Learn the art of par­ty­ing well

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

PERTH EN­JOY an af­ter-work get-to­gether with a dif­fer­ence when Arty P’Arty launches in Perth.

The brain­child of Fre­man­tle women Alv­ina Dore­mus and Sophia David­son, the event will have the usual cock­tail party air about it while giv­ing at­ten­dees the chance to try their hand at fun new trades in­clud­ing Bachata dance, draw­ing car­i­ca­tures or learn­ing cir­cus tricks with the help of Fre­man­tle-based Cir­cus WA.

Ms Dore­mus said there would be six mini-work­shops to keep ev­ery­one en­ter­tained.

“We en­joy go­ing out at night and wanted to de­sign an af­ter-work event that con­sisted of more than drinks,” she said.

“We like to en­gage our­selves into a new ac­tiv­ity and we be­lieve that adults should laugh and be silly; it's good for the soul.

“Art is an amaz­ing out­let and stress re­liever and ice-breaker, which makes it the per­fect can­vas for a net­work­ing and min­gling event.”

She said that while this month’s event was a trial, they hoped it would be­come pop­u­lar enough to hold ev­ery two months.

Arty P’Arty will be at the Perth Town Hall on Septem­ber 30. Visit www.arty­party.com.au for tick­ets.
