The Kolyang Creative Hub is a significant event in the WA arts ecology that brings artists & industry-heads together, providing time and space to experiment, 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 led and artist responsive.
It offers space to think and explore.
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 3-week program facilitates interdisciplinary artistic practice sharing, creative developments, panels & conversations.
The 2022 edition will be the third of a trilogy – and this year’s activities and cohort will help determine the future shape and legacy of the broader Kolyang program.
The focus in 2022 will be the seeding and making of work, and enabling creative connections and exchanges amongst the cohort, and indeed the broader sector. Artists seeking selection will be asked to offer an idea or concept they would like to progress and interrogate during the Hub, or an aspect of their own artistic practice, and why the Hub offers the ideal environment for this to happen. We hope to have a mix of first-time and repeat participants this year, and a smaller cohort than previous editions.
We also encourage potential participants to consider applying for additional funds to support their ideas during the Hub.
