Regional Arts Organisations (RAOs) are non-profit entities that operate regionally across Aotearoa to provide strategic direction and support for sustainable arts, culture and heritage development.
The RAO Network’s overall purposes are:
– To operate as a community of practice, enabling peer-to-peer networking and the sharing of knowledge and practice.
– Strategic and coordinated advocacy to support investment in the arts, culture and creativity sector across the regions of Aotearoa New Zealand.
– Strategic and coordinated advocacy for the value and ongoing development of the Regional Arts Organisations as key regional-to-national arts infrastructure.
Take a look at our ‘Outcomes Framework’ that lists and discusses the impact area, example ROA activities and key RANA network activities.
