The Town of Victoria Park would like to acknowledge that Arts Season takes place on Whadjuk Noongar Boodjar and acknowledges the traditional custodians who continue to care for Country and contribute to the rich diversity of arts within the Town. We honour the significant role that First Nations culture plays in our creative community. The Town pays respect to past, present and future Elders and leaders within the Town and extends that to any First Nations visitors during Arts Season.
This Arts Season we are excited for the Town-supported Public Art Tours at John Curtin Gallery – public artworks installed at Curtin University capture WA’s unique history, from ancient Noongar songlines to the State’s diverse geology. Additionally, we are proud to promote the Perth Festival exhibition OCCURANT AFFAIR, with the Aboriginal collective proppaNOW’s artists Jennifer Herd and Vernon Ah Kee hosting a workshop where students can create their own shields that are featured in the exhibition.
This Arts Season our POPP Table in Houghton Reserve will also get a refresh by artist Julianne Wade, a visual artist who remains connected to her culture through painting, family and community connections through the Western Australian Aboriginal Leadership Institute. Her purpose is to highlight that all land is a traditional country which our ancestors have practiced culture on for thousands of years and share knowledge about the Dreamtime stories of the land.
We hope you enjoy these and the many other events happening as part of Arts Season.
