A voice for vibrant, culturally strong and sustainable Western Australian art centres
AACHWA works for and with WA Aboriginal Art Centres to celebrate the strength of our art and culture by:
Promoting: we are a strong voice for art centres
Empowering: we encourage best practice, facilitate targeted training opportunities and encourage leadership within younger generations
Connecting: we build strong networks with members and partners
