WELCOME TO BMCAN
Connecting Creatives Across the Greater Blue Mountains
We are delighted to welcome you to the Blue Mountains Creative Arts Network (BMCAN) — a vibrant, engaged community of creatives living in the Greater Blue Mountains encompassing the City of Blue Mountains and the Seven Valleys (Lithgow).
In collaboration with our partner organisations, we seek to support all arts genres and to project a positive image, regionally, nationally and internationally of Greater Blue Mountains arts and culture through member-initiated projects, art exhibitions and through multi-arts events with our network partners.
We offer our members personalised pages on our website, and the opportunity to engage in thought leadership through our blog and forums.
The BMCAN community is supported by a volunteer management committee that meets once a month and reports to our members through our quarterly ARTBytes e-newsletter.
Members can get involved in the full range of our activities and projects, which you can learn about elsewhere on this website:
- Seek support for your project from fellow members in the network
- As a visual artist, help to support and exhibit in our exhibition programs
- Have your personal page linked to your own artwork and projects on our website
- As a writer, contribute to our Wild Mountain Collective blog and ARTBytes quarterly newsletter
- As a cultural worker in the community, help us build strong partnerships with other cultural organisations
- As a creative use BMCAN as your auspicing body if you are applying for a grant
- As a musician or performing artist, work with us to initiate and run multi-arts events that showcase your talents
