"All the arts are brothers; each one is a light to the others." Voltaire

The Festival of Arts was conceived four years ago to highlight art forms that are not normally on the menu at the Workshop Arts Centre. So we’re heeding Voltaire’s advice and this year will illuminate our regular banquet with comedy, dance, performance art, puppetry and poetry, photography and the art of science. Shine on!

Workshop Arts Centre Festival Of Other Arts exhibition in conjunction with Art Month, Sydney. This project has received funding from Willoughby City Council.

27 February to 17 March

In this exhibition, scientific images of breathtaking beauty and technical refinement have been handed over to twelve artists who have imagined them into being in a completely new way in the form of sculptures, paintings, cyanotype prints, digital photographs, videos and tailor made optical devices.

Art That Moves is our annual homage to performance art, and it has grown stronger year after year. With its outrageously talented artists, unique format and limited seating, it sells out quickly, so don’t wait too long to buy your tickets.

This year’s programme is overflowing with humour and wonder. Come and join Sabrina D’Angelo on a surreal and comedic journey, through a suitcase, into a parallel universe, and welcome the otherworldly Melbourne dancer Benjamin Hancock, awarded male dancer of 2017 at the Australian Dance Awards, to our studio stage. We are exceptionally fortunate to have the legendary shadow puppeteer, Richard Bradshaw OAM. Performance artist Ellis Hutch will take origami to a scale you have never imagined, and poet Tug Dumbly… well you just never imagined… Artist/cellist Lucy East will help us entertain ourselves with her moving installation. The consummate skills of these amazing performers will be corralled by the inimitable actress Amanda Muggleton, in the role of MC.

Finger food is included in the cover price. Art That Moves will have its own wine and beer bar under the marquee on the Centre’s lawn.

Images L to R: Ellis Hutch, Sabrina D’Angelo, Amanda Muggleton, Tug Dumbly & Richard Bradshaw’s puppets.

Writing and performing poetry can be a hugely cathartic, healing, emotion venting release, a way to get things off your chest, put things in context, help explain yourself and your world to both yourself and others. Plus it’s a lot cheaper, and a lot more fun than therapy with a shrink. Teenagers welcome to enrol.
