Regional Arts Network

Regional Arts WA believes the regional arts sector will be stronger – more connected, creative and capable – when networks are established, people know each other, and they have the opportunity to work together.

Looking to change the way the regional arts sector talk to each other, Regional Arts WA has partnered with strategically aligned local organisations to grow a Network of Hubs across the state.

The Hubs engage and respond directly to their local communities by providing on-ground support for their communities’ needs. Their role is to increase local decision making, strengthening relationships with local governments and stakeholders, whilst seeking development opportunities for artists and arts workers within their communities.

The Hubs then connect back to a state-wide Regional Arts Network, assisting in building a sustainable and thriving ecosystem of connected creative regional communities which collaborate together.

As part of the Regional Arts Network initiative, Regional Arts WA has collaborated with Dr Shona Erskine to create a leadership program that is adaptable to all individuals and their community needs.

In partnership with the Regional Arts Network, the Creative Leadership Program will be delivered across regional Western Australia to help facilitate a culture of self-led leadership, collaborative leadership and community-led contribution.
