WA arts and culture research

The culture and arts sectors develop imagination and innovation, and contribute to the artistic development, debate and experience of the Western Australian community. 

Engagement in culture and the arts has the capacity to enrich and transform individuals, communities, environments and WA. It is essential to our personal and community growth and invokes a sense of belonging. 

On this page you will find a broad overview and key statistics on WA’s values and attitudes towards culture and the arts, audience segmentation, art and cultural production.
