VISITORS to Mandurah’s cultural precinct on Saturday could be mistaken that they have visited another world as unique and extravagant creations come and go from the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre.

The much-anticipated judging day is a key component of this year’s Common Threads Wearable Art competition presented by Act-Belong-Commit.

Brisbane-based renowned artist Svenja will arrive in time to join the competition’s judging panel.

Then fresh from the judging day, Svenja will share her observations and passion for wearable art on Sunday, March 13 at 2pm at CASM. Book your place to An Afternoon with Svenja for just $10 by emailing stretch@mandurah.wa.gov.au.

The Common Threads Wearable Art competition calls on local, national and international artists, designers, creatives and fashionistas to explore and create extravagant, revolutionary, provocative works of art on the body.

The Mandurah stage is set to come alive with tickets now on sale for this year’s Common Threads Wearable Art Showcase on May 7.

The Common Threads Wearable Art Showcase presented by Act-Belong-Commit presents spectacular wearable creations in a highly entertaining stage performance, complete with professional theatre, dance and music.

Winners will be announced at the showcase event featuring a full-length theatrical production.

Last year’s showcase played out in front of a packed crowd on Mandurah Performing Arts Centre’s main stage so patrons are urged to book early, visit www.manpac.com.au or call 9550 3900.

The spectacular wearable art creations will then be exhibited at Contemporary Art Spaces Mandurah for all to view.
