The Vasse Art Award (VAA) launched in 2004 as a fundraiser for a small country primary school and has since grown to become one of the largest art exhibitions in regional Western Australia.

With support from event partners Vasse Development/Hanson Property and Bendigo Bank as well as generous local sponsors, the exhibition and competition continue to attract renowned and emerging artists from across the country.

Funds raised since the VAA’s inception have helped the Vasse Primary School to develop its middle school playground, provide smart boards in classrooms, install a roof between demountable classrooms, and to help refurbish the school canteen.

The VAA remains a vital component of the school community and learning programs, fostering creativity and self-expression among students.
