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!

The City of Stirling is seeking expressions of interest from artists interested in hosting workshops, installations or activities for the upcoming local event titled ‘Illuminate’ to occur on Saturday 30 March 2013 from 5pm – 9pm. The City will provide up to $5,000 for one large scale project, or smaller amounts for workshops or small installations.

The 'Illuminate' community event will include a range of activities for the whole family including lantern making, craft activities for the kids, games, fire shows, plus a glow ride will take place around the lake.

The theme is celebration of light and community interaction - all things glowing, luminary, bright or colourful should be incorporated into any ideas. As a sub theme, ideas that incorporate Easter are also welcomed, as the event falls on the Easter long weekend.

Date: Saturday 30 March 2013
Time: 5.00pm – 9.00pm
Venue: Lake Gwelup, Gwelup
Contact: 9205 8555
