ARTS promotion & support
We promote participation in local arts events, in Arts OutWest projects and in arts opportunities.
Free promotions of your arts events and opportunities

Arts OutWest runs an arts media program aimed at gaining media coverage and public awareness of arts and cultural events in the NSW Central West. We aim to showcase the scope, quality, quantity and unique character of the arts and culture that happens in our part of the world.

The arts media program has been running for more than 40 years in one form or another (the first weekly listings of arts events to local media went out in 1978) and promotes around 2000 events and hundreds of opportunities every year. As part of the core, funded program of Arts OutWest, the arts media program is a FREE service for the Central West.
