Theme and Framework

Artlands Theme

The Artlands Victoria tagline, sharing knowledge, trading resources and exchanging gifts at a time of ceremony and gathering, is inspired by Chairperson of the Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation, Trent Nelson’s welcome in the Dja Dja Wurrung Country Plan 2014 -2034.

"Dja Dja Wurrung People learned much from land and shared their knowledge, traded resources and exchanged gifts with neighbouring clans and mobs during times of ceremony and gathering together to mark special times."

Artlands Framework

Expanding from the tagline, the framework for Artlands Victoria has been developed from the nine goals outlined in the Dja Dja Wurrung Country Plan and reinterpreted into an arts policy and practice context.

The framework connects arts and regional industries that are exporting growth, productivity and innovation in a regional context and curates a conversation that actively positions the arts within and alongside:
