Arts North West and Northern Inland Regional Development Board are working with the New England Regional Art Museum in Armidale, Tamworth Regional Gallery, Inverell Art Society and Moree Plains Regional Gallery to bring a one-day workshop to each area between 3 - 6 March 2009.
The workshops are the next stage of the Art as an Industry Symposiums. The program has been devised after consideration of the feedback received from the Visual Arts Survey Report undertaken of the New England North West region of NSW by Isabelle Devos.
The Making Art – Making a Living workshops for artists, art societies and galleries are supported by Museums & Galleries NSW (M&G NSW) and the National Association for the Visual Arts (NAVA) whose representatives, Cath Fogarty and Merrilee Kessler, will be presenters at the workshops. Other speakers include successful Northern Rivers artists Robyn Sweany and Christine Willcocks who are founding members of c.a.s.e (contemporary art space and education) and the Piece Gallery, Mullumbimby.
