Our partnerships are focussed on driving the state's growth and vitality, increasing awareness of our environment and water sustainability and enabling greater community involvement in making WA a great place to live and invest.
Every drop tells a story
A customer’s new kitchen sink to celebrate the start of a new chapter in her life was one of many water stories donated to the WA edition of the award-winning Museum of Water, which made its debut at the 2017 Perth International Arts Festival.
Supported by Water Corporation, the Museum of Water travelled throughout Perth and Albany, collecting stories of West Australians’ special relationship with water.
The contributions will all go towards the new WA Museum’s permanent collection in 2018.
The premise of the Museum is simple: Choose some water that is precious to you, find something to put in it. We will keep it for you. So we invite you to consider your relationship with the world’s most indispensable liquid as we build the WA edition of the award-winning Museum of Water.
Museum of Water will be travelling across WA in 2017, collecting more water stories from our local community.
We are proud to contribute to the community and build long term relationships that benefit our customers and the environment right across WA.
Our key partnership focus areas are:
Supporting the growth of WA
Partnerships that support organisations who assist in developing future generations of young Australians through programs that increase their knowledge, life skills, opportunities, capacity and career prospects, while driving growth for WA.
The Clontarf Foundation exists to improve the education, discipline, self-esteem, life skills and employment prospects of young Aboriginal men and by doing so, equip them to participate more meaningfully in society. The Foundation uses the existing passion that Aboriginal boys have for football to attract them to attend an Academy.
Supporting the vitality of WA
Partnerships that allow us to enrich people's lives across WA by connecting them to creativity, culture and community spirit.
Black Swan State Theatre Company is Western Australia’s Flagship Theatre Company and one of Australia’s foremost theatre companies.

Black Swan actively engage with the community showing leadership and support for the development of the arts sector and are committed to developing programs and services to increase community participation and reach.

The West Australian Symphony Orchestra (WASO) is WA's largest and busiest performing arts company. WASO's vision is to touch souls and enrich lives through music.
Each year WASO reaches out into the community and gives people across the state and beyond the opportunity to experience the magic of classical music through concert performances, touring and education programs and other initiatives.
Our partnership with WASO is valuable to us as it allows for increased community activities and experiences in regional areas of WA and contributes to the vitality of the state.
Yirra Yaakin, which means ‘stand tall’ in Noongar language, is one of Australia’s leading Aboriginal performing arts organisations. Yirra Yaakin's priority is to ensure Aboriginal theatre keeps providing opportunities for Aboriginal artists at all levels of theatre creation and production.
Throughout the months of March to May 2014, Water Corporation partnered with Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company and the touring performance of Kep Kaatijin to a capacity schedule of schools in the metro area and the North West reaching over 3,000 students. This production is a collection of stories based on traditional Noongar knowledge and storytelling. Through traditional and contemporary myths and legends, Kep Kaatijin brings to life stories from the waterways of the South West of WA and the preciousness of water to the environment.
