Our Strategy

Always one step ahead

In an ever changing environment, The Junction Co. are agile to ensuring exhibitions, art+craft programming and creative development reach those who need it most, our regional communities. 

The Junction Co. have developed a program framework to capacity-build regional creatives and provide platforms for the broader community to engage with the creative industries.

There are two distinct facilitated learning pathways for creatives to extend their knowledge and skill growth through formal and informal education points: Creative Enterprise and Artistic Excellence.

You can access our support via online tutorials hosted on this website (head over to What’s Happening to engage), connect with other artists and creative enterprises via our Facebook groups, or participate in person at selected sites across the Pilbara, including the Port Hedland Courthouse Gallery+Studio.

Artist in residence

Jacky Cheng

Jacky’s work is fundamentally about identity and awareness through cultural activities and memories of home; country and relationships. She works across several mediums incorporating her philosophy of ‘slow art’ – a visual participatory, most notably through paper bas-relief sculptures. Her introduction into the manipulation of paper was highly influenced by her elders on cultural practices and duties performed for Chinese Ritual purposes. She has since amalgamated both architectonic and visual language using papers and fibres as the predominant mediums in her practice. Her award winning manual hand-cut paper enchantment is featured in ABC Makers and Creators segment ‘The Paper Cutter’, ABC Arts – ‘How art changed my life’ as well as numerous art feeds and articles locally and internationally.
Jacky was born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She received her Bachelor of Architecture (Honours 1) from University of New South Wales, Sydney. She has since pursued her love for creating and making in smaller scales and the education sector.

Her teaching accolades includes both state and national awards in Best Trainer/Teacher of the Year in Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector bestowed by the prestigious Australia Training Awards as well as a finalist for the Curtin University Teaching Excellence Award by Awards Australia.
