RE//PERTH (4th – 27th July)

As you can guess from the many reviews on our site, one of our favourite things to do over Summer is Fringe. So you can imagine how excited we were to hear that the people behind Fringe, Artrage, have organised a winter festival for us to enjoy!

There are tons of family friendly activities for kids of all ages. There are free events such as live ice sculpting, little bakers and playdates for the younger kids. Meanwhile, teenagers will love this season’s highlight – The Mirror. This modern takes art to the edge, coupling contemporary circus with digital elements, against a soundtrack of electronic compositions and pop mash-ups.

NAIDOC Week (7th – 14th July)

NAIDOC week is celebrated throughout Australia on the first week of July to recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders people. This is our opportunity, as a country, to learn more about our First Nations cultures and commemorate some of the oldest, continuous living cultures in Perth. This year’s theme is Keep the Fire Burning! Blak, Loud & Proud.

Yirra Yakin Theatre Company will be running FREE performances of Boodjar Kaatijin across multiple venues. Boodjar Kaatijin follows Koorlbardi (Magpie), Weitj (Emu), Nyingarn (Echidna) and their friends as they journey through Noongar Boodjar sharing stories of how the land was created. The play was written specifically with younger audiences in mind, so bring the littlies for a culturally immersive experience. Check out all the performances here.

City of Gosnells is running a whole range of NAIDOC events for the family. There’s Twilight Tales at the library, Art and Yarning with Djurandi Dreaming and even a special FREE screening of the independent film, Emu Runner. Check out all their events here.

Last but not least, Yagan Square will be running a “Karla Yaarnginy” on Friday, 12th July – a one night spectacular spotlighting the significance of “karla” (fire) to local Noongar people and animals. This full light and sound production featuring local talent is sure to delight kids of all ages. More info is available here.
