Nine Streams in the Borna Malliji (Tree of Shadow) 2014

The newly established League of Extraordinary Makers (LEXM) is connecting inventors, creatives, entrepreneurs, and innovators. By joining forces, this allows industries to build beyond their limits and create projects never thought possible. Join us for LEXM’s regular sundowner sessions over drinks and nibbles to produce sparks and connect you to a series of bright and brilliant minds. 

This session, we are joined by Sohan Ariel Hayes, a visual artist internationally acclaimed for his large-scale multimedia installations, public projects, and performance collaborations. His site-responsive process works with drawing, projection and archival materials to invoke particular places, collective voices, and communities of labor.

Noted for an exquisite use of technology, his ephemeral environments create immersive experiences that poetically respond to the architectural presence and social history of their sites. Whether inhabiting a building four stories high or confined to the surface of a shell, the genesis of Hayes art extends outwards from the primary projection of heart and mind. 

This year Hayes worked closely with Zoe Atkinson to produce the visual design for 2019 Perth Festival epic opening event Boorna Waanginy, experienced by 230,000 visitors.

30 Foot Drop: Tapping in Part 1

52890041_627897904325994_2177954645668790272_n.jpg

*** This is part 1 of a three part workshop ***

In today’s crowded business world it is becoming harder to find the new niche for your products and services, but what if we told you that there is an ‘untapped’ population who have clear, persistent needs that are not being adequately fulfilled? This population spans the world and includes motivated customers with an estimated disposable income of $54 million (and growing!) Australia wide.

Here at 30 Foot Drop we have done the research and we’re ready to share our knowledge on how businesses can begin Tapping In. Come along to one of our workshops to find out more.

Tapping in Part 1 – Why Access and Inclusion is worth investing in and how your business can get 
its share

Researching a new market segment takes time – the most important and most limited resource you have. Thankfully, when it comes to people with a disability, 30 Foot Drop has done the research for you.

We’ve painstakingly combed through statistics, research and reports to determine their credibility and compiled them into an informative and entertaining package that will have you wondering why you
haven’t thought of this before

52890041_627897904325994_2177954645668790272_n.jpg

Whether due to legislative requirements or a desire to provide accessible services for all, many businesses are providing Access and Inclusion training for their staff. These workshops often focus on legislation and theory, with many attendees leaving with little or no practical skills to properly engage these often misunderstood members of society.

30 Foot Drop is here to end the stigma.

Through a series of fun, hands-on activities, attendees will gain an understanding of some of the potential barriers faced by people with a disability and learn how they can better help them.

2 Wise Monkey workshops are facilitated by people living with a disability in an open, honest and safe format where any question can be asked without judgement.

Thanks to funding from Department of Communities, these workshops are currently completely FREE to attend. However, this funding only lasts until 30 June 2019 so book in now to avoid missing out.

Session one: 2:00pm - 4:00pm

Opening Friday 29th March from 6:00pm

Exhibition: S U R F A C E  //  Christine Blowfield and Deanna Mosca
Mar.
1
to 24 Mar.

Exhibition: S U R F A C E // Christine Blowfield and Deanna Mosca

Opening night: Friday 1st March

Christine Blowfield and Deanna Mosca are taking over the galleries!

An exhibition of works that hold extreme differences.
Christine is exploring further her love for the Australian landscape and its variances. The raw explosion of colour and depth in her abstract pieces, to her large thought provoking landscapes.
She is thriving on a contrast between the matt surfaces and the extreme sheen created. Texture and smoothness are creating opulence, which is only surpassed by these beautiful places. Her goal is to dictate to the viewer a transient emotion between the two. In some works the two merge in other works the contrast is distinctive. Acrylic and resin pieces are featured. She has been inspired by our local South West all the way to the Northern Territory. Both has huge variances, but are connected in a raw, emotional way.

Deanna Mosca examines the human condition through yearning, loss, despair, and growth.
This is a collection of works of mixed media in acrylics and oils, painted with a sense of minimalism and expressionism to echo feelings of emptiness and fragility.
The raw canvas becomes a medium itself in becoming drawn from the surface and peeling back the layers.
'Second Strand takes me on a journey to a place where time and space doesn’t matter, it becomes a place where I’m home'.

Opening Friday 1st March 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Exhibition continues daily 10:00am - 4:00pm
until Sunday 24th March
