Originating in Melbourne & now launching in Perth, WEA aims to connect West and East coast artists & unite the interstate Elephant family.
White Elephants Arts has been a lynchpin of Melbourne’s underground art scene for the last four years, featuring large-scale installation happenings, sound events & pyrotechnic displays, as well as housing a diverse group of some of the city’s up & coming talent. The White Elephant Arts complex has been operational since December 2009, contributing to Melbourne’s reputation for experimental & confronting artworks.
We look forward to hearing from you
