November 11, 2017

If you are like us and leave things until the last minute, you still have until tomorrow night to check out the very cool artworks of High Tide 17. You can get involved and design your own nautical flags with messages fit for 2100 or become a citizen of the Commonwealth of New Bayswater with your own passport, a fun little island set up by Jessee Lee Johns in the flooded Princess Chambers’ basement (4-6pm today and tomorrow).

Space can be folded!? Sound can be folded!?

14 May 2015
May 14, 2015

In our lunch break we popped into PSAS for the brilliant SpaceFolding SoundPlastic exhibition, part of this year’s Totally Huge New Music Festival. Walking through a labyrinth of light and sound you wonder – Are they connected? What do they mean? The exhibition has been evolving over the past weeks, including two performances which involved volunteers and the artist being wrapped in plastic. Read more →

A Good Looking Man’s Neighbourhood Sweat Shop

27 Nov 2013
November 27, 2013

Andrew Christie is A Good Looking Man and he teaches people how to work with wood. You could say he makes something out of nothing as he commonly uses old scrap wood that no one wants and he believes anyone who is willing can successfully learn basic wood working skills. I went to a workshop that he ran in Myre Fremantle and I made a stool and now a new piece of furniture adornes my house.

Freo Festival Opening at Kelp

25 Oct 2013
October 25, 2013

What a perfect night for the Freo Festival opening tonight. It was especially perfect, because it took place at Kelp, Freo’s much loved beach bar at Kidogo Arthouse down at Bather’s Beach. Kelp re-opened for the occasion for one night only, tonight. This reminded us again of how much we want to keep this bar – for more than one night. We want to smell the ocean, while sipping a cocktail, having a chat with friends, watching the sun set over Bather’s Beach, and listening to some great local musos play. This place is perfect, this place is Freo.
