In conjunction with Regional Arts WA the KingKira Next Level Arts Fellow 2022-23 supports young emerging regional artists and arts workers aged between 18-26 to build skills so they can develop and sustain an arts career in regional Western Australia.

KingKira and Regional Arts WA are happy to announce that the recipient of the inaugural KingKira Next Level grant is Joo Tan from Port Hedland. Joo is an emerging curator and currently the Coordinator at the Courthouse Gallery & Studio in Port Hedland. ​
As part of the grant, Joo will be mentored by established curator Anna Louise Richardson, where she will develop skills to curate her first exhibition working with Pilbara youth groups as part of the Open Borders project.

We are proud to be partnering with Regional Arts WA and the State Government to be part of the Next Level Regional program.
