In the heart of the city, a great new community space is opening soon…

… and you’re invited to have a say about how it will be used.

You might have noticed that the Queens Building property on the corner of Murray and William Streets in the city has been redeveloped.

The building owners, the Uniting Church in the City (UCIC), are making a large indoor space on the first floor of the building and a ground floor open-air area available for community use. It features a large event or exhibition space, with commercial kitchen, smaller spaces and interesting heritage fixtures. There is the potential for this space to become a vibrant community hub in the heart of the city; perhaps a space for people to hang out with friends, eat lunch, rehearse or perform, show their artwork, be entertained, hold meetings, host events or something else.

To ensure this potential is realised, the UCIC is inviting people who live, work, play and study in the city to join in on a tour of the space and a conversation on how it will be used.

Tour & workshop: 1.30 – 4.30pm Saturday 21 February 2009

Venue: Level 1, Queens Building, cnr Murray and William Streets, Perth (enter via 97 William Street)

I’m excited to be working with the UCIC on this place making project in the city centre and will be facilitating the workshop on the 21st. If you’re interested in attending, please RSVP to me by 13th February via anne (at) annegoodall.com.au.

  1. Hi Anne,

    Only found out about this today… I have an idea for a community use and would be interested to have a look at the venue; can that be arranged?
