Arts asks big questions about sport

Comedian and ABC presenter Andrea Gibbs will be in Margaret River this February to ask the question of Margaret River men, what makes sports so much better than arts?

Why do so many people prefer to watch a game of footy or play a round of golf than attend an opera or watch a musical?

Working with the team at Arts Margaret River and the Margaret River HEART, Andrea will conduct one-on-one chats with Margaret River sport fanatics who, as a rule, avoid the arts at all costs (unless it’s a live music venue or their kids end of year shows).

In return for anyone who volunteers their time, the research will donate $50 to the local sporting club, school or charity of their choice.

Andrea will be in the famous Chin Wagon caravan from 22-24 February parked in various locations.

Research organisation CircuitWest is reaching out to the sport fanatics of Margaret River to come in for a yarn about what makes sport so great. It will be good fun and takes 30 minutes.

There is only 15 session available, so if you are interested, it is advised to book soon.

Registrations can be made through the Facebook pages of Arts Margaret River, the Margaret River HEART or at

The research will be used to better understand the difference between arts and sports fans and all conversations will be private and confidential.
