“I feel great growth in my leadership capabilities as a result of the Regional Arts Network Creative Leadership Program. When I first started with the Junction, I participated in the foundational modules. Then I organised the module 3 complex leadership session facilitated by Dr Shona Erskine, in Newman 2022, for the Junction and Martumili teams. The course provided an opportunity to navigate real-life scenarios, work as a team to evaluate current leadership practices, and gain creative leadership theoretical knowledge. These skills were utilised when working with stakeholders to coordinate the new Pilbara Creative Disability Inclusion Program.

Leslie Rigot, Regional Coordinator

The Junction strive to empower regional creative industries. The Pilbara Creative Disability Inclusion Program is a social inclusion program, developed in partnership with regional disability service providers, that builds individual and collective capacity, skills and knowledge for those living with a disability. The wholistic program provides weekly creative workshops to EPIC and Roebourne Regional Prison, professional development for carers, alongside the development of a disability inclusion resource for arts workers.
