March 2024 Outcomes




The Our Future Aboriginal Arts Worker Training Program supports Aboriginal arts workers living in regional and remote areas of WA to develop new skills and expand their arts sector knowledge.

The March 2024 program was held on Whadjuk Noongar Boodjar (Boorloo/Perth) participants had the opportunity to learn from, tour and explore some of Perth’s top arts and cultural institutions.

Participants were: Julieanne Farmer (Tjarlirli and Kaltukatjara Art), Sylvia Wilson (Martumili Artists), Monica Henry (Broome Circle & Bidyadanga Artists), Ruby Djikarra Alderton (Spinifex Hill Studio) and Rekeshia Goodwin (Spinifex Hill Studio).

We also had the privilege of providing learning and networking opportunities to Beverly Thomson from the Bunbury-based Noongar Arts Program who joined us for two days of the program.

The program provided participants with a wide variety of excursions, learning activities and networking opportunities, and included spending time with many industry professionals who shared their skills and knowledge with the group.

We thank our valued partners WA Museum and Art Gallery of WA for their continued support of the program.

We also thank the following organisations and arts professionals for being part of our March 2024 program: Andria Spencer from Nyungar Tours, Holmes à Court Gallery, Dandjoo Darbalung, Berndt Museum, Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery, Michael Bonner and Monique Bosshard Curby.
