Working together

THREE West Australian business-arts partnerships have reached the finals of the 2002 Australian Business Arts Partnership Awards.

The three finalists from WA are Deckchair Theatre and the Fremantle Football Club, Awesome Arts and Woodside Energy, and Wesfarmers Arts.

Both partnerships are finalists in the Bytecraft Innovation Award, which recognises partnerships that develop new ways of meeting both partners’ needs.

Australian Business Arts Foundation (AbaF) WA manager Henry Boston said the three WA finalists were an indicator of the growing nexus between business and the arts.

“The fact that we have two finalists in the Bytecraft Innovation Award category is testimony to the level of creativity in the WA cultural and corporate sectors,” he said.

The success of WA in the inaugural awards last year has helped the 2002 national awards attract an increased number of entries from WA, Mr Boston said.

There were 28 entries from WA this year, a significant increase on 2001, which means entries from this State represent 15 per cent of the national total.

BankWest managing director Terry Budge recently accepted an invitation to join the AbaF as a councillor in the WA chapter.

AbaF WA chair Wayne Osborn said the addition of a financial institution to the Chapter provided the chapter with a powerful advocacy tool.
