Artlands Conference 2021 Toowoomba


Artlands has been a strategic regional art gathering for two decades. 2021 heralds a new approach to the delivery of this critical national event. Artlands will be curated alongside existing festivals, exhibitions, and gatherings connecting with creative programming and providing ongoing platforms for dialogue and critical conversations across all States and Territories. This approach encourages connections and engagement with local creative industries and practitioners and facilitates an integrated process of shared ownership and outcomes generating increases participation and audiences.

The Artlands 2021 program will offer a series of critical narratives across industry, research and academia that reflect current emerging trends and case studies as well as respond to challenges and opportunities experienced throughout regional Australian arts practice.  

Delivered from Junction Arts Festival in lutruwita (Tasmania), the Artlands 2021 program will also integrate other complementary hybrid gatherings with national venue partners across Australia.

Artlands 2021 invites us ‘to come together’ to explore the space between. To encourage process and exchange and find ways to support a creative ecosystem that is interconnected and integrated across art form, across communities and across landscapes. To:

Share  – listening and responding to new ideas and critical thinking

Consider - the value of shared knowledge

Connect  - through exchange & learning
