The committee consists entirely of volunteers.  They are community members with a broad range of skills including community development, project management, music, teaching and youth work.  Throughout the year project teams coordinate art and music workshops that involve both professionals and gifted amateurs.

What do we do

Zig Zag Arts organises a number of events in the community, best known of which is the Zig Zag Festival every year on the last Sunday of October. Read more here.

Developing Arts in the Community takes many forms: 

Arts in Schools programs working with the schools' arts teachers and introducing artists to work with the students creatively making art to showcase at the Zig Zag Festival.  This can involve visual arts, storytelling, dance, performance, and music.

Arts in the Community programs to make elements for the Festival Parade involve children and their families working together to design and create the float and their costumes.

Music workshops throughout the year enable people to play musical instruments together and perform in a community group.

Art Practice workshops for Women have been very successful in bringing the experience of practising artists to share some creative activities and to discuss transforming a hobby into a small business venture. 

Music Performance forms part of the Festival, where there are three stages operating most of the day, with a mix of locals and some well known acts from the Perth region.

Dance in the community brings the music to the people and gets them collaborating.  Zig Zag Arts runs several Bush Dances during the year, where families get together and become part of the art. 

Arts and Craft Market stalls feature at the Festival.  This is where local artists and crafts people can sell their wares to the rest of the community.  One of the points of difference about the market stalls at the Zig Zag Festival is the emphasis on locally made and not manufactured goods.
