The Honourable Kim Beazley,
AC Governor of Western Australia
Advocating for the State as a rich and vibrant arts, cultural and tourism destination is one of my priorities as Governor, so I am delighted to be the new Patron of the Margaret River Readers & Writer’s Festival.
The Festival is an important event that contributes significantly to the arts scene in regional WA. It has grown from a grass-roots initiative to one which plays an important role in the promotion of new ideas, debate and discussion and the sharing of Western Australian stories within that.
The cultural, economic and social benefits that flow on from the Festival continue to increase and I am excited to be a part of its growth.
