Vote Arts for your community at this State Election on 11 March 2017. Arts have a key role to play in making regional communities liveable, accessible, dynamic and diverse places to live and it is important that investment into regional arts continues. As the State’s leading regional arts organisation, Country Arts WA has called for significant ongoing investment into the arts across Western Australia with the Vote Arts Campaign.
- The Vote Arts Campaign is lobbying for continued $ 24 million regional arts funding from 2020 to 2024.
