Quiet Tuesdays initiative

The Art Gallery of Western Australia (AGWA), AGWA’s Voluntary Gallery Guides and the Autism Association of Western Australia partnered to support members of the community with Autism. The partnership aims to bring the disability and community sectors' expertise together to create more opportunities for inclusion in the arts and contribute to a more inclusive future for people with Autism and their families.

The partnership is the first program through AGWA’s Quiet Tuesday initiative. This initiative is designed to provide access opportunities to community groups on Tuesdays, a day when the Gallery is closed to the general public. The closure allows the Gallery to offer a quiet, desensitised experience for individuals who may require a different environment to appreciate and access the State Art Collection.

On Saturday 27 August, the Gallery is open 10am-3pm only as we prepare for the AGWA Foundation Gala supporting women in the arts. Some exhibition access will be disrupted with two Tracks We Share ground floor galleries closed. AGWA Rooftop bar will be closed, reopening at 2pm Sunday. Details
