Freedom: Stories from Skate Culture WA

December 3, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 6:00 pm, repeating until February 19, 2022

At some point in their lives, almost everyone in Australia has stood on a skateboard. Whether it sits by the door ready to roll, under the bed gathering dust or buried under a pile of boxes in the garage, the skateboard is a ubiquitous object in the average Aussie home.

This summer, the City of Melville will pay homage to that humble symbol of freedom, expression and rebellion – and the subculture it spawned – with a fully immersive exhibition, Freedom: Stories from Skate Culture WA.

Featuring commissioned works by highly regarded WA visual artist Bevan Honey, the exhibition will turn the spotlight on Perth’s contribution to a cultural revolution and trace local stories, design innovation and artistry from the 60s to the present day.

Not only that, there’ll be plenty of opportunities for people to bring their board and have a skate!

Freedom runs from Friday, 3 December 2021 to Saturday, 19 February 2022 at Yagan Mia Wireless Hill Park and Museum. The exhibition is open Wednesday to Sunday, 10.00am to 4.00pm and extended hours on special event days.
