The Kolyang Creative Hub is the singular event in the WA arts ecology that brings artists & industry-heads together, providing time and space to reflect, question, learn and share. It is a future-focused site for breaking down silos and knowledge-sharing within the sector: fostering critical thinking and developing innovative new ways of working.
Kolyang Creative Hub is many things.
It is artist responsive.
It creates space to think.
It is emergent and evolving.
It is a space for experimenting with practice, process and models.
It weaves the collective industry together.
It’s about advocacy.
It’s about self-determination.
It’s about making us stronger for the future.
Born in 2020 during COVID as a response to the lockdowns, the 4-week program has become an annual event to facilitate interdisciplinary artistic practice sharing, creative developments, panels & conversations.
With roots stretching deep into the wider sector, 35 independent artists were paid to attend in 2020, increasing to 62 artists in 2021 to develop and drive the content of the Hub to suit their diverse needs.
