WA Arts Sector Development

Providing exceptional opportunities for Western Australian artists

Perth Festival invests heavily in the professional development of our own talented arts community. We invite our visiting artists to work side-by-side with our community to share their craft and knowledge, to learn from us and take that teaching back to their own creative communities. We believe that this is integral in not just building sustainability here, but in building far reaching networks that feed both out to the world and back into the State.

Through a year-round program of artist talks, masterclasses, workshops and internships, as well as the Perth Works series, Perth Festival directly supports and strengthens the local arts sector.

Our Arts Sector Development initiatives engage deeply across all areas of the Festival’s program and operations, providing participants with invaluable experiences within a large-scale festival environment.

Your donation will support the professional development, training, and mentoring of WA artists, producers, technicians and students. By investing in our Arts Sector Development program you will help us launch the next generation of WA’s cultural leaders.
