ARTS Northern Rivers is calling for expressions of interest from artists and creative industry practitioners living and working in the Richmond Valley, to take part in the Northern Rivers Creative Roadshow. The Roadshow is an exciting opportunity for creative professionals to show off their work in a series of high street pop ups rolling out across the region over the next two years. The Richmond Valley Pop Up will open in September with a brilliant program of professional development mini-workshops and artist talks which are sure to provoke, stimulate and kick-start creative careers. The Northern Rivers is well known as a ‘hot-spot’ for the creative industries making up the highest concentration of visual artists outside Australian capital cities and the largest cluster of screen industry workers outside Sydney and Melbourne.
To further promote and foster the rapidly developing industry, Arts Northern Rivers launched Northern Rivers Creative, a portfolio platform for arts and creative industry practitioners which offers accessible tools and a network to enhance the exposure of local creatives on the Internet and beyond. Richmond Valley arts and creative industry practitioners interested in the opportunity are encouraged to submit an expression of interest form. Alternatively, more information and the EOI can be found on the Arts Northern Rivers website or by calling Arts Northern Rivers on 6628 8120.
For more information, interviews and photo opportunities please contact Zoe Robinson-Kennedy, Arts Northern Rivers Communications Officer, on 6628 8120 or 0403 666 584.
