Welcome to the homepage for Performing Arts Perspectives (WA).


Performing Arts Perspectives Update Monday 16 March 2020:
The Performing Arts Perspectives Steering Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel our event scheduled for Tue 31 March 2020 at the Perth Concert Hall. This is in response to State and Federal requests to cancel gatherings greater than 500 participants. The possibility of rescheduling this event is too difficult to anticipate at this time. Therefore, we have decided it is in everyone’s interest to cancel for 2020.
Needless to say, we are saddened by this decision but are committed as a steering committee to support efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19 in Australia.
