The Department of Culture & the Arts
DCA is the State Government agency responsible for the Government’s support of arts and culture in Western Australia.
DCA recognises the value of culture and the arts to the wider community. Culture and arts are fundamental to human existence – they are vital to our history, identity, creativity, expression of aesthetic meaning and our propensity for play and enjoyment. Culture and arts have the potential to improve all realms of human endeavour. Activities that engage, analyse, develop and challenge cultural norms are crucial to sustained development and social well-being.
The Australia Council is a service organisation enriching the life of the nation by supporting and promoting the arts. Its primary responsibility is to help create an environment which encourages the creativity and development of Australian artists, and which provides greater access to arts and cultural activities for all Australians.
The City of Fremantle
The City of Fremantle’s support for culture assists in the maintenance of a vibrant and distinct community life which is enjoyed by residents and visitors. Fremantle owes its unique identity, in part, to its involvement in the arts and the creative expressions of the many artists who live and work in the community.
