In a collaboration between regional and metro arts organisations in WA, aspirations for a Regional Arts Triennial have been established with the success of two key event cycles delivered by Southern Forest Arts, Art On The Move and the John Curtin Gallery.

The aspiration is to continue a cycle of curatorial mentorships, creative opportunities and interconnected regional group exhibitions, culminating in a Perth-based survey exhibition followed by a compact survey tour to regional venues.
