Arts and Events in the Pilbara

Regional Arts WA acknowledges the Aboriginal people of the Pilbara as the traditional custodians. We are thankful to be on this country and acknowledge the Elders past, present and emerging. We respect and celebrate the continuing contribution of Aboriginal Australians to culture and the arts.

The Pilbara is 507,896 square kilometres of classic Australian outback, strewn with rugged gorges, secluded waterfalls and some of the Earth’s oldest rock formations. The region is a hotspot for travellers, both for business and leisure – with the population of roughly 66,300 residents growing by a further 50,000 when travelling workers are included.

We value these ancient systems and understand that they are thriving, evolving and will empower and enhance all Australians.
