Artgold Membership

 
Kalgoorlie Boulder and the greater Goldfields is home to many talented artists, makers and producers.
 
As the peak body for Creative Industries in the Goldfields, Artgold seeks to create a community that everyone wants to be a part of. Artgold provides accessible arts opportunities, celebrates our sector's achievements, promotes arts & cultural events and supports the professional development of artists and arts workers through training workshops and provides advocacy and consultancy services.
 
Artgold represents our Creative Industries at every opportunity providing positive social and economic benefits for our community. By becoming a member of Artgold, it's not only a show of support for Creative Industries in the Goldfields but means that we can get to know you better and to share with you great opportunities for practising artists and arts workers.
