Galleries in regional South Australia are much more than places where you find pictures on walls. They are community hubs where people connect, volunteers thrive and innovation is encouraged.
The Regional Galleries Association of South Australia is the peak advocacy body for not-for-profit galleries in regional South Australia. The Association provides a united voice and we support galleries across the state through professional development, training and networking opportunities.
The Association strives to advance and protect the interest of regional galleries. We also aim to influence policy in the regional galleries and the broader arts sector, and have developed strategic partnerships with metropolitan institutions.
We promote better communication between galleries through our strong network of members. Members meet around five times per year and meetings are used to share information and skills. These meetings normally take place in Adelaide. However, the Association does hold at least one meeting per year in a regional centre.
We receive funding support from the State Government through Arts South Australia for our Project Officer and receive significant in-kind support from the Art Gallery of South Australia.
We also work closely with Country Arts SA and the Art Gallery of South Australia to develop and deliver strategic projects for our members.
