As the peak body for regional arts in Western Australia, advocacy is a key role that Country Arts WA performs for its members, the arts and community development industries and regional communities.
Successful advocacy requires a united voice and passionate champions. Through many years of consultation and lobbying we have achieved a great deal; yet realise the need to continue our efforts. We have developed some publications that we hope are useful for the sector as a whole.
