AGWA 2015

a new year a new energy

20 February 2015

2015 represents the first year of a new direction for AGWA – driven by a refreshed vision and focus for the future. More will unfold in 2016 and following years, but I am greatly pleased by the first steps that we are undertaking in 2015.

From showcasing local talent to broadening our horizons by presenting the art of Australia alongside that of our international counterparts, to stimulating ideas and encouraging conversations, we strive to provide a hub for visual arts in WA. This unfolds through our diverse exhibitions and displays, which are all supported by a range of public programs, artist talks, panel discussions, education resources, and events such as ARTBAR.
