About the South West Regional Arts Services Network (RASN) 

RASN is an initiative of the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland. This new approach to the delivery of state-wide arts services is network of regional arts service providers who, supported by the State Coordination Office, will work together to deliver on-the-ground arts services in their communities across the state. The network will drive regional development across regions and work with the local arts sector, the community and key stakeholders to determine specific arts and cultural priorities for each region.
