⭐ Meet our June Artist of the Month - Miranda Plum!

When Carnarvon artist Miranda Plum decided to quit her corporate job, she jumped at the chance to work at a gallery. All she had to do was send in the application and answer one simple question: Why do you want to work here?

Can creativity ease climate anxiety in children? | Space 22

Check out this ABC TV + iview feature on Southern Forest Arts's Home: Sculptural Habitats. Can creativity ease climate anxiety in children?

This community project engaged artist Peter Hill to work with local schools in creating a series of new installations for the Understory Art & Nature trail in Northcliffe.

Together, they took on the sense of powerlessness many young people feel in the face of climate change, and embraced the power of affirmative action - one habitat-creating artwork at a time!

Be Brave. Make Change. National Reconciliation Week runs from 27 May to 3 June and is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

The National Reconciliation Week theme, “Be Brave. Make Change.” is a challenge to all Australians to be brave and tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation so we can make change for the benefit of all Australians. You can help by taking brave actions in your daily life, not just during National Reconciliation Week – but during every week of the year.

Check out this list of resources we have compiled to help you spread the word: https://regionalartswa.org.au/news/national-reconciliation-week-2022/

Regional Arts WA congratulates the Australian Labor Party on its election success and readiness to form government, as well as commend their commitment to the Uluru Statement from the Heart.

In the lead up to the election, we ran an advocacy campaign emphasising the importance of regional arts and culture across our state. With the support of our members, we talked to regional candidates about the work undertaken by our sector and how it is struggling without a long-term, more considered approach to connecting communities with a sense of belonging; enriching lives with creative inspiration and insight; and fostering mental, physical, social and economic wellbeing.

We look forward to working with the incoming Federal Government in continuing these essential conversations and instilling a clear roadmap for regional arts and culture.

Eneabba Primary School welcomed our eighth Ebb+Flow artist-in-residence, Sue Helmot in February. The children enjoyed a colour filled soilscapes painting workshop, where they explored the soil under our feet and imagined what tiny creatures live a magical secret life down there. They also created a 'soilsphere' and explored the concepts of colours, textures and structures. Thank you to @Act Belong Commit for another great school incursion! The Ebb + Flow series of residencies are being undertaken by North Midlands Project in partnership with the Regional Arts WA network.
