The North Midlands Project, an arts group based in the southern Mid West, will receive $170,000 each year from the State Government under the Arts Organisations Investment Program (AOIP).

The organisation was one of six from across the state added to the program following an announcement from Minister for Culture and the Arts David Templeman.

“It was an extremely competitive round but I’m delighted to see six brand new entrants in the mix - Fremantle Biennale, Centre for Stories, Mundaring Arts Centre, North Midlands Project, CIRCUSWA and Theatre Kimberley,” Mr Templeman said.

In total, $56 million will be shared among 37 groups from 2023 to 2026 after the Government increased the AOIP’s budget by $3.5 million per year.

“The AOIP aims to build a strong WA art, cultural and creative sector to support and promote the vibrancy of our State and to ensure this is celebrated locally, nationally, and internationally,” the minister said.
