The peak body for youth arts in Western Australia
On Saturday 22 September 2018, Propel Youth Arts WA once again invites you to join us in documenting 24 hours of life in Western Australia directly through your eyes! Every year, hundreds of people across WA simultaneously step behind their cameras to capture and submit an image from their day to Mosaic, a community-driven photography project and exhibition.
Why should networking be awkward and boring? As part of the MOSAIC Project, Propel Youth Arts WA is inviting you to our first ever young creatives picnic. Hosted by our jack of all trades and Propel legend Zal Kanga-Parabia, you will be able to chat to some of Zal’s friends in Perth’s professional and emerging photographer community. Meet like-minded people and make new friends as you chat about all things photography over a lovely picnic spread in the sun.
Been imaging the Milky Way? Maybe some planets, stars or constellations through a lens or telescope? This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to work with photographer and space enthusiast Zal Kanga-Parabia to use the LCO, a global, research grade telescope network to image and learn about space. Using archived images of planets and the galaxy, participants will learn editing techniques and how these images are used for vital research.

Artistic explorers of a different kind are celebrated in spaced 3: north by southeast. Six Australian artists completed residencies in the Nordic heartlands of Finland, Iceland, Denmark and Sweden and five Nordic artists found their place in Western Australia’s rural and remote communities. Through sculpture, video, photography and installation, this show is an enlightening series of vignettes onto the world we know, and the world we have yet to understand.
s it art? Science? Or both. Including a range of strange, bewildering, rarely seen and, just maybe, brand new organisms, this exhibition defies categorisation. In the anniversary year of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, the provocative project asks some moral as well as creative questions about how science operates today and might in the future.
Mistaken identities, slamming doors and a con that spirals out of control are all taking place at Melville Theatre this September. They’re all part of the fast-paced British comedy Cash On Delivery, written by Michael Cooney and directed by Georgina Kling.

Jamie lives in a concrete jungle, a fast-paced and busy city. From her window high above the city Jamie dreams of making friends with animals, but Mum and Dad won’t let her have a pet in the apartment. Tonight, her dreams will take her on a one-of-a-kind visit to the zoo, where she discovers the remarkable joy an animal can bring into her life. The Night Zoo explores the special connection between humans and animals and the importance of caring for another living thing.
Two star-crossed lovers come together despite constant opposition from their warring families in Limelight Theatre’s latest production, described as “the greatest love story ever told”.

The classic Anthony Burgess novel A Clockwork Orange comes to life at the Broken Hill Hotel this October, exploring the nature of man’s free will.

In the Next Room, or The Vibrator Play is a sassy play about power and passion.

A hysterical parlour drama bound to create a buzz!
It’s time to take another spin and revisit Adriana Xenides, the darling of ‘TV Week’ and glossy magazines, who made a visit into almost every lounge room across Australia. This world premiere top dollar musical exposé is both hilarious and tender, a tribute and a protest.
