Denmark Arts' 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 individuals and communities.

Denmark Arts is funded by the State Government through Regional Arts WA; and the Shire of Denmark and has been an important and vibrant part of the community for 40 years.
