RAFT is a new artist-run space that showcases a series of independent art events.

Through performance, music, podcasts and sound, this hand-built pontoon explores the significance of what the Derbarl Yerrigan (Swan) means to local and national artists.

RAFT sets sail from East Fremantle Yacht Club and will dock at Elizabeth Quay for two weeks.

All RAFT events are free to the public.
