The department is responsible for developing and promoting culture and the arts in Western Australia.
We distribute grants and funding to support vibrant and sustainable arts, culture and creative industry sectors.
Funding provides artists, creatives, arts groups and organisations to undertake a range of projects and activities across multiple artforms, including events and festivals.
Artforms include performing arts, visual arts, community arts, design, literature and writing, interactive arts, multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary.
Investment in arts and culture is essential to ensure Western Australians have ongoing access to arts and culture activities.
The department is promoting its successful grant and funding recipients through an ongoing promotional campaign called ‘Showcase’.
‘Showcase’ will profile the creativity, skill and talent of artists and arts organisations in Western Australia through media, social media platforms and outdoor screens across the city.
Western Australians are proud of their culture and the arts sector and through Showcase we hope they can continue to marvel at the creations made in WA.
