Arts West: Strategic Plan 2020-2022

At Arts West we believe we can make a profound contribution to the wellbeing of our community as a collective voice progressing the arts in the West, and supporting, sharing and advancing the creativity of local artists.

We believe the arts asks the hard questions and can bring about major social change. This is because the arts provide a different way of imagining the world, and in doing so they can raise awareness and prompt action on the major issues of our time, namely environmental change, social inequity and conflict.

At the core of Arts West is an Alliance of seven Arts organisation: 100 Story Building, cohealth Arts Generator, Footscray Community Arts Centre, Snuff Puppets, The SUBSTATION, Western Edge Youth Arts and Women’s Circus and a growing community of Creative Members made up of independent Artists, small companies and ensembles living and creating work in the West.
