FORM is an independent, not for profit cultural organisation that develops and advocates for excellence in the creativity and artistic practice in Western Australian communities. In other words, they're providing a great platform for our WA creatives to do what they do best. The Goods Shed is FORM's new project space.
If there were ever a term to truly make you feel socially illiterate, 'lightgraffiti' would be it. Neither a made up word, nor a new bar in Leederville, this new art style stems from Tunisian artist Karim Jabbari.
Jabbari worked with West Australian videographer Chad Peacock and photographer Bewley Shaylor to capture a calligraphy of light in the extraordinary landscapes of Albany and The Great Southern.
'The Core' exhibits these lightgraffiti works from 5th August - 14th September at the Goods Shed in Claremont, WA.
There's also an opportunity to work with the three creatives behind The Core exhibition. Starting at $40 per session, it's highly likely calligraphy and cool lighting will take over the instagram trend of avocado toast. Workshops are running throughout August.
The Natural Chef:
Hang on, is it really a launch event without a celebrity appearance? Chef Matt Stone is bringing his The Natural Chef book launch to the Goods Shed on Friday, 19th August.
The former Greenhouse executive chef is an advocate for zero-waste cooking, ethical food and a cracking meal, and will be joined by Must Winebar chef/partner Russell Blaikie to talk food from 5.30-7.30pm. This is a FREE event, however places are limited.
Headland Art Awards:
If you thought FORM were already producing enough for the WA arts scene, think again- of course they host an awards event, too! The Headland Art Awards is one of Western Australia's richest art prizes, recognising emerging regional artists with a prize pool of $100,000 across 9 categories. The award exhibition opens on Thursday 18th August.
