Are you ready to transform your arts practice into a successful project or creative enterprise? Amplifier is a business guide and workshop forum series designed to equip emerging artists with the confidence, skills and know-how to make sure their arts venture thrives!


Tuesday 12 April, 6.30 – 8.30pm
The new City of Perth Library [map]

How do we push artistic boundaries? What place do ethics have within the arts industry? What are our ethical obligations as an artist and is there space for ethics within the arts at all?

Join us for a stimulating discussion and a chance to raise ethical questions of your own! Live streaming of the event will be available online.

Presented in partnership with Cathedral Square and the new City of Perth Library, and featuring expert panellists:

  • Kelli McCluskey (pvi collective)
  • Michael Tucak (Creative Legal)
  • Loren Kronemyer (Rubicana)
  • Oron Catts (SymbioticA)
  • Lyndall Adams (ECU Ethics Committee)


If you live in regional Western Australia - or even internationally - we welcome you to join the conversation as we stream live to YouTube free of cost, as part of the 2016 KickstART Festival.

Amplifier was first conceived as a workshop and forum series aimed at improving the arts business skills of young and emerging artists and arts workers in WA; to help give them the skills to make their practice or project commercially viable.

In 2013, after realising that that this type of information needed to be available on an ongoing basis for all emerging artists, Propel created the Amplifier Arts Business Guide for Creative People! To complement this guide, Propel also holds one off networking and information forums that give emerging artists the opportunity to ask questions, meet industry representatives and further develop their arts business skills.

Made for talented emerging West Australian creatives, we hope this guide and workshop series will help to give you an edge when developing your arts project or business.

Inside this guide you will find a range of topics including marketing your arts business, applying for grants, getting published, finding venues and spaces, project management, pricing your products, arts law and finance. You’ll also find interviews from some amazing local artists and some hints and tips about where to go for even more information.

Want to get your hands on a copy? You can read the Amplifier Arts Business Guide for Creative People online, or email and we can send you a soft copy. There are also two hard copy versions of Amplifier available at the Propel office that you can come in and view at any time.
