The creative industries are the parts of our economy where creative skills are at the fore: visual arts, design and architecture; film, TV and radio; advertising and marketing; music and performing arts; writing, publishing and print media; digital media; heritage and culture; community festivals and events.

Arts OutWest supports the creative industries through: Professional development opportunities; Networking events (including our Winter Arts Networking Nights and supporting the Rural Arts Symposiums in Forbes); Advice and information; International opportunities (including our 2013 UK Exchange project with Wirksworth Festival in the UK); Promotion of events; Contributing to research and advocacy; and Co-managing the Kew Y Ahn Aboriginal Art Gallery.
