Frequently Asked Questions

What does Country Arts WA do?

Country Arts WA is the only Western Australian arts body with a purely regional focus.

Our purpose is to build the creativity, connection and capacity of regional communities to further develop WA’s regional arts sector around key outcomes of diversity, sustainability, relevance, and celebration. We work with the regional arts sector by focusing on arts investment and project advice opportunities, strategies to encourage development and growth, communication of strong, positive stories and the networking of regional hubs and leadership programs across the State.

What is "the regional arts sector"?

The regional arts sector is made up of people and organisations who live and/or work in the arts and cultural space in regional WA, which is composed of the 9 regions outside of Perth; Kimberley, Pilbara, Gascoyne, Midwest, Goldfields-Esperance, Wheatbelt, Peel, South West and Great Southern.
