Western Australia's Peak Body for regional arts.

Become a Member Donate Today

Country Arts WA works with all nine regions to ensure arts and culture is woven into the fabric of life in every regional community in Western Australia.

Recognised as a lead organisation, Country Arts WA is the peak body for regional arts and is an independent, not-for-profit, membership based organisation. We are the only arts organisation in WA with a state-wide arts and cultural brief.

The role of Country Arts WA is to build creativity, capacity and connection in and between regional communities to further develop Western Australia’s regional arts sector.

 

Country Arts WA staff were fortunate last week to be immersed in the #ArtfulLeadership for Community Building program. We were joined by some of our Board and invited regional guests to take part in a fantastic program helping us all to consider how we can all grow personally to become better leaders in life and work. The workshop was lead by Kim Lisson from Karrak Consulting and our own Barb Howard, both of whom will run this same program in the second half of the year for a cohort of regional participants associated with our Regional Art Hubs. Using a seamless blend of games, activities, readings, group discussions and smaller conversations, it was evident by the final reflection session how much everyone had valued their participation and were looking forward to taking the skills and insights we’d gathered into our lives and learning more through our declared personal projects. This was the first session of a three part program and the promise of more learning has been matched by the commitment of all who took part – we can’t wait for April! - Paul MacPhail, Executive Director of Country Arts WA #CountryArts #RegionalArts #WesternAustralia #WesternAustralianArtist #KingStreetArtsCentre #OfficeLife #Australia #Workshop #TalkingCircle #Artful #Leadership

We got some awesome pics coming back from the #ShireOfKondinin project with #LenZuks - they used the #ProjectFund to remake the local sports complex with these #beautiful #quirky #sculptures made from scrap! Can't wait to see what these freshly trained artists get up to next! If you've got a great project idea for regional arts in WA, you can apply for the Project Fund at the link in our bio. 📷 Jenny Hardy #CountryArts #RegionalArts #RegionalArtist #Kondinin #scrapart #sculpture #scrapsculpture #westernaustralia #WesternAustralianArtist

So great to have the wonderful #DrugAwareYCultureRegional panelist Grace Crogan hanging out with us this week for some work experience! She was a little bit intimidated coming in, but says everyone made her feel incredibly welcome right away - and she’s having a great time! Will be sad to see you go on Friday Grace :( #officelife #perthisok #westernaustralia #westernaustralianartist #countryarts #regionalarts #workexperience #intern #kingsstreetartscentre

An incredible image from Debbie Carmody! "As told by Elder, Josie Boyle: Women of the Saltlake, the Birth of Karlkurla was filmed on a Saltlake in preparation for our Karlkurla Saltlake Performance featuring Mathias Duplessy and the Mongolian Violin Quartet." #australianartist #australianart #westernaustralianartist #westernaustralianart #countryarts #regionalart #aboriginalart #aboriginalartist #Kalgoorlie #kalgoorlieboulder #tjumapulka #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephotography #westernaustralia

🎁 This Christmas please consider giving a gift to all of regional WA, and give to arts and culture. 🎁 Link in Bio. We believe arts make life great, and this year you can help to cultivate and strengthen arts and cultural programs all the way from the Kimberley to the Great Southern and everywhere in between. Giving to Country Arts WA means you're supporting regional arts and culture, contributing to programs that reach out and respond to the needs expressed by regional people. 📷 Anton Blume - the Barefoot Black Tie event in Shark Bay for Gascoyne in May #Barefoot #Blacktie #Performance #Shark Bay #Gascoyne #GascoyneInMay #CountryArts #RegionalArts #AustralianArtist #WesternAustralianArtist #WesternAustralianPhotographer #blackandwhite #ArtsImprovesLives #donate #westernaustralia
