Next Collective members support a specific project, selected on an annual basis at the Next Collective Pitch Night.
AGWA presents three pitches for the members to choose from, for projects that can only be made possible with the support of the Next Collective. Projects can include new acquisitions, community programs, or exhibitions.
2022-2023 Next Collective voted to help fund AGWA’s participatory all-ages exhibition Exquisite Bodies showing at AGWA from December 2022 - November 2023.
2021-2022 In 2022 a series of free workshops were hosted for Aboriginal artists to impart new and invaluable skills in areas of arts administration such as arts law, copyright, and more.
2020-2021 AGWA’s first ever foyer mural wall by Emerging Australian First Nations artist Tyrown Waigana.
2019-2020 Artist-led creative learning project for independent artists and school children with celebrated Australian artist Andy Quilty.
Supporting AGWA, the State Art Gallery, and the important cultural role it plays in WA aligns with my personal values of supporting the arts and its vital contribution to societal health and wellbeing. In addition, the opportunities for connection, contribution, networking, and behind-the-scenes art experiences that being a Next Collective member offers, have been priceless.
