Art and Artisans.
The Hunter Arts Network, better known as HAN, is a non-profit incorporated membership of artisans from the Hunter. Rising from the idea that Newcastle and the Hunter are full of creative people producing high quality art, craft and design-based work, Newcastle City Council spent some years facilitating the establishment of HAN to give representation to these people.
HAN now works via a committee and sub committees to continually strive to improve activities of HAN and to ensure the shape and structure of HAN is relevant. HAN was incorporated in December 2005 and launched in February 2006 at the Newcastle Region Art Gallery.
HAN strives to facilitate the opportunities for promotion of member’s & their work through Art Bazaar, social media, our newsletter, blog and artist page on this website.

About the Art Bazaar
Art Bazaar has developed a presence on the art and cultural event calendar of the Hunter and NSW. HAN strives to promote professionalism and maintain the high standard of art works on offer at Art Bazaar, and encourage emerging Artists to take the opportunity to present their talent.

The Market also represents an excellent opportunity for practitioners and organisations to develop professional networks which support the development of new work, broader audiences and marketing opportunities – all of which align directly with the objectives of HAN.
