The Creative Regions Lab aims to redefine creative activity in regional Australia to create regional futures. We are a teaching and research hub that drives the development of creative enterprises and activities in regional Australia.

Our core function is to conduct research, identify themes, invent industries, direct, coordinate,respond, and promote all projects nationally and internationally.

We operate through projects that combine the culture of regional creativity and innovation  with the invention of new productivity possibilities.
