Local Leadership Program
Country Arts WA is kicking off a new way for regional WA communities to connect, collaborate and create together – and you can be part of it! The Local Leadership Program will be launched in Margaret River and Broome this March. We’ll be supporting local people to build local teams, share local knowledge and drive local projects. Through a series of workshops, professional and peer coaching sessions you’ll develop skills to build the connected, creative communities we want to see throughout WA.
Registrations must be in by 1 March, so check out the details below and tell us about the awesome project you’ve got planned for your community.

Spaced #4 artists residency program – Call for expressions of interest from communities
The International Art Space (IAS) is seeking expressions of interest from WA regional organisations or community groups interested in hosting visiting national and international artists in their towns. Artists will participate in the fourth iteration of spaced, IAS’ signatory program of regional artists residencies.
Regarded as one of the most innovative art organisations in Australia, for over 20 years IAS has managed a program of regional artist residencies featuring distinguished contemporary artists from across the globe. Artists participating in IAS programs are invited to live and work in small towns for periods of up to three months. During their stay, artists consult with the community to develop an understanding of local people, landscapes and histories. Informed by this dialogue, artists create new artworks that are presented firstly to the local community and subsequently included in a large group exhibition to be held at a major art institution in Perth.
IAS will manage the residencies in partnership with the residency host and cover artists’ fees, travel and production costs.
