Regional Arts Services Network (RASN) Tropical North

The Regional Arts Services Network (RASN) is about empowering Queensland’s regions to realise arts and cultural priorities and drive change through arts-led initiatives.
RASN service providers deliver local arts services across the state that enhance cultural vitality, create thriving communities and advance regional development and social priorities, aligning with the State Government’s Creative Together 2020 – 2030 Roadmap.

The evolution of RASN from its establishment in 2018, positions the network to harness the power of the arts to grow opportunities for artists and organisations in regional communities and drive strategic arts-led initiatives resulting in new investment, employment outcomes, and boosting opportunities for regional communities to access high quality arts and cultural engagement.

RASN works in partnership with local councils and diverse stakeholders, artists and arts organisations, and communities to foster, facilitate and promote the sustainable growth of regional arts across the state.
