27 JUNE 2019

Welcome to Artsblast

The latest Arts & Cultural news, events + opportunities from across the region. 

Artwalk is back in Port Macquarie 

Save the date of July 18  for the return of the increasingly popular Artwalk in Port Macquarie!

The Port Macquarie CBD, its streets, intersections, cafes and cultural facilities will become the stage for contemporary works as artists push the boundaries of their practice. Artists' works will be responding to this years' theme of 'Elements' -  reflecting and exploring the concept of elements across lands looking to earth, wind, water and fire.

There is also a range of other creative activities happening throughout the whole weekend that encourages the community to come together, exchange ideas and foster community spirit.
