OUR mission statement

MADE ON THE LEFT was founded in 2008 by independent designers to support Western Australian creative talent. We hold bi-annual handmade craft markets to showcase local designers.

Being on the left hand side of Australia no longer

means you'll be at a disadvantage.

Our aim is to support all creative designers and events showcasing independent labels. MOTL is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organisation. You may wonder why we promote other markets besides MOTL; it’s because it’s not about us, its about you; the buyers and sellers of indie wares. Here at the blog, you’ll discover up to date information about our latest market, the low-down on some of Perth’s emerging talents, other opportunities for artists and designers and a little bit of fun stuff too. It’s all right here… welcome!

Curtin University Needs Survey Participants

Give WA arts a voice!
Understanding the Creative Workforce: A study of artists and arts practice

Curtin University are looking for 300 artists to help complete a survey about the way they work. They need artists, actors, writers, designers, musicians, street performers, dancers, sculptors, photographers, or anyone working in the creative industry to help. Through your completed survey, it is hoped more will be learnt about the role of artists, how they work and art’s critical role in society. The information will be used to boost the visibility of the Arts in WA, inform funding and skills development, and help to build a more sustainable creative workforce.

A few notes about the survey:

  • The survey can be done online at this link http://research.humanities.curtin.edu.au/creativeworkforce/ or via the facebook page – Creative Workforce WA
  • Hard copies are also available on request by email creativeworkforce@curtin.edu.au or by phoning Julie on 9266 4747
  • All surveys will be treated with the upmost confidentiality and any personal information will be de-identified
  • All participants will be in a draw to win a raft of prizes from local businesses
  • Anyone who completes a survey will receive feedback on the results if desired
  • Participants will also have the chance to have their story told in a book that will be published.
