Claire: a few things

Thought some of you might be interested to know that the Fremantle Arts Centre has FREE studio spaces in their amazing building which they let out to artists for a short residency period. Obviously you have to go through an application process and be selected, but it's not hyper exclusive or anything, and free!

Also Artsource is currently gathering expressions of interest in studio spaces - go to their website and complete the short survey... it will help them to gather information about how many people in Perth are seriously interested in studio space, how much they can realistically afford, and what kind of space/location they would be interested in. Do it!

Also the Inter Collective is doing an installation in Wolf Lane/Munster Lane for a function for the Planning Institute of Australia TODAY. We've had all sorts of trouble... the City of Perth has a ridiculous amount of restrictions and limitations on pretty much everything anyone ever does in our city, so our initial plans have shifted out of the laneway completely into the alfresco area of Aldas, but we're doing something nonetheless. Come by and have a look, it might only be up for this afternoon (from about 5), and it's a private function, so this is an unofficial invitation, but you can see it from the laneway anyway. I'll post photos later hopefully.

ALSO I've been involved in the art side of things for the Vice Chancellor's EP launch coming up on Thursday 26th Feb at the Bakery. Come down to check out all the artwork for the EP (there are 7 different artists involved) as well as heaps of stuff on the night like live projections, interactive sound-stallations, good MUSIC... etc etc. Woo!
