A big congratulations to Mid North Coast recipients of the 2024 Regional Arts Fund grants. The following exciting projects have received funding through RAF: 

Nambucca Valley Phoenix Limited, ‘Ability Arts Connect MNC’ – The aim of the project is to connect, celebrate, and inform artists with lived experience of disability on the NSW Mid North Coast, their carers, and support organisations, through a one-day conference, exhibition and art prize to be held at Nambucca Valley Phoenix, in Bowraville NSW.

Bellingen Youth Orchestra 2024 Player Camp – a dynamic and immersive long-weekend regional fine-music experience aimed to nurture the talents of 80 young players with 20 accomplished musical leaders, fostering a rich atmosphere of growth, collaboration, and excellence.

Sydney John Heath, ‘Birrpai’ – Birrpai puts a First Nations perspective on colonial photography alongside contemporary dance through a father-and-daughter contemporary dance piece and photographic exhibition that explores the idea of shifting the gaze and refocusing the colonial lens that has publicly framed their ancestors.

Taree Universities Campus ‘Art at the Heart’ – an initiative by Taree Universities Campus to respectfully rejuvenate the former Greater Taree Council building which will be the future home of TUC from January 2024. The project will facilitate the employment of Aboriginal Biripi artists to create works for the lobby space of the building, for Elders to record their stories, and Biripi dancers and musicians to perform in the public foyer space.

Arts Mid North Coast, MiNi (digital) Concerts – showcasing some of the very best musicians emerging from the Mid North Coast of NSW. The project will provide paid opportunities to regional-based emerging artists, enhance their digital presence, and extend their reach globally. It showcases local music venues, strengthens partnerships, and engages a selection process through Arts Mid North Coast and Music NSW.

The Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund (RAF) will provide a total of $625,694.90 to support 28 new projects in regional, rural, and remote New South Wales in 2024. Minister for the Arts, Tony Burke, congratulated the recipients and their contributions to Australia’s arts scene.
