Named after Sir William Schwenck Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan, the mission of the Gilbert and Sullivan Society is to entertain audiences in Western Australia and to create opportunities for performing artists through the musical theatre works of WS Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan.
WA Poets Inc was set up in 2006 following the success of the inaugural 2005 WA Spring Poetry Festival. It was apparent that Western Australian poets wanted an organisation dedicated to providing resources and services to poets and poetry.
