Lunch with Perth Festival Artistic Director and Chair

The Governor and Ms Annus hosted lunch for Mr Iain Grandage, Artistic Director and Mr Tim Ungar, Chair at Perth Festival.

During the lunch the Governor was briefed on the Festival’s recently released 2020 Impact Report outlining the Festival’s significant public value and capacity to assist in the social and economic recovery of Western Australia.

From the Perth Festival website:

Festival 2020 – the first of four under Artistic Director Iain Grandage – was a success on every social, cultural, civic, economic and tourism measure assessed by analysts Culture Counts.

Survey respondents rated the Festival an outstanding platform for Indigenous culture, authentic local stories and exciting collaborations between WA and international artists.

The opening week of Indigenous performance, a first for any major Australian international arts festival, was particularly celebrated.
