Wesfarmers Arts - Principal Partner
Our Principal Partner, Wesfarmers Arts leads the way in our community through their diverse support of art and cultural events and programs. An inaugural financial supporter of AGWA since 1990 and AGWA's Principal Partner. The relationship between AGWA and Wesfarmers Arts is continually evolving and is distinctive for its collaborative endeavours and for the range and depth of benefits enjoyed by both parties. Wesfarmers understand the distinction and importance of both corporate philanthropy and corporate sponsorship. This is demonstrated through being one of the four lead corporate donors contributing a million to the Gallery Foundation's TomorrowFund in 2008, and through Wesfarmers Arts renewal and as AGWA’s Principal Partner. Wesfarmers Arts annual support facilitates AGWA’s twice daily, free guided Wesfarmers Arts tours where AGWA's expert Gallery guides share aspects and insights of the State Collection and touring exhibitions with the WA public and visitors to our state. The partnership also supports public programs in our Imagination Room and facilitated the recent refurbishment of two spaces where works from Wesfarmers’ esteemed collection are featured.
