STREET FEAST OF ARTS
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.
