Dubbo is a thriving and dynamic regional City and home to more than 40,000 people. Known as the City of Smiles, Dubbo is a place where the people are relaxed, friendly and welcoming and they really mean it when they ask how you are.
While every host community provides a unique experience, there are some common themes underpinning all RAA conferences. The by-line ‘Part Conference, Part Festival, All Arts’ accurately describes the dynamic cultural experience that draws regional and non-regional artists to these significant cultural exchanges.
2016 will mark the return of the conference to NSW for the first time in 14 years, and will see the introduction of the ARTLANDS brand to be used for all future RAA conferences.
