This project is made possible by the Australian Government's Regional Arts Fund, which supports the arts in regional and remote Australia.
Connections is an ongoing program that aims to reduce the isolation of working and living in a remote part of Australia by providing communications and networks to artists in the region. Anyone can connect, it's easy!
Vast Arts has been running the Connections program for many years. It is only recently that the many facets of the program have been brought together under the one title of 'Connections'. This is part of the organisations' core business - to provide information, support, and a network for artists across the vast region that is western Queensland.
Connections consist of the following
- a fortnightly newsletter containing details of events in the region, art news and also funding and competition opportunities
- email updates of events and opportunities which may be of interest to members
- social media updates
- support and advice for localised projects
- development of ideas and projects which fall in line with Vast Arts core business
- promotion of members work and connection with galleries and other opportunities
Connections aims to reduce the effects of living, working and creating in a isolated region. The area of western Queensland serviced by Vast Arts comprises over 600,000km square and has a sparse population throughout compared with coastal and metropolitan areas. Opportunities are available in this region however usualy involve large amounts of travel and other hindrances with make accessibility difficult. By providing a network of like-minded people and a channel of information Vast Arts is able to support the arts in our communities.
