Since 2012, Colour Box Studio has worked with over three hundred artists and provided a welcoming platform for our community to explore their creativity. We’ve provided opportunities for creatives to showcase their work through pop up shops, workshops, events, exhibitions, community projects and via our online platforms.
Colour Box Studio was set up by filmmaker Amie Batalibasi with a dedicated team of volunteers and we continue to be able to support our local artists and creatives with the assistance of wonderful community members who volunteer to support our programming. Our volunteer program provides hands on ‘real world’ experience for emerging arts managers and artists.
“I’m a photographer, video artist and sometimes curator, I volunteered at Colour Box Studio co-ordinating their public art program in 2013. As an artist its been such a great platform for meeting inspiring creatives and people interested in arts based in the west. This has also given me opportunities to exhibit my artwork in solo and group exhibitions both with CBS and beyond which has really helped me develop my arts practice. As a curator we were able to exhibit so many artists through the public art program alone – everything from performance, paste ups, sculpture, installations and video projections! It was a great opportunity to showcase amazing artists in unique spaces, being a part of the supportive crew at CBS gave me heaps of arts admin and events skills. Thanks Colour Box Studio! ” – Artist, Shae Rooke.
