Perth Design Week: Led by Culture

13 Mar 2024

The second annual Perth Design Week will be held in Perth/Boorloo and surrounds from March 14 –21, 2024.

On Tuesday 19 March, our collaborator, Apparatus, is hosting a ‘Led by Culture: Collaborative Design at Subi East’ panel discussion.

Celebrating Noongar kadadjin (knowledge) on Noongar boodjar (Country), the Six Seasons Bidi Artwork project is the biggest WA State Government investment in Aboriginal public art to date. It is part of the Subiaco East Redevelopment Project, one of the most significant urban redevelopment projects undertaken in WA.

The Bidi was delivered under the guidance of the Subi East Elder Group and is a culturally led project with Noongar lore and knowledge given the respect it deserves.

The Subi East Six Seasons Bidi was a collaborative process, commissioned by DevelopmentWA, with Aboriginal Development Coordination by Karrda, Landscape Design by UDLA x OCULUS, Art Coordination by Apparatus, and the professional development of six Noongar artists.

Join artists Jarni McGuireDellas BennellLea Taylor, along with Emma-Lee Hollings from DevelopmentWA, Daniel Firns from UDLA, and Helen Curtis from Apparatus, as they discuss Elder led design collaboration and the Subi East project.

This session may be eligible for CPD points from your professional institute. Tickets are $30, including lunch and an opportunity to hear from and ask questions of the panel. For further details and bookings, please visit Humantix.
