Regional Arts Partnership Program

Regional Arts Partnership Program (RAPP) is one of the three streams of funding delivery appropriated by Country Arts WA’s Scheme Four funding initiative. 

The RAPP aims on bringing together regional artists and arts organisations with key service organisations, to create collaborative partnership groups to drive regional arts development across Western Australia within five identified priority areas.

How are the collaborative partnerships formed?

The collaborative partnership groups will be teamed up with key service organisations to co-create a shared program or project, within a priority area that meet the RAPP criteria:

  • Collaborative creativity
  • Excellence
  • Relevance
  • Impact
  • Knowledge

The duration of the partnerships will range from one to three years where they will meet to share information and outcomes to deepen the knowledge base and form a RAPP Network. This initiative offers an opportunity for each partnership group to determine their program’s funding requirements.

Partnerships are formed between groups of service organisations, regional artists and regional organisations.

Service organisations have an established relationship with regional WA and are delivering high quality and relevant skills and/or professional development services. They provide leadership and peak representation for an arts sector. Each major arts service organisation has highlighted priority areas where their expertise and experience will be of most value to a partnership group.
