CASP Grants Opening Soon
We understand applications for CASP will open very soon and will be administered by Create NSW rather than Regional Arts NSW.

Now is the time time to get your thinking caps on for projects as there will be a shorter time for proposals to be developed and submitted than previous years. We will provide all details on our website as soon as they are made available to us.

For more information contact
Call for Art Therapists on The Mid North Coast
Arts Mid North Coast will be developing a number of projects in the next year relating to Creative Recovery and Wellbeing. We are developing a register of Art Therapists on the Mid North Coast to assist us in these projects.

  • Complete a postgraduate qualification in arts therapy recognised by ANZACATA.
  • Complete 750 hours of supervised field experience on a clinical placement.
  • Register with ANZACATA.
