What's On & Current opportunities

Included on this page

The Town of Claremont is committed to developing and fostering art and culture within the local community. Providing the opportunity to express and celebrate our creativity, identity and history is an integral part of the Town’s cultural identity.

The Town of Claremont recognises the significance that arts and cultural development plays towards community enrichment. Making visual art broadly accessible to the community helps to develop civic pride, creates opportunity for community engagement and contributes to a sense of place.

As part of our commitment, the Town offers a range of activities, initiatives and activations. You can read more about these below.

Artist Opportunities

Please see below for details of each current Artist opportunity.

Conveniently located at 64 Bay View Terrace, the newly refurbished Claremont Community Centre will provide a premium facility on offer for various community groups and individuals.

Free Arts Community Activities

There are a range of free arts and cultural activities available at a grassroots level that are open to our community. Information on these can be found on our Claremont Community Library & Hub pages.

Community Hub and Library


The Town works with local artists and businesses to create engaging activations each year.

In 2024 the Luminous Street Festival took place which saw Bay View Terrace within the Claremont Town Centre transform into an illuminated wonderland.

This event was very well attended and drew visitors from outside the local area into the Claremont Town Centre.


The Town enjoys a partnership with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra (WASO) which allows the magic of symphony music to be enjoyed by residents and the community alike. WASO feature at our Carols in the Park event and also A Night on Bay View each year.

Through our Community Funding program we also have a partnership with the Claremont Concert Band.

Art Awards & Exhibition

The Town runs a biennial Art Award & Exhibition to support and celebrate West Australian emerging and established artists across a variety of art forms, including oil, watercolour, ink, sculpture, and mixed media.
