There's always something happening in Albany!
An immersive artspace for kids aged 2 – 12 years Enter a world under the waves and dream up magical and mythical creatures. Bring them to life with recycled materials and join in creating a large installation. Created by Leanne White and inspired by our new exhibition Spaced 2: future recall.
Presented by International Art Space and Vancouver Arts Centre. Crossing the boundaries of art, history and community, spaced 2: future recall invites you to rediscover regional Western Australia from the viewpoint of 14 acclaimed international and Australian Contemporary Artists. This exhibition concludes the second edition of the spaced program, a recurring international event of socially engaged art.
The Vancouver Arts Centre’s August artist in residence is performing artist Matt RJ Ward. After establishing an impressive career in the UK and Europe, Matt is returning to the Great Southern to share his skills in singing and acting. During his residency Matt will be developing a new work: 40 Years Later which explores the historical events of the 1977 Save the Whale campaign in Albany. The work combines drama, singing and contemporary sound design by composer Jonathan Brain and is being presented in partnership with Creative Albany Inc and Albany’s Historic Whaling Station.
The City of Albany is seeking community assistance and information following vandalism and theft at Muttonbird Beach in early August.View All News
