ART ON THE MOVE encourages connections and fosters a sense of belonging, creativity and a greater understanding of ourselves and the world through visual art.
- Arts:Visual Arts
CONNECT – ENGAGE – UNDERSTAND – BELONG
ART ON THE MOVE encourages connections and fosters a sense of belonging, creativity and a greater understanding of ourselves and the world through visual art. We do this by touring quality contemporary art with appropriate learning and development opportunities that speak to and develop the unique cultural narratives of communities whatever the cultural practice, age, ability and engagement with culture.
To achieve this, we encourage:
- Innovative artistic practices to flourish as artists respond to environments and audiences through ART ON THE MOVE tours;
- Artists and audiences to evolve and grow into each exhibition by creating challenging yet non-threatening environments to engage with and talk about art in meaningful and creative ways. In so doing break down the barriers to viewing and participating in arts and culture;
- Adaptability in our work practices and approaches in response to needs of artists, venues and audiences, developing an agile culture whilst retaining strategic and financial intent; and
- Compassion and understanding of the world by presenting and exploring universal themes that resonate at a local level.
STRATEGIC GOALS: CREATIVE VOICES
ART ON THE MOVE's value lies in its ability to operate objectively on behalf of artists and galleries by offering a platform for the individual and collective voices that resonate in each locality as a means of preserving the unique voices of those areas. This is where the character of an area is defined, where meaning is made and identity created.
Artist Voice: ART ON THE MOVE will foster and nurture the relationship between artist, community and audience through exhibitions and engagement activities that connect, inspire, enrich and activate.
Curatorial Voice: The curators' voice will encourage a dialogue that will add intellectual rigour and intent for each exhibition that encourages inquisitive thinking and a deeper understanding of each exhibition.
Community Voice: ART ON THE MOVE will build audiences and a sense of belonging by working collaboratively to create engaging and inspiring pathways for participation and learning that connect people and communities in appropriate, meaningful and fun ways to explore the world through art.
Sustaining Voice: ART ON THE MOVE will develop a strong infrastructure for the organisation and sector that will build capacity and achieve sustainable long term outcomes.

A vibrant community orchestra based at the Fremantle Town Hall
Welcome to the City of Fremantle Symphony Orchestra – a community orchestra and one of Perth’s most vibrant community groups.
The orchestra is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the promotion and enjoyment of music in the cultural life of Perth. With a regular membership of about 60 amateur musicians we present about 5 concerts each year including a subscription series of concerts at the Fremantle Town Hall and performances in other venues around Perth. In past years the orchestra has toured to Albany, Busselton and Margaret River.The group originated in 1961 with the formation of the Melville Orchestral Society, which became the Melville Symphony Orchestra. In 1981 the orchestra became the Nedlands Symphony Orchestra. In 1993 the orchestra took on its current name.
Highlights of recent years include Mahler’s Symphonies No. 1 and No 2, Sibelius’ Symphony No. 2, symphonic works by Shostakovich, Bartok, Saint-Saens, Bruckner and Rachmaninov and a recent collaboration with UWA Choral Society to present Verdi’s Requiem.
Our musical director David Pye has a proud history of leading the orchestra through major symphoic works for large orchestra. In September 2006 the orchestra assembled more than 100 players for a full-scale performance of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring. In September 2009, in one of the most ambitious projects undertaken by a community orchestra, we performed Percy Grainger’s massive work The Warriors, scored for huge orchestra and percussion ensemble, in collaboration with Defying Gravity Percussion Ensemble and the Totally Huge New Music Festival.
In 2011 the orchestra celebrated its 50th birthday with gala concerts and the commissioning of a major new work from David Pye – Quinquagenta (A concerto for orchestra).
