This recommitment and continuation of funding in 2020 to 2024 is necessary to build on the tangible social and economic returns that have been delivered by the Royalties for Regions Creative Regions Program which saw $24 million invested over four years (2015-2019) in regional arts in Western Australia. These critical funds has had proven results in creating hundreds of regional employment opportunities, delivery of over 900 new arts projects, and enhanced skills of artists and arts workers.
This is further outlined in the Regional Arts Policy Framework that was launched at steps of Parliament House in October 2016. The framework provides analysis of the significant social and economic benefits that have been delivered through the Government’s $24 million Royalties for Regions Creative Regions Program.
Art creates opportunities for social interaction, inclusion and community cohesion. As more people become involved in regional arts, through one-one-one interaction with an arts organisation or participation in a funded project, our regional communities become more creative, connected and dynamic places to live. This is why we are calling for Western Australians to Vote Arts in their regional communities.
