Regional arts have the power to change lives. The regional arts sector makes our regional communities better places to live, contributes to economic growth and gives people a sense of belonging.
Established in 1994, Regional Arts WA is the state’s only service organisation delivering a multi-arts program to strengthen and celebrate this powerful regional arts sector.
We are a regionally governed, not-for-profit organisation that is highly regarded within WA and nationally as an innovative, high value leader in the arts and in regional and community development. We look after the regional arts sector – this means every artist, arts worker, arts and cultural organisation, and organisation or group with regional programs in WA.
Regional Arts WA values each region for its diverse communities, imperatives, cultural requirements and challenges. We honour these distinctive communities by coordinating a series of investment, advisory and developmental offerings which are flexible, innovative and relevant.
Our service delivery is diverse with a suite of programs including funding for arts projects large and small; capacity building support for key regional arts organisations and artists; the coordination of an emerging Regional Arts Network to connect the State; youth, CALD and First Nations’ specific projects; and opportunities to profile and showcase the work of the regional arts sector.
