our work depends on the support of meaningful, long-term partnerships
What we look for in a partner
Shared vision, respect for each other's skills, and mutual trust; most importantly, a desire to collaborate toward a prosperous future for Western Australia's long-term artistic, cultural and social wellbeing.
The successful 13 year cross-sector partnership between BHP and FORM is one that nurtures innovative approaches to the challenging issue of sustainable regional development. The knowledge and skills contributed by each partner have served to foster outcomes that would be difficult to achieve for either partner alone. At the same time, the increasing recognition of the integral value of ‘culture’ in sustainable development brings to focus the merit, richness, and potential of this type of partnering – which can serve as a model for cultural development. The long standing relationship is a leading exemplar of the power of meaningful partnerships to empower communities, enable people and transform opportunity in our State.
