WE CREATE THEM
WE CREATE THEM
We develop artists, produce works, engage audiences, and use arts as a vehicle for social change.
E13 was born in the Goldfields, and we're proud to live in and operate from Kalgoorlie. We’ve seen the creative industry here take leaps and bounds in a short period of time, and believe the future is fostering the development of new ideas.
Our passion is in creating experiences that allow people to engage meaningfully with each other, and ourselves. We strive to align our projects with this passion.
Through a series of interconnected conversations, this compelling presentation examines the stories and follows the journeys of six people whose lives have been shaped in some way by the gold mining industry and life in the Goldfields region of Western Australia.
Audience members will journey from Aboriginal times where the significance of gold was defined very differently than the white settlers of the colonial era. A diverse cast weaves a dramatic tapestry of stories about the Aboriginal perspective of gold mining and white settlement, the initial discovery of gold in Kalgoorlie, and the concept of ownership and its relationship to identity.
All That Glitters is a 45-minute stage show produced by E13 in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia.
Written by Dan Carter & Linden Brownley.

E13 Sessions are a series of live original music events produced by E13 in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia.
Sessions connect music lovers with local musicians in casual, intimate settings. These events appeal to people, such as families, who wouldn't necessarily enjoy a night out in environments that live music is currently offered.
We’ve developed a music camp programme that will be delivered to a group of 20 students from schools in the Northern Goldfields region of Western Australia. The programme aims to develop the student’s musical, instrumental, and sound production abilities, as well as their social collaboration and interpersonal skills.
This capacity building will culminate into an end-of-week performance, where students will utilise their abilities to set up, and perform in the show.
By reimagining the dreary interstitial spaces that has resulted from poor architecture and planning, we were able to create an inviting, bustling space that complimented the Heartwalk Wrap Party.
The performances hosted in this space generated creative work for over 20 local artists, and exposed cultural innovation to over 250 patrons.
...and we'll be back in 2018 to do it all again!
In collaboration with the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder and eight CBD businesses, we created a tour of musicians down the main street of Kalgoorlie, using the shops as the performance venues. Musicians played short sets within each of the businesses, creating a unique vibe that resonated well with both shoppers and stores.
We were again engaged by the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder to create a series of street performances that encouraged local trading during the Christmas period. The programme has been met with overwhelming support from shoppers and shop-holders alike who enjoyed the vibrancy that the performance art added to the otherwise quiet street fronts.
We took over a group of empty CBD spaces to create a pop-up entertainment precinct following the 2017 Saint Barbara's Parade, 3 December 2017. Sundowner Shows provided the platform for some amazing locally produced shows that encompassed a variety of arts including music, comedy, culture and history.
We were commissioned to produce a performance piece to end the Country Arts WA 2017 Regional Arts Summit. The brief? To avoid the apologetic platitudes that usually happen at the conclusion of these sorts of events, and end on a really vibrant note. Working with musicians who met for the first time in the days leading up to the finale, we delivered an upbeat, audience engaging musical performance that celebrated the work of the people who contributed to make the event a success.
Each year, the prestigious Kalgoorlie-Boulder Art Prize brings artists and art lovers alike from all corners of the state. We were honoured to carefully curate the music that accompanied the event's opening. With a blend of piano and viola to create modern jazz tones, it was a perfect fit for the occasion.
We were commissioned by the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder to provide bespoke entertainment for the opening of the newly redeveloped Lord Forrest Olympic Pool complex. Owing to the intended use of the space as a youth precinct, we engaged with multiple young people to develop their performance capacity, resulting in a collaborative and meaningful show of youth performers.
E13 was a proud sponsor the Kalgoorlie Fashion Week Opening Block Party in St Barbara's Square, Kalgoorlie. We provided musicians and equipment to compliment the 'open-air town-square' vibe.
The inaugural biennial Jungkajungka Woodlands Festival took our team to Norseman WA to provide complete street and open-air concert performances.
These workshops were designed to compliment The Gizmo which toured to the Goldfields Arts Centre in 2016. Kids were guided through the production of making their own zany gizmo instrument from recycled objects. Local musician Ruben Wills worked with the kids 'Gizmorchestra' to compose a piece of music especially for this wacky workshop.
