COVID-19 RESPONSE

From 1 July 2020, Public Health Orders in NSW will be significantly eased, and most businesses including arts and culture venues will be able to reopen with COVID-19 Safety Plans and physical distancing protocols in place. As the public health conditions of COVID-19 are dynamic and subject to change at any time, Create NSW has developed this online resource to be updated with new material as it is released.
