Horizons is a state-wide regional project that provides direct intensive support to young people (aged 16-27) wanting to pursue a career in the creative industries. Horizons will celebrate and support the creative strengths of 75 young people from the 15 Regions of the NSW Regional Arts Network over 18 months.

It will provide new and enhance existing pathways for young regional people to explore further work and study opportunities in the creative industries.
