Broome Fringe Festival Indigenous Participant Program

Broome Fringe Festival Indigenous Participant Program

Regional Arts WA

Kimberley Arts Network supported the Bidyadanga and One Arm Point First Nations communities to participate in the Broome Fringe Festival Art Trail. The program encouraged equity for remote communities to share and sell their artwork by hosting their own spaces in Broome and engaging in the cultural economy.

Project Name: Broome Fringe Festival Indigenous Participant Program
Funding Recipient: 
Kimberley Arts Network
Amount Approved:
Funding Program:
 Regional Arts Fund Quick Response Grant

Immediate need: Funding could not be accessed from other sources within the timeframe. Kimberley Arts Network identified that it would be a considerable lost opportunity if they were to not proceed with the Indigenous Participant Program in 2022, after building momentum from the previous year’s program. The Art Trail is a very popular event, attracting both locals and visitors to the Broome area, which allowed the participating artists to build their profile and expand their audience.
