Running from 9-13 May 2018, Scribblers is a brand new literature and arts festival for young people presented by FORM and the Town of Claremont. Starting with a three day schools program for ages 6-17 from Wednesday to Friday, the festival kicks into overdrive this Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 May with a weekend of fun for children aged 0-13 and their families as well as an evening session for young adults and even a grown-ups’ event too.
FORM have taken over The Goods Shed in Claremont, one of Perth’s oldest railway buildings, and have turned it into a hub of creativity that will engage the community on many levels. “It will offer cultural opportunities that celebrate and share Western Australia’s unique sense of place and character, while connecting creative talent and audiences both locally and internationally,” states FORM Project Manager Rhianna Pezzaniti.
“Rock star chef” Jay Tesorero earned his reputation as a chef to the stars when working at a major hotel. Nowadays he wants to cook for you and me from his post as head chef at Academy in Claremont. While the doors of Academy have been open for a little while, the all day café officially launches today, Wednesday 18 May, and will add a dinner service starting tomorrow. Jay shares his passion with us below.
In 2014 FORM held their first PUBLIC festival, facilitating a city-wide program of street art that continues to stop both visitors and Perth locals in their tracks. Now in its third year, PUBLIC 2016 returns from 1-17 April to engage and inspire us all. Here we take a look at this year’s program and how you can get involved, plus we are giving away tickets to the PUBLIC Forum this weekend.
