Welcome to YASSarts
The Yass Valley region, just north of the Australian National Capital, Canberra, boasts a remarkable variety of talent in the field of arts, either in people who choose to live here or who have been raised in this region
YASSarts is a not for profit incorporated organization run by volunteers with the aim of celebrating arts & culture in the Yass Valley region. The website’s purpose is to be that of an inventory – a kind of listing of all individuals or groups working within the arts, whether professional or amateur, within the Yass Valley.
The website also provides other facilities for your benefit such as an ‘Calendar’ of events, a ‘News’ section and links to various related points of interest
Through the website and YASSarts’ associated activities, we also attempt to provide a platform and profile for those who may not be career arts practitioners, but whose work is no less noteworthy.
Concurrently, we hope to assist and encourage local government and the community in harnessing the cultural tourism potential of our regional arts through events and, where possible, to be supportive of and provide assistance for, our local arts community.
