Perth creatives want downtown space to live and work

The City of Perth has undertaken a landmark study to ‘make room for culture’ in its city center in which over 1,000 artists, singers, actors, dancers, musicians, directors and filmmakers were asked what would inspire them to live and work. in downtown Perth.

It was revealed that 84% of artists and creatives surveyed want livable workspace in downtown neighborhoods.

The study includes input from four inner city local authorities – the City of Perth, the City of Victoria Park, the City of South Perth and the City of Vincent.

The findings of the study have informed the Economic Development Strategy process which is currently under development.

The Lord Mayor of the City of Perth, Basil Zempilas, advises that “artists and creative people add vibrancy, beauty, richness and character to the communities in which they live.

“The purpose of the study was to obtain feedback from creatives that can help the City find more performance, exhibition, creative, production and administrative spaces where creatives can work and live.

The study identifies key opportunities and policy mechanisms that the four councils could use to increase sustainable, affordable, long-term arts accommodation and creative artist spaces in downtown neighborhoods.
