Arts from Home: Esperance

Esperance Community Arts  supports access to arts for everyone. This commitment continues even though our Arts Space is currently closed to the public. Access to activities, social connection and a sense of purpose and belonging are even more important during this period of social distancing and self-isolation.
This page will be updated regularly as we share ideas for different arts activities and creative collaborations to work on from home.
There is a strong emphasis on activities provided by Esperance artists, community groups and organisations.  We encourage you to bookmark the page so you can check it often, share with family who may be spending time alone, and send us on your ideas for new activities.
We are grateful to all these artists and organisations referred to here for providing so many accessible opportunities to remain creatively active and connected during this time. 
If you know of other resources that are suitable for inclusion, please contact us by emailmessage us on Facebook or phone us on 9072 1158 (our message machine will be checked intermittently). 

 

Esperance Community Arts Programs
