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!

Colosoul Art Exhibition: Opportunity




COLOSOUL GROUP INC. are holding a fundraiser for the children at the Princess Margaret Hospital Burns Unit.

Colosoul Magazine is an independent youth magazine dedicated to raising awareness about contemporary issues that WA youth are dealing with. Colosoul is designed for young people by young people, who are given the opportunities to excel in the media arts by producing a fresh and vibrant magazine.

In holding this event, we aim to not only provide a platform for emerging WA artists to exhibit and sell their artwork, but to also generate awareness of the obstacles the children at the PMH Burns Unit overcome and to raise money for the unit to go towards better and more resources.

The art works will be by emerging WA artists who will receive 20% of the sales. 60% of the money raised will be given as a donation to the Burns Unit at PMH. The remaining 20% will go back into the mentorship program at Colosoul Group Inc.
