Details

Description

The New Museum for Western Australia is one of the most significant museum redevelopments in the world today, and one of which all Western Australians should be incredibly proud.

Developed in the heart of the Perth Cultural Centre, it will share the stories of our people and place, acting as a gateway to explore all of Western Australia. It will reflect the extraordinary history, distinctiveness, creativity and diversity of our State and region.

Over the course of the project, and long after the doors have opened in 2020, the people of WA will be invited to contribute to the way we present the stories of our past, present and future. We will encourage dialogue, debate and the sharing of multiple perspectives to identify the stories and experiences that are important to our State.

We have an unprecedented opportunity to create a museum that is both reflective and worthy of WA. Our ambition is to be an excellent and vibrant Museum, valued and used by all Western Australians and admired by the world.

Description

The Aboriginal Art Gallery, located in Kings Park overlooking the Swan River and the City of Perth, was established first in Hay Street, Perth in 1992, as a venue to exhibit the art of Western Australian Indigenous artists.

The Gallery has been at its present location for the past 15 years. This Kings Park location offers a premium location that encourages appreciation of Aboriginal culture, their contribution to Australian history, family kinship and respect for the land.

The Aboriginal Art Gallery gives visitors the opportunity to meet and talk to Aboriginal artists and observe them as they work, listen to their stories unfold in music and dance performances from some of Western Australia's leading Aboriginal artists. Visitors to the gallery, both national and international, have the opportunity to be a part of the reconciliation between the original inhabitants of Australia and the people who have made this country their home over the past 200 years.

Art is central to Aboriginal culture. In a culture with no written language, it was used to record the beliefs and stories from the Dreaming and to pass these on to each successive generation. "Aboriginal culture represented through art has been dated at over 40,000 years old."

Aboriginal art, while fulfilling its earlier role is now also being used by artists to express and describe the contemporary issues impacting on their lives.

This has expanded the boundaries of Aboriginal Art, from works traditionally rendered on rock, bark and sand using natural ochre, to works using oils, watercolour and acrylic paints, etchings, gauche, collage and solvent transfer prints.

The gallery's reputation is substantially recognised throughout the Aboriginal community and amongst collectors of fine Indigenous art around the world.

The curatorial and management staff of the gallery has extensive knowledge of Western Australian Indigenous art and have expanded the gallery's interest to include the Central Desert region of Utopia. We invite you to experience a journey through Aboriginal art with a variety of innovative, contemporary and traditional Aboriginal art and artefacts.

Barracks Arch

Barracks Arch, one of Perth's iconic historic buildings is located at the top of St George's Terrace. Built in 1866 it was originally the entrance to a larger building call the Pensioner Barracks.

  • Historical Sites:Buildings

Details

  • Facilities:Free
  • Open Days:Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday,Sunday

Description

The Barracks was built to house the Enrolled Pensioner Force (also known as ‘Pensioner Guards’). The guards came to Australia on the convict ships that transported nearly 10,000 prisoners to Western Australia between 1850 – 1868.

The Barrracks were in use to house the Pensioner Foruce until 1887, between 1900 - 1904 the building was convered into offices. 

In the 1960’s the Government surmised there was no need for the Barracks and decided to demolish the buildings.The announcement created a public uproar and motivated the Royal Western Australian Historical Society to form a Barracks Defence Council. The Council worked diligently to keep the Arch however demolition proceeded and in 1966 all but the Arch was demolished.

Architect Richard Roach Jewell was appointed to design an appropriate building. He was at the time an employee of the Department of Public Works. He had arrived in Western Australia in 1851 and designed many of the important public buildings in Perth during the latter half of the nineteenth century, including the Pensioner Barracks. Some of his others designs include boys’ schools in Perth and Fremantle, Wesley Church, the oldest section of the Treasury Buildings, Perth Town Hall, Perth Goal and Government House.

Burt Memorial Hall Soldier Chapel

Description

The Burt Memorial Hall stands in the heart of the Heritage Precinct of Perth. It is an important historic symbol of Perth’s Burt family, who played a significant role in the government of the Swan River Colony when it was first established.
 
