Yagan Square Beats & Bites and Bunuru Welcome Announced

8 Mar

WAM is exited to have been asked to curate some great entertainment to enhance activities happening at Yagan Square. The community celebration – Bunuru Welcome – named after the Noongar season for February-March, will be held from 23-25 March and the weekend will feature live music and dance performances, giving people an opportunity to come and explore Perth’s newest destination. More information on the Bunuru Welcome lineup will be coming soon.

Along with curating the Bunuru Welcome, WAM has started programming entertainment every Wednesday evening for the next six weeks to celebrate the opening of Yagan Square and present Beats & Bites. Get along to the Yagan Square Amphitheater every Wednesday during March and early April from 5pm-9pm and catch some great bands and beats while you eat your bites!

The Yagan Square precinct boasts a Market Hall of international cuisine and local produce, digital tower and canopy, amphitheatre, children’s playscape and a new inner city mall connecting William Street from the CBD to Northbridge. The precinct design reflects Aboriginal stories and the unique Western Australian landscape. In collaboration with the Whadjuk Working Party, the project team has created a unique destination that will strengthen the local and international understanding of Aboriginal culture.

The digital tower will be programmed day and night to showcase an extensive library of local, national and international content as well as promoting events and other visitor information. Interested in getting your music video screened on the digital tower? More info here.
