This document presents a concept for a new youth initiative in metropolitan Perth.

The initiative is being developed by representatives of organisations and practitioners in key fields under the leadership of Committee for Perth and Propel Youth Arts WA. It follows on from recommendations made in the Committee for Perth’s publication A Cultural Compact for Western Australia – the 10 year challenge (2008), in which it was identified that there was an enormous opportunity for Western Australia to be developed and marketed as an incubator for the arts, culture and creativity.

The motivating idea is that a new space for young people, one that defines and puts into action a strategy of cultural participation, inclusion and ownership, is key to long term gains in the day to day experience of our city - what it feels like to walk through, to work in, to visit on the weekend, to go out at night.

Acknowledgement of Country

The Committee For Perth acknowledges the traditional custodians throughout Western Australia and their continuing connection to the land, waters and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures; and to Elders both past and present.
