The Benefits of ArtSouthWA Membership
Throughout the year we promote our members through the listing in our directory on this website. We utilise Facebook, Instagram and our E-Newsletter to keep you up to date with ArtSouthWA happenings and opportunities. As a member you will have access to our Facebook pages – ArtSouth WA and the Southern Art & Craft Trail to keep informed of our activities and the activities of other relevant organisations. As a Member you are able to promote your exhibitions, workshops and opportunities. Just create and share your Facebook post with us. During the Southern Art and Craft Trail you will also be able to bring more attention to your business and arts practice by utilising our hashtags #arttrailwa and #artrailwa2021.
Or you can follow us on Instagram.
We also run professional skill development activities and workshops. Constant networking with other similar organisations means we are able to inform our Members of regional events and opportunities of interest too.
As ArtSouthWA grows in strength and stature, our members benefit from the exposure that the organisation receives. Members are able to cite their ArtSouthWA membership not only in their own promotions but as part of grant and funding applications. This gives them extra recognition of their commitment to the arts and/or their arts practice.
Our biggest promotion and support of members is through The Southern Art and Craft Trail. This 2 week event is held annually. This event promotes multiple venues throughout the region. These include studios, galleries, cafes, wineries and many others. The Art Trail venues host these varied exhibitions of our most talented artists and craftspersons within the region.
The 2021 Southern Art and Craft Trail is on from Saturday 25th September – Sunday 10th October.
