RACIP's Leveraged Creative and Cultural Planning Program funds regional local governments to develop creative and cultural plans and implementation of activities. Projects promote the value of arts, culture and heritage and facilitate activities that foster regional creative and cultural industries.
Launched by the State Government in 2019, the RACIP acknowledges the importance of culture and arts programs in regional and remote Western Australia. It continues to focus on delivering social inclusion, accessibility and employment opportunities
in regional WA — receiving an additional $5 million in the 2021 State Budget to extend the program.
Funded projects include:
Further to this, the Shire of Harvey ($48,450) will develop a Creative Communities Strategy and the Shire of Morawa ($20,000) will develop a Morawa Culture and Arts Plan.
The RACIP is delivered by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC, with funding from the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development). Since 2019 the RACIP has injected almost $13 million into arts and culture
in regional and remote WA.
