Our Business

Aboriginal Art Centre Forum

28 October – 1 November 2024
Goomburrup (Bunbury) WA

This year, from Monday 28 October to Friday 1 November, we look forward to having you join us on Wardandi Noongar Country in Goomburrup (Bunbury) for our annual forum, Our Business.

Our Business is open to all art centre artists, staff, managers, local government cultural workers and arts sector professionals who engage with Aboriginal artists and arts centres.

The program will kick-off with a day for AACHWA Members, followed by three days of workshops, and will conclude with a  symposium to celebrate and showcase the great work Aboriginal art centres and Independent Artists do! With focus on our shared future, the program will include practical training, shared learning, face to face networking and focused discussions.

To help us develop this year’s program, we invite you to take a few minutes to complete a short questionnaire that will shape this year’s content and gauge attendance numbers. Are there topics you wish to explore at the forum? We welcome your suggestions!

We look forward to having you join us at the 2024 Our Business forum. Let’s come together, learn from one another, and make the most of this valuable opportunity.


Workshops/Presentations for AACHWA Members: Monday 28 October. 

Professional Development: Tuesday 29 October – 31 October is suitable for artists, arts managers, arts sector professionals and local government cultural workers.
Symposium: Friday 1 November is open to all professionals who engage with Aboriginal artists and arts centres.
