At the Art Gallery of Western Australia we are dedicated to providing diverse and accessible programming for all ages. Our workshops, tours and professional development opportunities provide access to the State Art Collection and offer a wide range of experiences and opportunities for 21st Century Learners.

Genuine creativity, emotional intelligence and critical thinking are becoming increasingly required skills for The Future of Jobs. At AGWA we are engaged in ongoing research, consultation, and the development of new pedagogies that prioritise critical inquiry, imagination and personal reflection.

Below you will find information about MAKING and RESPONDING excursions and Professional Development opportunities at AGWA.
