Art scene: Proximity Festival

With the development of new projects in Perth’s east end under way as part of the Historic Heart project led by Adrian Fini, it is perhaps fitting that the Proximity one-on-one performance arts festival will take place at Cathedral Square for 2017.

To be held from Tuesday September 26 to Saturday October 7, this year’s festival will be the first time the event has been held at a non-arts-specific venue.

A sell-out event every year since its inception in 2012, Proximity provides a unique experience in that it is set up to ensure participants get a one-on-one, personalised viewing of each artist’s work.
