The Department of Culture and the Arts supports the development and delivery of culture and the arts in Western Australia through the provision of funding to individual artists and organisations, devolved funding through selected organisations, and partnerships with Commonwealth, State and local government agencies. DCA’s funding programs aim to foster creativity and engagement with the arts through support for projects and programs demonstrating imagination and innovation, those that contribute to the artistic development, debate and experience of the Western Australian community, and those that increase opportunities for Western Australians to participate, access and engage with unique arts and culture experiences.
