Art Week Returns

When it was decided that Bellingen’s annual arts festival, Camp Creative was to be postponed until 2022 a small group of local artists and friends decided to fill the gap by reviving the original, highly successful, Arts Week held in 2013…

As a shire wide event covering Urunga, Bellingen, Dorrigo and surrounding areas, one of the main aims is to give a much needed boost to the shire’s creative industries, local commerce and tourism after an extremely difficult few months.

Local artists and community groups are hungry for creative events and the response has been amazingly positive. “So far the event has close to a hundred  participants and growing daily.” Said event co-ordinator Maggie Porter. “You’ll be surprised at the variety of events – 2D and 3D art, many types of music, drama, poetry, busking and pavement art”. Maggie also recommended looking under “Other” in the events listing on the website to find even more surprises. You can now start applying to take part in workshops. There are limited spaces so be quick.

There is still time to join up as participating artists, just head to the website and download the activity form. In the event that Covid 19 escalates Arts Week will be postponed not cancelled.
