Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - LIFESTYLE -

THE City of South Perth’s 2017 cul­tural cal­en­dar has been launched.

From Fe­bru­ary to April more than 20 events, many of which are free, will take place across the City.

In­cluded are the pop­u­lar An­gelo Street Mar­ket­place and Fiesta Con­cert, the launch of per­ma­nent and tem­po­rary pub­lic art in­stal­la­tions, a selec­tion of City and com­mu­nity hosted events, food trucks and free pop-up ac­tiv­i­ties.

City of South Perth Mayor Sue Do­herty said the cal­en­dar fea­tured spec­tac­u­lar events and ac­tiv­i­ties “and the best part is many of them are free.”

“The City prides it­self on of­fer­ing high­qual­ity arts, events and cul­tural ex­pe­ri­ences through­out the year and over the sum­mer pe­riod,” she added.

“From pub­lic art to live con­certs and popup ac­tiv­i­ties, I en­cour­age peo­ple of all ages to dis­cover our ex­cit­ing pro­gram and im­merse them­selves in these fab­u­lous events.”

South Perth StrEATS re­turns to the fore­shore, daily from 5-8pm at El­lam St.

The Fiesta Con­cert will take place on Satur­day Fe­bru­ary 25 on the iconic South Perth fore­shore, fea­tur­ing prom­i­nent Aus­tralian singer-song­writer Emma Louise.

Emma Louise will be sup­ported by the spir­i­tual and soul­ful voice of Bris­bane singer-song­writer Thelma Plum.

Visually, the City will be trans­formed by per­ma­nent and tem­po­rary pub­lic art ac­ti­vat­ing streets and un­ex­pected places. One of these is Con­flu­ence, an in­ter­ac­tive art in­stal­la­tion by lo­cal artist Sean van der Poel which has been de­scribed as a dream-like di­men­sion ris­ing out of the sur­round­ing land­scape.

Lo­cated on the South Perth fore­shore to the east of Mends Street jetty, the work will be dis­played dur­ing the day and at night time from March 8-12.

Bris­bane singer Thelma Plum will per­form at the Fiesta Con­cert.
