The Department of Culture and the Arts commitment is focussed on enriching lives of all Western Australians by supporting the arts and cultural sectors to provide unique and transforming experiences.
With a broad canvas of responsibilities, Western Australia’s Department of Culture and the Arts supports the impetus for the creation and consumption of artistic endeavours and cultural experiences in the state.
The Culture and Arts portfolio includes the Art Gallery of WA, the Perth Theatre Trust, ScreenWest, the State Library, the State Records Office and the WA Museum, along with the Department’s policy development and funding role. Collectively, the portfolio works to achieve a vibrant, sustainable and accessible arts sector, while protecting and promoting the state’s natural, cultural and documentary collections.
The Department’s vision paints a picture of a Western Australian community enriched by unique and transforming encounters. Whether individuals choose to be creators, participants, or simply observers in artistic or cultural encounters, these interactions enhance community wellbeing, while influencing and shaping the state’s distinctive personality.

The Greens (WA) is a member of the Australian Greens, one of the many Green political parties worldwide.
Green parties have an expansive vision that challenges the narrow economic focus of the major parties. Green parties are often misrepresented as single issue parties. However, our vision of the future is based on the four interconnecting pillars of social justice, ecological sustainability, peace and nonviolence, and participatory democracy.
The Greens (WA) was established in 1990 following the merger of the WA Green Party and the Green Earth Alliance, which was itself the product of an earlier merger between the Alternative Coalition, the Vallentine Peace Group and Green Development. All these groups drew inspiration from the West German Greens (as they then were) as well as the many successful community campaigns in WA and throughout Australia.
The Greens (WA) worked closely with the Australian Greens but did not become formal members until 2003 when The Greens (WA) held a ballot of all the membership on the question of formally joining the Australian Greens confederation. There was an eighty per cent vote in favour. On the 11th of October 2003 at the Australian Greens National Conference the Greens (WA) were formally accepted as members of the Australian Greens.
The Greens WA have a growing and vibrant membership which continues to work towards embedding our four pillars in political decision making at local, State and Federal government levels.
The Australian Labor Party is Australia's oldest political party.
The Australian Labor Party was founded by the trade union movement on the
principle that collective action is the best way to improve the circumstances of
working people in the community.
