Thank You Create NSW

The Coffs Harbour Regional Conservatorium would like to express its sincere gratitude towards Create NSW for the generous funding provided for the Conservatorium Extension Project. This project would not have been possible without the support and financial contribution from Create NSW, and the Coffs Con greatly values the investment made by our state government in the development of music education and arts and culture.

The funding received has played a vital role in enabling the Coffs Con to achieve the objectives and bring the exciting vision to life. It has empowered the whole Coffs Con team to carry out extensive research, develop innovative solutions, and make a meaningful and lasting impact for the greater Coffs Coast community.

We are immensely grateful for the trust and confidence placed in our project by Create NSW. Their commitment to fostering the creative industry in Regional NSW has been instrumental in driving our success.

We would also like to extend our appreciation to the dedicated staff members at Create NSW who have provided guidance, support, and valuable insights throughout the funding process. Their expertise and partnership have been invaluable in ensuring the smooth execution of our project.

We look forward to the continued collaboration and the opportunity to share our progress and achievements with Create NSW.
