The Aboriginal Art Centre Hub of Western Australia (AACHWA) works with Aboriginal art centres across Western Australia to assist them to be seen, heard, respected and represented. We are the only Indigenous visual arts peak body based in Western Australia.

Please take a look around our website to learn more about WA's Aboriginal art centres and AACHWA. You can also use this site to find useful information, links, opportunities and publications.

Thank you for visiting the AACHWA website and for supporting ethical practice in the Aboriginal art market.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the traditional custodians of this country and its waters. We wish to pay respect to the elders past and present and extend this to all Aboriginal people.
