Our festival spark continues
Perth Festival, founded and brought to you by UWA
In 1953 UWA Professor Fred Alexander brought to life his vision of a ‘festival for the people’
As with UWA’s involvement with the community, the Festival has been growing ever since. From its humble beginnings as a community arts experiment to the international extravaganza it’s become, Perth Festival has always been a pride and joy of our university. Perth Festival now stands as Australia’s premier curated arts festival and one of the greatest in the world.
Be inspired – join us on campus and across Perth for the 2019 Festival season.
Perth Writers Festival at UWA
Words and ideas will buzz around our new -look hub for writers, storytellers, musicians, artists, dancers and theatre-makers from around the globe. We’re also taking our love of language out and about, including to the streets, galleries, bars and writers’ centres of Perth and beyond in the lead-up to the Perth Writers Festival weekend from 18-24 February 2019.
Watch out for the full program to be released in January.
