MAAS Regional Program

MAAS Regional Program

 

The Regional Program run by the Museum of Applied Art & Sciences engages with regional NSW communities, reaching audiences across digital and physical means through public programming, co-productions, festivals and partnerships.

The Regional Program includes presentations, workshops, video conferencing and initiatives that support regional NSW collecting organisations and communities.

Available programs include:
