The University of Western Australia’s Cultural Precinct is giving Perth audiences the perfect winter escape with an exciting program of events for WINTERarts 2016.
Starting Friday 24 June and running until Saturday 30 July, WINTERarts celebrates the best of arts and culture in Western Australia with dozens of events presented on the beautiful Crawley campus.
UWA Chief Cultural Officer Professor Ted Snell said although students were on semester break, the campus was still buzzing with a program of intellectually engaging and stimulating sensory activities.
“During WINTERarts you can take part in a workshop by an accomplished poet, bring the whole family for a hands-on art activity with a local artist or explore the university’s secret places – all within a short walk of each other," Professor Snell said.
“Most of our events are free or low cost and we have something running just about every day.
“I welcome all Western Australians to visit our campus and experience some of the best art, literature, music and ideas their state has to offer.”
This year’s WINTERarts program includes:
Learn painting, poetry, knitting and more in our exclusive workshops from some of WA's most outstanding artists, experts and craftspeople.
Revel in the very best in visual arts, including work by some of Australia's best young Muslim artists, Aboriginal art and culture from the Berndt Museum and photography from around the world.
