ARTLAAB was established in 2011 to support ALVA students, staff and graduates who need a readily available space to develop and exhibit work, in a venue that is connected with the broader community. Located in the Masonic Hall at No. 6 Broadway (on the main cafe strip), it enjoys excellent exposure to a vibrant university community and the general public.
The main purpose of the facility is to provide a platform for the testing of ideas and development of creative work by students studying fine arts, architecture and landscape architecture, allowing ALVA staff and students to engage with the broader public, along with any other students from arts institutions in Western Australia.
ARTLAAB is particularyly receptive to experimental, participatory and performance based work.
