Regional Arts Network
When people know each other and can work together, our regional arts sector is stronger. We achieve this by developing and supporting Hub organisations, though a service agreement, to deliver a statewide Network.
WA is a big place. While distances between towns can be huge, so is the potential of the regional arts sector. That’s why Regional Arts WA formed the Regional Arts Network. A collective of arts organisations from around WA, coming together to connect, share conversations and create incredible things.
In this initiative, arts organisations become a Hub for their local community and regional area. As a Hub, they:
- advocate for the value of arts and culture by strengthening relationships with local governments and stakeholders, and
- promote and seek development opportunities for artists and arts workers.
Isolation and lack of resources are key challenges for the regional arts sector. Hub organisations support each other through these challenges by sharing knowledge, expertise, and resources. They connect back to one another (and Regional Arts WA) to create the Regional Arts Network.
The Regional Arts Network works collectively to amplify the voice of regional arts in WA. Together, they are finding new ways of connecting and collaborating on statewide projects to benefit the wider regional arts sector.