Archibald Burt came half way round the world to be the first Chief Justice of Western Australia, and earn a reputation for fair dealing with the indigenous peoples.
 
Of the three sons who came with Archibald in 1861, Septimus became the State’s first Attorney General. More recently, Archibald’s great-grandson, Sir Francis Burt, was Judge of the Supreme Court from 1969–77, Chief Justice from 1977–88, Lieutenant Governor of Western Australia from 1977–90 and Governor from 1990–93.
 
Tragically, Septimus lost two sons in the Great War. When Theodore Burt was killed at Montauban in 1916 his father built the Burt Memorial Hall as a memorial to his son. The Foundation stone on the South-West corner of the building was laid by Lord Forrest on 26 October 1917. A year later, Francis Burt was killed at Villers-Bretonneux. A memorial tablet of Donnybrook stone and Australian marble is mounted on the wall of the staircase well near the main entrance.
 
The Burt Memorial Hall is a superb example of a community building constructed in the Gothic Revival style. It was designed by Mr Herbert Parry, son of the second Bishop of Perth.
 
Worked into the fabric on the south side of the building facing St George’s Terrace are the Arms of the Diocese of Perth and the Burt family crest.
 
In 1922 a magnificent stained glass window depicting the Four Virtues was incorporated into this side of the building in memory of Septimus by his wife, Louisa. It consists of four large panels with figures representing the virtues of Justice, Prudence, Temperance and Fortitude. Beneath these panels are the Coats of Arms of the United Kingdom and Australia together with the Diocesan Arms of Canterbury and Perth.
 
The Hall’s position abutting St George’s Terrace, central to the Heritage Precinct increases its significance as a community facility. The lower dining room was used as a soup kitchen during the Great Depression of the 1930s. In World War II, it was used to house Dutch refugees fleeing from Indonesia (Dutch East Indies) and to provide meals to returned servicemen.
 
In May 1979 a fire in one of the rooms beneath the hall caused extensive damage to valuable equipment, books, furnishings and other effects. The fire also burnt the floor of the main hall, which had to be replaced.
 
The years have taken their toll on the old building. From 2012 to 2014, a new roof was added and a complete refurbishment undertaken as part of the Cathedral Restoration Project. The restored building was reopened and rededicated at Evensong on Sunday 20 July 2014.
 
The Burt Memorial Hall is currently used for a variety of Cathedral and diocesan functions, receptions, workshops, educational visits and exhibitions.

Artist Statement
The nature of paint as a substance and painting as an act is most alluring to me. As an abstract expressionist and process-driven painter I mix pigmented substances, exploring them as elemental and reactive. Facilitating the process with experience and intuition, my work is a recording of natural forces and processes, such as density and flow in response to gravity, elemental exposure and chemical reaction. I encourage paint to behave and express due to circumstances.

Because these principles are universal the result is somehow recognizable; such as cloud formations, aerial landscapes, cosmic macrocosms and cellular microcosms. When painting I am revealing a process that tells a story – a visual dialogue.

These painterly happenings at play on the canvas, invoke a desire to reach and touch, respond and engage; and to celebrate the intimacies it brings. The experience results therefore in something sensory. I invite you to trust your response as authentic and valid. I believe the work is given unique expression under your regard and that is exciting!

Description

As the capital city of one of the world’s most significant mining regions, Perth is rapidly growing in both population and economic prosperity.

 
The strength of our economy, especially our capabilities in the resource sector, ensures that both the city and the state are competitively placed for future investment and growth.

Perth's close proximity to Asia opens great potential for investors in energy, minerals, tourism and hospitality, education and agriculture and food.

Perth is in the midst of an exciting period of expansion and new developments. The large-scale capital works projects throughout the city and surrounding areas means Perth will change dramatically over the next ten years, better reflecting the growing global importance of the city.

These developments provide great opportunities for investors and will drive further economic growth, creating more jobs and stimulating commerce in all industries.

