Our political and economic relationships have created connections around the world and placed our people at the centre of global trading markets, and at the fore of international science and research. We have been participants in major wars and conflicts, humanitarian efforts and leaders in social change. Our isolation has fuelled our creative and cultural industries and created experts in innovation, resources and industry. Global connections and relationships will continue to frame us as a State, and the New Museum will be a place where you will be able to discover the strong cultural and creative bonds WA has forged with the rest of the world.
