Outer Metro Arts Grant Program

Supports outer metropolitan local governments to partner with high-calibre arts or community organisations to increase participation in, and access to, arts and culture in their communities.

The program builds on local creative strengths and complements existing programs to maximise participation and community relevance.
The program will prioritise projects that engage communities: 
  • experiencing socio-economic disadvantage 
  • in growth corridors 
  • with limited or low access to arts and cultural programs 
  • reflecting diverse communities in outer metropolitan Perth.


The 2020 pilot program is open to eight outer metropolitan local governments:
  • City of Armadale
  • City of Kalamunda
  • City of Kwinana
  • Shire of Mundaring
  • City of Rockingham
  • City of Swan
  • City of Wanneroo
  • Shire of Serpentine-Jarrahdale.
