Artstate Tamworth

Presented by Regional Arts NSW, ‘Artstate Tamworth’ is the third iteration of the organisation’s four-year program ‘Artstate’ established in 2017 as a platform to highlight the excellence in regional arts practice in the region.

From 31 October to 3 November 2019 the township of Tamworth will be a hub for visual art, theatre, dance, film and conversation, across a dynamic program of exhibitions including ‘Exploded Textiles’, ‘Art Word Place’ and ‘Warrabara’ by Kamilaroi weaver Amy Hammond. A two-day conference will explore the theme ‘On Country – In Country and Arts in the Age of Uncertainty’, ‘Girrabul Murris (talented Murris)’ will take the stage for the open-air concert and five local artists including Reko Rennie will electrify building façades with a series of light projections.
