What is ‘Dubbo Artz’?
Dubbo Artz is the Arts Council of Dubbo
In 1995 Dubbo Arts and Cultural Advisory Council Inc. (DACAC) was formed from an alliance between the existing Dubbo Arts Council and a group of interested people from the Dubbo Art Gallery.
A constitution was adopted with the brief that “DACAC Inc. exists to facilitate the enrichment of the cultural life of the people of Dubbo and surrounding area.”
With this in mind a list of aims and objectives was drawn up and this includes:
- To advocate on behalf of cultural organizations and individuals.
- To expand cultural activity in Dubbo.
- To advise the Dubbo City Council on arts and cultural matters.
- To represent the cultural organisations in Dubbo.
Following on from these aims and objectives, DACAC moved into a new era with a name change to Dubbo Artz Inc. in April 2003 and continues to promote the activities of Cultural Organisations and Groups, as well as advocating for the Arts and Culture in Dubbo.
An elected committee runs the organization on a volunteer basis. Two types of Membership is available – Individual – offered to all interested persons and Group – which is offered to all autonomous cultural organisations.
