ARC will operate out of a spacious building in Armadale’s historic Jull Street Mall, with the ARC café to be developed in the space next door – setting the area up to be a hub for artists and arts lovers alike!

ARC will contain a shop where artists can display and sell their wares, as well as a gallery, workshop space and meeting point for artists. ARC will provide its members with extensive marketing support, business workshops with a focus on sustainability, as well as various networking opportunities.

Visual artists across all mediums, fashion designers, photographers, publishers and writers are invited to attend this info session at Paper Mountain to find out how they can be part of ARC.

Charlene O'Brien, businesswoman, eco-fashion designer at Cob Designs and social entrepreneur, is the driving force behind ARC, and will be hosting the session. Charlene returned recently from representing Australia at the Global Sustainable Fashion Week in Budapest.

ARC will open in October 2017, and sets out to promote and profile WA artists, provide opportunities for the community to learn and experience local art and artists, establish an environment where artists can effectively display and sell their work, and enable greater cultural activation of Armadale’s Jull Street Mall.
