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!

Call Out for 2014 Creative Challenge Artists

AWESOME Arts is calling out for contemporary artists who have experience working with children and young people in diverse and complex communities.

Skills in facilitating storytelling would be ideal for our 2014 theme Shaping Stories, which has been devised in partnership with the State Library of Western Australia.

Creative Challenge is AWESOME’s year round artist-in-residency program that celebrates the bright young things living in regional and remote Western Australia. Two artists take residence in each community for two weeks to share their knowledge and skills. The program is process-driven, involving participants in research, conceptual development, and creation of artwork that communicates the uniqueness of their community.

These residencies aim to spark creative play, independent thinking, and story telling, with our key aspiration being to give voice to young West Australian’s living in regional and remote communities. The program is renowned for offering high quality arts experiences, encouraging young people to consider their individual and collective community identity.

Are you up to the challenge? If you’re an artist and want to become involved please email 
ccd@awesomearts.com or call (08) 9328 9666 or visit the website and download an artist application kit today. Deadline for applications is 5pm Friday 31 Jan 2014.
