South West Arts

Carrathool Shire Council is a member of the Regional Arts Organisation, South West Arts.

South West Arts is a non-profit organisation that encourages and develops all art forms in the south west of NSW. Initiated in 1983 through the joint efforts of several local government bodies, the Arts Council of NSW and interested members of the community, South West Arts has enhanced the cultural life of communities in this area for twenty one years.

 Members of South West Arts believe that involvement in the arts strengthens and unites communities by creating a better environment and quality of life. There are also economic advantages to where arts cultural development creates employment and encourages tourism by promoting and developing the identity of the region. South West Arts values the important cultural history of our region, and works to enhance and sustain future cultural opportunities for our communities.
