Regional Arts Network goes from strength to strength
The Regional Arts Network, a Regional Arts WA initiative, continues to flourish across the State, with exciting news.
In partnership with Network member organisation, Arts Margaret River (South West), we will be delivering the upcoming Creative Leadership Program and Community Cabinet Reception.

Creative Leadership Program (8-9 November) is a dynamic, career building program that will upskill community leaders from the cultural, business and public sectors, across the South West region.
The Community Cabinet Reception, South West Arts Showcase (20 November) is an opportunity for South West-based artists, organisations and local governments to engage and showcase their talent in the presence of the State Government representatives and the community.
Regional Arts WA CEO Dr Pilar Kasat says she is excited to see the Regional Arts Network contributing towards a healthy and vibrant arts ecology in regional WA.
“We are delighted to be working with Arts Margaret River to deliver two very important events for the South West community. Being part of the Regional Arts Network allows organisations to amplify their impact through improved networks, leadership and statewide reach. Initiatives such as the Creative Leadership Program and the Community Cabinet Reception, South West Arts Showcase, are just two examples of how this is being achieved.
“The importance of arts and culture in our regional communities is undeniable. Strategic initiatives like the Regional Arts Network help to strengthen our sector, so arts and culture, and regional communities can thrive.”
Regional Arts WA established the Regional Arts Network in 2019 to strengthen the regional arts sector in Western Australia – make it more connected, creative and capable. Since the initiative began, it has supported organisations to deliver hundreds of activities across regional WA.
The Regional Arts Network is proudly supported by Minderoo Foundation and The Ian Potter Foundation, and with funding from the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund.
