Always was. Always will be.

ART ON THE MOVE would like to acknowledge the First Nation’s Peoples are the traditional custodians of this land and we pay our respects to the Elders both past, present and future for their unique contribution to the cultural life of communities across Australia.

I Understand

Encouraging connections and fostering a sense of belonging and creativity

CONNECT – ENGAGE – UNDERSTAND – BELONG

We’re an invisible, yet critical function between art, people and place.

Learn what we do

ART ON THE MOVE is Western Australia’s only organisation dedicated to touring contemporary visual art exhibitions across the regions, interstate and beyond.

We do this by touring quality contemporary art with appropriate learning and development opportunities that speak to and develop the unique cultural narratives of communities whatever the cultural practice, age, ability, and engagement with culture.
