About the Project


The North Midlands Project is a not-for-profit community capacity-building organisation based in Carnamah, 300 kilometres north of Perth in Western Australia's Mid West region. We were incorporated in 2015 to improve the community's quality of life, health and well-being through arts, culture, heritage and education.

Geographically, the 'North Midlands' is the southern portion of the Mid West region and includes the local government areas of Carnamah, Coorow, Mingenew, Morawa, Perenjori and Three Springs. The North Midlands is our focus but we strive to deliver impacts more broadly.
