In the Know...

For those involved or interested in the arts, Arts Mid North Coast has news and ideas to share every day. In fact we have 10 plus ways you can access this information!

Our Website

Our comprehensive website is a mine of information for those involved in the arts. Within our key section, Our Community, you can check out the latest News and Grants and SmartArt - where we post detailed toolkits, policy documents and guides of benefit to many. Visit our website. 

What’s On

This is the only guide for arts events and activities across the whole of the Mid North Coast.  Found within our Creative Coast section, you can search by art form and post your own events. Pre-COVID days it featured over 700 events a year with links to all Council events sites.  See what's on.


Get the latest news on major grants, opportunities & events direct to your inbox every two to three weeks with our e-newsletter, Arts Blast. Where appropriate there may also be special issues of Arts Blast based on one of our six local Council areas and your postcode.  Subscribe here 

News Alert

With so much happening and associated news these days we have introduced News Alert, a weekly posting of key happenings for the week whether that be a grant closing, a major exhibition opening or new information being added to SmartArt.


Our Facebook page is where we feature events happening within the region and share event images from organisers as they happen. You can find our Facebook page here  or through the icon on the top right hand corner our Home Page.


We use Twitter as a strategic tool to post matters of policy and issues, funding opportunities and relevant news from Australia and around the world. Think of it as your own Arts Magazine. You can catch our tweets here or by clicking the Twitter icon on our Home Page.


We love events and activities with great images and share them on our Instagram page. You can also click onto the Instagram icon on our Home Page. Use the hashtags #artsmnc and #creativecoast in your posts so we can find you!

Creative Ageing Notebook

Arts Mid North Coast encourages active arts participation for our ageing community. Our quarterly Creative Ageing Notebook gathers and publishes the latest research, news and opportunities in the Creative Ageing world. Keep up to date and subscribe here.

Annual Guides

At different times of the year we produce comprehensive guides to our regional special events including More than a Beach ( Summer Guide), the Mid North Coast Creative Ageing Festival and SHINE, the region’s heritage festival. These each feature 30 to 60 events across the region.

Coming Soon...


In November we will launch the first in a series of podcasts that will, in 2021, become a regular feature of how we share insights and information relevant to artists.


The Covid epidemic has refocused attention on the different digital opportunities   to present the arts and information relating to it. In 2021 we will reintroduce a feature showcasing both our and your videos. Watch this space!

Don't forget you can also get in touch with us directly to find out what's going on in the arts and cultural sector across the Mid North Coast and beyond!
