Cementa Inc is a rurally situated, socially embedded arts organisation committed to cultivating contemporary art culture specific to our regional context and to bridging the perceived divide between urban and regional art.
Situated in the post industrial town of Kandos, in the heart of regional NSW, Cementa operates a unique model that involves our community country town as both collaborator and context for visiting artists and audience experiences. Artists make work addressesing the concerns and social reality of people living in regional Australia
Kandos was built to house the workforce of the Kandos cement works. Sitting at the foot of Combamolang Mountain – Kandos looks out at one of the most stunning landscapes in inland NSW.
Our program runs across the two years between festivals, bringing over 20 artists a year into Kandos on residency, delivering exhibitions, workshops, artist talks, performances and other cultural experiences that contribute to the generation of a regionally situated culture that participates in national conversations. Every two years, our work culminates in Cementa festival, a 4 day, 40 artist celebration of this culture
