The Chamber of Arts WA has been teetering for a number of months, faced with a restructure, unsure funding and a new business plan waiting in stasis in the wings.

A step was made in the right direction this week (Monday 16 October) when WA Minster for Culture and the Arts, Sport and Recreation, International Education and Heritage, David Templeman announced that funding for the Chamber has been secured, to the sum of $800,000 over two years.
