SEE FULL ‘NSW-Arts-and-Culture-Framework-Regional-Summary’ PDF


This is a summary of the policy contained in the new NSW Arts & Cultural Policy Framework: Create NSW. It has been prepared by Arts Mid North Coast to highlight those matters relevant to Regional Arts and no way seeks to purport to be the full document. It has been prepared to encourage people in the first instance to read and understand a State wide Policy document and understand how it impacts on Regional NSW. It deletes from the original.

  • Sections specific to Western Sydney and Sydney
