The Committee for Perth invites the arts and culture sector, the Western Australian Government and other political parties, the business and philanthropic sectors and Local Government Authorities to commit to work through this Cultural Compact together for 10 years to revitalise our capital city and regional cities and towns to achieve:

Key Findings
  • A vibrant state where arts and cultural appreciation and activity is part of everyday life for all Western Australians
  • Acknowledgement of the importance of Aboriginal culture and the arts to the future fabric of Western Australia
  • The engagement of young artists who choose to stay, return to, or visit – because they are encouraged and supported within an incubator environment
  • A dynamic capital city that all Western Australians are proud of
  • Bold and courageous art that places WA firmly on the international stage
Acknowledgement of Country

The Committee For Perth acknowledges the traditional custodians throughout Western Australia and their continuing connection to the land, waters and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures; and to Elders both past and present.
