Our Future: Aboriginal Arts Worker Training Program


The Our Future: Aboriginal Arts Worker Training Program aims to support Aboriginal arts workers in regional and remote Western Australia by providing practical training and real-world on-the-job experience. This training program broadens participants’ perspectives in the arts and helps them develop new skills, which they can apply when they return to an art centre context. It supports emerging arts professionals to develop their knowledge and skills across a broad spectrum of arts and cultural specialisations.
