We believe in the power of creativity to build connected, innovative and vibrant communities.
Our support of the arts and cultural sector facilitates diverse and meaningful art practice that enriches our world, challenges our thinking and contributes to community and cultural development.
A powerful communication tool, the creative sector brings both intrinsic social value and wider economic, education and health benefits.
Through collaborative, co-created partnerships we support artists and cultural organisations to achieve mutual goals. With a focus on our home state of Western Australia, we work across artforms and sectors to build capacity and sustainability.
Our support is diverse and includes funding, advocacy and assistance in forming connections. We look for creative solutions to wicked problems and challenge our partners to do things differently.
We believe in nurturing emerging artists and do this through exceptional training opportunities. We also support audience development with the creation of new, engaging work.
Arts and culture should be accessible to everyone. We want to eliminate the barriers some people face in experiencing the arts and focus on increasing access and engagement for the broader community. We want to see Western Australia become a nexus for new creative talent and artistic excellence.
