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.
Esperance Community Arts (ECA) is committed to supporting a strong network between arts organisations, artists, and other community groups in the region.
We offer mentoring and assistance with project planning, event promotion and funding application to our members and to other community groups engaged in arts-related activities. ECA facilitates and contributes to a variety of programs that help to increase participation in the arts by supporting individuals and groups to work together, to access local resources, to expand social networks, and to express creativity and local identity.
We also provide members with access to affordable space for small workshops and informal exhibitions at 67 Dempster Street Esperance, where we can promote the work of local artists and community groups. Our volunteers also run a shop space for over 50 local artists and craftspeople to display and and sell their work.
