The Blackwood River Arts Trail (BRAT) is returning in 2023, even bigger and better! The shires of Boyup Brook, Nannup, Bridgetown-Greenbushes & Balingup combine once again to feature local artists from across the Blackwood River Valley. In 2023 we will again present additional art forms, such as film and theatre, to our offerings. We are thrilled to announce the return of Blackwood River Film Festival that will show short films created by Australian film makers and watch this space for additional specialty events.

Become a member of Blackwood River Art Trail Inc. and join our happy artists!
