Hear from our Next Level alumni

In 2021, members of the Regional Arts WA team chatted to two young artists about their experiences as Next Level Regional Grant recipients, what it’s like working in regional WA, and how they have taken their arts practice to the Next Level.

  • Rita Bush, a 2017 alumni, discusses her experience working on her dance theatre project and the opportunities that have come since.
  • Sita Bennett, a 2020 participant, talks about the application process and work on her current projects in writing and film.

You can see other chats we have facilitated in on our Regional Online Chats Archive.
