|The Aboriginal Art Centre Hub of Western Australia (AACHWA) is a peak advocacy and resource agency servicing seven art centres across 32 communities. In total, they represent 450 artists located in the Great Southern, Mid West, Goldfields and Pilbara regions of Western Australia. |
AACHWA’s mission is to support Aboriginal art in Western Australia by offering professional development opportunities and providing services and resources that enable the sustainability and growth of art in remote communities. It is part of the national network of peak bodies that support and voice the interests of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
AACHWA was established in 2009 and encompasses seven member art centres. These include Spinifex Arts Project in Tjuntjarra Community, Martumili Artists in Newman, Tjukurba Gallery in Wiluna, Roebourne Art Centre in Roebourne, Yamaji Art in Geraldton, Wirnda Barna Artists in Mt. Magnet and Mungart boodja Art Centre in Katanning.
Currently, AACHWA is a project of Country Arts Western Australia, hoping to become an independent Aboriginal corporation in the next two years. AACHWA is guided by an Aboriginal advisory group composed of representatives from each of the member art centres.
