Regional Arts WA

Regional Arts WA, through the Regional Arts Network initiative, is excited to bring the Creative Leadership Program to five new communities across the Kimberley, South West, Great Southern and Wheatbelt regions.

The Regional Arts Network is a Regional Arts WA initiative, proudly supported by Minderoo Foundation and The Ian Potter Foundation and with funding from the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund.

In collaboration with registered psychologist Dr Shona Erskine, the Creative Leadership Program aims to identify and develop local leaders, build collaboration, and encourage community-driven activities within regional WA. Since last year, 98 people have completed the Creative Leadership Program and the announcement of five new dates will give up to 125 new individuals the opportunity to participate.

Regional Arts WA CEO Paul MacPhail is excited to see the Creative Leadership Program roll-out further across the State.

“Regional Arts WA is proud to offer the Creative Leadership Program as a practical tool to strengthen leadership skills and unlock potential partnerships within our regions.

We encourage professionals of all backgrounds to get involved, whether you are an artist or arts worker or a community-minded individual who want to create an impact in your town, this is your opportunity to connect with your local Hub organisation and participate in the Creative Leadership Program.

We have received extremely positive feedback from past participants and look forward to furthering the program’s reach across the State.”
