We encourage anyone considering entering to take the plunge, the effort and experience is absolutely worthwhile.”

From an avid awards goer, the WSABE awards, I would have to say are the pinnacle of any awards program for business success”

To win the Excellence in Arts and Culture Award for the second year in a row is deeply validating especially as they coincide with the two hard years of COVID. Within and without the organisation it confirms we are making the difference we hope to achieve, galvanising us into a common purpose. For every member of the team, the over 100 artists we employ, the over 70 partners we work with, the recognition of the excellence we achieve through our programs and for the people we serve energises us to continue to provide the platform for our stories to be told and celebrated.
