt attended the Regional Arts Summit in Kalgoorlie alongside RADO Peter Wood and Zoe Robinson-Kennedy from Arts Northern Rivers. The conference was attended by over 500 delegates and sessions raised discussions on arts leadership, funding strategies and research, the management of remote Arts Centres and much more. Julie and Zoe presented a 20 x 20 presentation on the twelve + 3 exhibition which was well received. A digital presentation of the exhibition was also shown in the digital gallery space at the conference. The next Regional Arts Summit will take place in Dubbo, 2016.
