Congratulations to the three successful recipients of the Hyperlocal Showcase Fund.

The Artgold Hyperlocal Showcase ensures our talent from Kalgoorlie-Boulder is showcased during this world class event.

The Artgold Hyperlocal Showcase is an opportunity for Kalgoorlie-Boulder arts to join forces and cross the streams*. Let’s make locally-grounded forward-looking work that shakes the pit, stops us in our tracks and makes us say; wow, that’s our future and we did it right here in Kalgoorlie-Boulder!

The Artgold Hyperlocal Showcase  ensures our talent from Kalgoorlie-Boulder is showcased during this world class event. The fund has been made possible through the support of the Summit partners including one of our major partners the Department of Culture and the Arts.
