Denmark Arts is the peak body for arts within the Shire of Denmark and also offers services throughout the Great Southern region and beyond. Denmark Arts runs two major festivals, Brave New Works community arts festival and the Denmark Festival of Voice as well as the very popular Denmark Arts Markets. Throughout the year we run a wide range of arts programs and projects as well as offering support to artists and community. We also provide art consultation within the region.
Our vision is to be a beacon of excellence in fostering regional community arts practice and providing an environment where creativity can flourish:
- To provide a service initiating, encouraging, inspiring, promoting, valuing and supporting the development of a diverse range of arts and cultural activity within Denmark and the Great Southern.
- To establish a creative arts hub centred within Denmark, which acts to nurture and inspire artistic exchange within and beyond the community.
- To assist people in Denmark and surrounding areas to recognise and move towards their full creative potential as and communities.
Denmark Arts is funded by the State Government through Country Arts WA; and the Shire of Denmark.
