Strategic plan to build on creative connections

A focus on creating and sustaining a liveable, connected and internationally appealing city is driving arts and culture development and construction projects across Perth.

From a $3 million entertainment revival of a 1920s hall in Northbridge to the construction of a new $73.5 million CBD precinct celebrating Aboriginal culture, Perth has more than a dozen infrastructure projects embedded with arts and cultural elements in the pipeline.

The City of Perth wants to tap the potential of the creative industries to play a larger role in the economy, and has set about developing a number of strategies it believes will help build capacity in the sector.
