For Arts Industry

We're investing in the future with a range of free opportunities for WA artists and arts workers in 2023. Connect for Arts Industry offers a meaningful way to network, share knowledge, build skills, push your practice, foster relationships and help make our industry stronger and better connected.

Our programs are aimed at those producing behind the scenes, artists out the front across all art forms and those who do both. See the first round of opportunities we're offering below.
