Paper Mountain is an artist-run initiative (ARI) started in 2011 by four saintly young artists who dreamed of a space in the CBD to make art, share art, and support artists. Paper Mountain is that beautiful dream. It is an exhibition space, a studio space, and a co-working hub for artists, arts workers, performers, writers. Even though these have been hard times for arts funding in Australia, we persevered with hard work and passion from a dedicated grassroots community. It took many of us to build this up, and it takes many of us to run it too. And now we are asking for your help to keep climbing.

Five years is a massive achievement for any arts organisation, but especially so for us. We are a proudly independent, not-for-profit ARI that is run entirely by volunteers, and open 7 days a week to the general public. We provide a crucial platform for emerging artists and arts workers, assisting early-career artistic experimentation and professional development. There are 47 volunteers that currently dedicate their time and energy to Paper Mountain. We have 30 gallery attendants, 12 operational staff, and 5 co-directors who collectively dedicate around 300 hours to the running of this tremendous organisation. We love providing a creative supportive space, and we feel loved knowing that many artists, writers, photographers, filmmakers, and other creatives have grown their practice here, that many arts organisations support us too, and that thousands of gallery patrons have climbed up inside the mountain and found creative joy and exciting art and a welcoming art community. We are proud to be part of what makes Perth lovely and loving. We are proud to be a mountain.

But we want to become a professional organisation. We can only offer so much on our current budget. We can only offer so many volunteer hours. We dream of better facilities for our Studio Artists, Common Room members, and exhibiting artists. A darkroom for photography. A woodworking workshop. Screen-print facilities. Symposiums. Festivals. Workshops. All the things for all the artists! We’re lucky to be in this beautiful building right in the heart of Northbridge. We’d like to stay, to grow, to become a magical hub of creativity. And to do this we need love.*

We are running this fundraising campaign to commemorate five years of Paper Mountain, and to ensure our organisation’s future. How to Love a Mountain will be celebrated with a birthday party on the 10th of June featuring local acts such as Rabbit Island, Erasers, Sam Atkin, and Xanthea, and a mysterious mountain fountain. If you are around, come celebrate with us on the night.
