Annual Reports

Message from Michael Campbell: Executive Director, WestWords

As we ended a difficult 2020 I was hopeful that the year ahead would offer a new start, a chance for a re-energised program.  However that was not what 2021 had in store for us. The year was characterised by multiple pivots as we responded to the changing impacts of new COVID variants, lengthy lockdowns, rapidly changing health guidelines, levels of risk for the writers, partners, staff, audiences and collaborators, and artists getting COVID.  We found the understanding and collaboration of all of our writers, collaborators and partners sustaining. In the face of the tenuousness, the arts sector and those who support it revealed their generosity. Despite a challenging year WestWords enjoyed significant success. In 2021 we ran:

  • 244 activities, facilitated by 152 writers and allied artists.
  • 20,984 people directly participated in our programs, with a reach nationally and internationally of over 528,500.

At the 2021 Western Sydney Awards for Business Excellence WestWords’ achievements were recognised, winning the Commonwealth Bank Excellence in Arts & Culture award for the second year in a row. I personally was awarded the 2021 Outstanding Business Leader Award. Please enjoy reading our Annual Report
