D'Art Report: Cultural Development in Rural and Remote Regions

IFACCA and Regional Arts Australia,
08 December 2006, Australia

The topic was initiated by an international network concerned with identifying good practice in facilitating arts, creative industry and/or cultural development in rural and remote areas. The network included groups from Scotland, England, USA, and Australia.

The report finds that while much of the focus for research on the arts in rural and remote areas is about sustainable economic development, it is the value of the arts for cultural and social well being that predominates in forums and conferences.
