We believe that the arts is critical to the social, cultural and economic health of Newcastle and the Lower Hunter region.

  • – providing leadership to the creative sector to support its sustainability.
  • – providing opportunities for artists to develop their creative and professional skills as well as test out new ideas.
  • – taking a community cultural development approach to supporting participation in the arts by diverse communities as creators, participants, audiences and leaders.
