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.
