The City of Perth invites creative and cultural concepts to revitalise its urban spaces

The City of Perth invites creative and cultural concepts to revitalise its urban spaces
February 13, 2019

The City of Perth is revitalising and activating its urban spaces into thriving new centres, in an effort to attract new creative and cultural industries to the state’s capital.

Deputy Chair Commissioner Gaye McMath said an unprecedented rate of change and expansion has reinforced Perth’s position as a contemporary capital city, advising "following a review of the existing uses of the Northbridge Piazza and Community Centre, the City has developed a vision of transforming the area into a creative and cultural hub for the community, which will also support local traders.

“The City is inviting expressions of interest from creative industry businesses, industry peak bodies, cultural organisations or community groups, with ideas geared towards facilitating sector growth at the Northbridge Piazza which can drive new community and activation outcomes.”

The Northbridge Piazza has the opportunity to be used for creative and cultural purposes across two main areas, or as one overall facility.

McMath added "these areas integrate with the Piazza grassed area and the HD Super screen, that can be accessed as part of a calendar of events, community uses, artistic programming or targeted activities.

“Whether it be technological initiatives, arts, start-ups or community groups, we want to drive diverse and creative cultural entrepreneurialism within the city.”
