WELCOME

Published by under News

Welcome to YASSarts.

The Yass Valley Shire, 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.

The purpose of YASSarts is to draw attention to arts & culture in our region. This website’s broader 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 Shire.

The amount of professional practitioners in the region is quite astounding – people with national and international standing – but the idea of the YASSarts website is to also provide a platform and profile for those who do not make a living from their art but whose work is no less noteworthy.
