The Catalyst Community Arts Fund program managed by CAN concluded in 2017.

Catalyst Community Arts Fund (1997-2017)

The Catalyst Community Arts Fund supported community-driven arts and culture activities that express local culture and identity and promote the values of community empowerment, social inclusion, respect for diversity and self-determination. Projects funded through Catalyst assist the WA community to learn new skills and experience and participate in the arts. CAN managed the Catalyst Community Arts Fund between 1997 – 2017. We managed Catalyst on behalf of the State of Western Australia through the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.
