Applications are now open for Western Plains Cultural Centre’s Homeground 2021 professional development program. Designed for emerging artists who are wanting to expand their skills and who have the potential to extend their practice and benefit from the experience of working within our professional Gallery.

Successful Artists will collaborate and work alongside a curator experiencing all facets of the exhibition process: including a formal opening and/or artist talk; studio visits; and a range of promotional activity. Artists must live and/or practice within the highlighted red zone to be eligible to apply for the HomeGround program.

Homeground holds a dedicated exhibition space within the Western Plains Cultural Centre Gallery, enabling emerging regional artists living and/or practicing in the Central West Region of NSW each year to grow and develop within the arts sector through participating in this development programme.
