Perth’s Green Drinks

Perth Green Drinks

 

Perth Green Drinks is excited to be part of Left of Central, a joint initiative by Central Institute of Technology and the City of Perth to activate Museum Street in Northbridge.

Left of Central will host the event on March 26th outdoors on Museum Street! It’s the perfect opportunity to talk about the change and transformation happening in Perth.

The panel below will explore a new urbanism that has been shaping things around our city, one that advocates diverse use and population for neighborhoods, design for pedestrians and transit, public spaces that invite use and contemplation, and landscapes that celebrate local history and ecology. It’s a way of imagining cities open to community participation!

Anna Chauvel is a landscape architect with a passion for the public realm. She is the managing director of Place Laboratory, a design studio with a “people focused” approach to creating liveable, desirable and exciting places. She has recently worked with the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority on City Square and the Cultural Centre Place Plan, as well as on Curtin University’s Place Activation Plan and the Department of Housing’s Bentley Regeneration Project.

Pam Herron & Dean Cracknell are, respectively, chair and deputy chair of the Beaufort Street Network, an organization of residents and businesses that aims to nurture, enhance and extend the unique environment of the Beaufort St strip. Pam is a real estate agent who lives and works around Beaufort St and wants to help it become the greatest urban precinct in Perth. Dean is an urban planner passionate about creating vibrant, diverse and interesting town centres.

Emma Slavin has been involved with Ashfield Community Action Network (AshfieldCAN) for two years and has led a project to transform the local park in her suburb. Along the way the project has transformed her, and she went from a career in the Visual Arts and Education to working for Social Fabric, a community development and placemaking consultancy, as well as starting her own landscape design and education business.

There’ll be a food truck and a pop-up bar selling food and drinks during networking time, plus a nice outdoor atmosphere at the heart of the city!

Where: Museum Street, outside Central Institute of Technology. When: Wednesday 26th March 6pm-8.30pm Cost: FREE!  RSVP: on Eventbrite by 23rd March – no need to bring your ticket.