While the state of Western Australia is fortunate to have world-class reserves of natural mineral and energy resources, the city has become home to an equally impressive resource - a highly educated, skilled and productive workforce – gathered here by the strength of our tertiary institutions, economic climate and world-class lifestyle opportunities, making Perth the state's leading destination for creative innovation and cultural diversity.

East Perth Cemeteries

The cemeteries within the grounds continued to be the main burial ground for the Perth area until April 1899 when burials commenced at Karrakatta Cemetery. It's acknowledged that 10,000 dead are here.

  • Historical Sites:Cemeteries
  • Open Days/times:Sun 2PM - 4PM

  • Open Days:Sunday

Description

This website is the culmination of over 50 years of collective effort by a legion of committed volunteers and professional researchers. The National Trust of Australia (WA) in partnership with the Friends of Battye Library Inc. have brought together this work, and with the support of Lotterywest made it accessible to the public.

The site for a burial ground was surveyed at East Perth in late 1829, and the first acknowledged burial was John Mitchell on 6 January 1830. The cemeteries within the grounds continued to be the main burial ground for the Perth area until April 1899 when burials commenced at Karrakatta Cemetery.

The East Perth Cemeteries burial ground were closed for new burials in 1899, except for those in vaults or with the approval of the Governor. Burials at East Perth continued until 1916 when this practiced was ceased with a handful of exceptions.

It is widely acknowledged that there are over 10,000 burials within the grounds of the East Perth Cemeteries. There was no burial register kept by either the Church Wardens or the caretakers of the Cemeteries. This led to researchers having to spend many hours compiling various histories and datasets on the East Perth Cemeteries and these have been produced in various formats.

Lorraine Clarke and Cherie Strickland as members of and in conjunction with the Friends of Battye Library Inc., collated a single database of the numerous existing datasets, once these datasets were combined and differences highlighted, they were then checked against the original source data, these discrepancies were then corrected or comments placed within the database to notate these variations.

Research was then undertaken using TROVE newspapers, State Records Office governmental records, State Library of Western Australia Private Archives, Royal Perth Hospital Admissions Registers to enable the most comprehensive biographical database on the inhabitants of Cemetery Hill. This database is fully sourced and acknowledges previous researchers who contributed to the end result.

FORM Gallery is also available for select private, corporate and non-profit events. The sophisticated loft style interiors offer an elegant and dramatic setting for cocktails and canapés. Guests can mingle in the gallery surrounded by the finest in local, national and international art and design. The exposed brick walls, hardwood floors and large wrap-around windows of the atrium can also be combined for larger events.FORM’s program areas:
1. Regional Development: creative and community projects initiated for Port Hedland and the surrounding Pilbara region
2. Aboriginal Creative Development: the Canning Stock Route Project and other Aboriginal cultural development projects in the Pilbara, Kimberley and remote Western Australia
3. Creative Capital: Thought Leadership, research and urban strategy
4. Industry Development: Midland Atelier, exhibition development, industry mentoring

When FORM published Comparative Capitals in 2008, benchmarking the performance of Australia’s main cities, our research revealed that Perth has the highest percentage of creative professionals in the country, the majority of which work in science and engineering. Yet between 2001 and 2006 Western Australia lost more creative professionals from media, arts, design and architecture than it gained.


Perth also has a history of producing the highest percentage nationwide of graduates with degrees in creative arts, yet loses most of these graduates over east or overseas; and again, it fails to attract sufficient numbers back as a counterbalance. These statistics point to a Western Australian cultural and creative sector which is talent-rich yet has not capitalised on all aspects of this talent.


The strength of the resource sector and the continued appetite in Asia for Australian commodities have to a large degree cushioned the economy, shaping an affluent, strong state. Yet for Western Australia to remain economically competitive and socially enriched, it must nurture its creative side, its cultural identity. FORM sees creativity and creative thinking as integral to achieving this, and through our programs – all of which are centred around creative development and engagement - we are helping create better places in which to live and work.
