Welcome to Wheatbelt Arts & Events Inc.
WHEATBELT ARTS & EVENTS Inc. (formerly York Arts & Events, Inc.) was established in 2017 to foster community engagement in arts and cultural activities and to run events such as The York Festival.
We are a membership based, not-for-profit incorporated association, thriving on a community of volunteer involvement and participation.
Wheatbelt Arts & Events Inc is committed to making a positive contribution to our town and to bringing the arts to the local and wider community. We invite established and emerging artists to contribute to its programs and exhibitions.
One of our long term objectives is to establish a Community Arts & Culture Centre, which would offer learning and skills training for all age groups for things not already being offered in York. This could include Printmaking, jewellery, painting, drawing, languages, Noongar culture, exhibitions, perhaps a community garden, courses, workshops and other activities, in addition to hosting arts and cultural events. We would not want to replicate services already being offered in the York community and would love to hear from you if you have some great ideas and suggestions to make.
We see the old Convent School as an ideal building for a Community Arts & Culture Centre. Its location next to Peace Park and the amenities it already has make it particularly suitable for this purpose. Over the next twelve months, we will be working to develop a feasibility study and a plan to fund such a project.
Supporting the establishment of Community Arts & Culture Centre is just one of the many benefits of becoming a member of York Arts & Events Inc.
