Arts Margaret River is a not-for-profit community organisation that exists to support and nurture the work of artists across all disciplines, and to foster a love of the arts within the community.

Our primary funding from the AMR Shire and Lotterywest enables us to pay some of our running costs, but the breadth of our program is dependent on our ticket income, our sponsors and our generous donors.

The signature event for us remains our iconic Readers & Writers Festival. The festival is growing in popularity every year. 

It takes many hours – and costs a bomb – to make a festival look easy, but we do it because it is an important part of our community. As a regional festival, the costs associated with presenting the program are mammoth – not just for artistic content, but also for the many activities that give back financially to our community.

If you like the work we’re doing and want to support the growth of the festival and the production of Heather Locke’s forthcoming 50th Anniversary Book, please consider making a donation. 

Your support is vital in helping us to continue to encourage, support and celebrate the Readers and Writers Festival, and the entire program of Arts Margaret River, in 2023 and beyond.

Thank you.
