DEVELOP + CONNECT
I'm looking for learning tools + resources, and to connect to the sector and/or exploring arts as a career.
PARTICIPATE IN THE ARTS
I'd like to get involved in culture + the arts, connect with local artists, groups and organisations.
Careers in culture and the arts are rarely linear journeys, and often require the use of several skillsets concurrently. Developing, funding, delivering, evaluating, and promoting projects are all crucial steps to success, as is awareness of your personal wellbeing.
The Creative Tool Box is designed for self-directed learning and development, to assist you in growing your personal and professional skills as you see fit. Simply select the section that best describes the area you would like to develop, and browse the relevant resources.
The Learning Hub represents the first stage of creating a digital space to celebrate and facilitate careers in the arts, by providing resources that empower individuals and organisations to create their own pathways to develop knowledge and practical skills.

WE WANT TO HEAR YOUR VOICE!
Your Voice is a permanently open communication avenue for people to have their say on what they think can be done better to assist in driving continuous improvement in the creative industry.
The aim of this Your Voice is to collect feedback and ideas which are collated quarterly and shared with the creative industry sector to make positive change.
We've started a 'Creative Projects Register' to get an understanding of the types of projects that are being developed and what resources/investment is needed to bring them to life!
We're part of the state Regional Arts Network and speak with many organisations, funders and individuals looking to support or collaborate in creative projects. Using the Creative Projects Register we intend to connect project owners explore joint investment opportunities, amplify/grow projects or simply brainstorm concepts/future initiatives.
This is a free and democratic resource that adapts as the creative landscape changes. The sections and links you see are just examples of what is possible. We invite everyone to expand and build upon this structure to strengthen arts in our vast Mid West region.

Regional Arts Network
Looking to change the way the regional arts sector talk to each other, Regional Arts WA has partnered with strategically aligned local organisations to grow a Network of Hubs across the state.
The Hubs themselves engage and respond directly to their local communities by providing on-ground support for their needs. Their role is to increase local decision making, strengthening relationships with local governments and stakeholders, whilst seeking development opportunities for artists and arts workers within their communities.
By having Hubs then connect back to a state-wide Regional Arts Network, assists in building a sustainable and thriving ecosystem of connected creative regional communities who work together in collaboration.
The network is a Regional Arts WA initiative, proudly supported by Minderoo Foundation and The Ian Potter Foundation, with funding from the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund.
