Welcome to the 2018 Amana Living Arts Festival.

DANCE, MUSIC, SCULPTURE, CREATIVE WRITING, POETRY, DRAMA AND MORE!

This inaugural event will provide Amana Living customers with an array of artistic experiences and adventures to enjoy over six weeks, from 12 February to 25 March 2018.

More than 150 events will take place across 50 locations including Amana Living sites, central community facilities, and prestigious arts venues.   There will be something for everyone!

Some of the Festival highlights include:

  • Black Swan State Theatre Company - Page to Stage: discover the process of adapting a novel for stage from the director, a member of the cast, playwright and costume designer of The Lighthouse Girl.
  • Hands On Workshops: fun and interactive experiences over a variety of sessions where participants learn different techniques to create one-of-a-kind artworks, jewellery, textiles and bath bombs! 
  • Sculpture by the Sea Guided Tour:  Sculpture by the Sea will be offering Tactile Tours for clients of Amana Living. The tour will provide a unique insight into the 70+ sculptures and their creators who come from WA, interstate and overseas.
  • Music Through the Ages: West Australian Symphony Orchestra musicians perform well-known and popular music for chamber ensembles at Amana Living locations. Come and hear some favourite classical pieces and get to know WASO musicians during these engaging performances.
  • Creative Writing Workshops: participants will learn how to use different types of imagery (sound, smell, sight, taste, touch, and movement) in their writing to create enjoyment for the writer and the reader.  Workshops will be at the Peter Cowan Writers Centre and individual Amana Living locations.  

The events are open to all levels of creativity and ability, so why not try something new?  You could discover a new passion or make some new friends.
