Community Arts
Network WA

At CAN we know that arts transforms communities.
We bring artists, creatives and diverse communities together to share stories, learn from each other and make inspiring art.
Through this we’ve seen lives change and communities strengthened.
Our vision is for a just, diverse and resilient society fuelled by imagination and creativity.
Our purpose is to grow resilient communities through arts and creativity.

Our values are:

RESPECT – We honour the inherent worth of all people, cultures and the environment
SOCIAL EQUITY – We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to engage, participate and flourish
RESILIENCE – we foster connectedness through the arts for strong and thriving communities
CREATIVITY – we create art that inspires the sharing of culture and identity.

Within this context, the core functions of CAN are:

-To produce inspiring art with diverse communities
-To build connections and broker opportunities for artists and communities
-To build the capacity of artists, communities and partners with whom we work.
