The Clarence Valley community and Clarence Valley Cultural Committee are working to develop arts and culture in our region.  Clarence Conversations is a place where you can share your ideas and comments on all the Clarence Valley Cultural Strategic Plan and help create actions and projects.  Get involved, share your ideas, find like-minded groups and organisations and check out Clarence Conversations - Culture. 

Public Art

Public art is an expression of diversity and supports a community in creating culture. It is an opportunity to increase awareness of Aboriginal cultural heritage, historic heritage and our continuing contemporary culture. If you would like to champion a public art project, please complete a Public Art Proposal form and email it
