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!

Summerset Festival 2013 - Expressions of Interest

Summerset is calling all creative types!

“Our vision is to showcase the unique lifestyle and diversity of the City of Stirling through a range of free and low cost events and activities that celebrate our heritage, art, music and culture.” 

Are you an artist, a venue or part of a community organisation? Do you have an idea, or an existing project that you would love to showcase to a wider audience, with the possibility of FREE publicity?

The City of Stirling is currently calling for visual and/or performing artists and organisations to showcase, exhibit or perform in the City’s biggest community arts celebration, the 2013 Summerset Arts Festival! The festival attracts over 30,000 people across a range of events and activities all jam packed into 3 weeks in February!

They are seeking expressions of interest from groups and individuals skilled in the areas of dance, music, theatre, visual and performing arts, projects, workshops and/or installations that are unique, inclusive and professional and best support the Festival's vision. Preference will be given to local groups based within the City of Stirling. 

In exchange, The City of Stirling will provide marketing and promotion, assist with event management (where necessary) and in some circumstances, may also provide infrastructure or additional funding for the event or activity.  

Download the ‘Call for Expressions of Interest’  information and application pack, and get involved!. Check out the last two festival programs here.  Submit applications no later than 4.00pm Friday, 31 August, 2012.
