We feel that 2015 will be a major step in AGWA’s transition to becoming an art museum that is first and foremost vision-led and audience focused. It represents the first year of a new direction for AGWA – driven by a refreshed vision and focus for the future. More will unfold in 2016 and the following years, but we are pleased by the first steps that we are undertaking in 2015.

From showcasing local talent to broadening our horizons by presenting the art of Australia alongside that of our international counterparts, to stimulating ideas and encouraging conversations, we strive to provide a hub for visual arts in WA. This unfolds through our diverse exhibitions and displays, which are all supported by a range of public programs, artist talks, panel discussions, education resources, and events such as ARTBAR.

Our Purpose

To inspire our visitors and enrich Western Australia with great collections of art.

Strategic Objectives

AGWA's strategic objectives reflect its statutory obligations, outcomes desired by Government and a focus on delivering Our Vision. These objectives will strengthen AGWA's capacity to deliver art gallery services and enhance a national and international standing and performance.
