For the last 30 years, PICA has played a vital role in the development and presentation of contemporary arts in Western Australia. In this time, it has continued to evolve and respond to the needs and desires of artists and audiences while playing a leadership role in the development of art forms as well as the contextualising of local and global practices.

PICA is renowned for the rigour, breadth and accessibility of its artistic and engagement programs, its high production standards and innovative presentation methods. It places a high value on the work undertaken by artists and distinguishes itself as a creative partner as well as a facilitator of cultural experiences. Its programs are carefully crafted, ensuring conversations not only between artists and audiences but across art forms, cultures and geographies. 

For artists, audiences and other communities it serves, PICA is a source of inspiration, a resource, a meeting and gathering place, a provocateur and most importantly a partner in the realisation of big and new ideas.
