Centre for Regional Arts Practice is a registered trading name in the state of Queensland.
Created by Victoria Cooper and Doug Spowart it is developing into a network for regional arts advocacy and practice. Presently the artists attend meetings, contribute to forums and surveys and create events pertaining to the needs and concerns of regional artists.
The Centre has published 13 ‘Regional Artists Surveys’ which comment on regional arts practice. These surveys have been presented to arts practitioners, administrators, politicians and city artists – they have also been accepted into prominent artists’ book collections around the country.
Sometimes the Centre is also affectionately referred to by its acronym C.R.A.P.
