Apparatus is a creative consultancy, specialising in art and integrated design within the public realm.

As an interdisciplinary team of experienced design collaborators, we collectively have skills in curating, interpretation, First Nation consultation, public art project management, artist professional development programs, design assist processes, and artwork fabrication.

We have extensive experience working on significant public art projects that have become beloved statewide landmarks. It is our privilege to have worked with First Nations Elders, Consultants and Artists to facilitate the delivery of Aboriginal cultural material in major development projects.

As a team of Western Australians, you can be assured of the benefits of buying local, sustainability, capacity building, investing in the creative economy, and being able to view the artworks as they are being fabricated.

We believe that our whole community is improved when all people see themselves reflected in the places we places we inhabit giving us all, no matter what race, a sense of price, belonging and connection.

We believe that listening, learning, and working together is the path to reconciliation. As an organisation, we are committed to working with Aboriginal people where the process is tailored to them, and the process of making art is as well considered as the outcome.

We take care of your project.

We spend time researching and interpreting what is important to a project or place to ensure we’re working with cultural material that is particular to your project – the history of the place, how it was shaped and formed, the contemporary aspirations of the community.

You can feel assured that your project is in the safe hands of people who will take the utmost care.
