Your Creative Arts Facilitator

Regional Arts Victoria’s Creative Arts Facilitators are our key arts catalysts. Based in pivotal regional locations across the state, they work closely with artists, communities and local government. This passionate team of experts facilitate new work, keep their communities informed of key arts opportunities and development as well as supporting arts policy development.

Our Creative Arts Facilitators are part of the national Regional Arts Development Officer (RADO) network which is supported by the special long-term collaborative investment of the Australian Government Regional Arts Fund, local government and Creative Victoria.
