Beaufort Street Network AGM and Public Meeting Wed 29 Nov

Come along and join to talk about the future of Beaufort Street and the Network.

Time: 6.00pm

Date: Wednesday 29 November 2017

Venue: Five Bar on Beaufort Street

The Beaufort Street Network was the first of its kind, a community group of like-minded people who love the area and wanted to make it a great place to live and work.  It’s been incredibly successful in its 7 year history, delivering the Beaufort Street Festival, street art, markets, the Mary Street Piazza and many, many other wonderful things.

We are a grounds-up ideas facilitator, we want to have structures in place to allow locals, businesses and visitors alike to get involved.

Our new structure will be more focussed, allowing volunteers to partake in a focus group they are interested in or have expertise in.  It’s a structure that can assist and promote the community’s ideas and advocate for positive change in our area.  We would really like to see those who love Beaufort Street come along to our Annual General Meeting at Five Bar on Wednesday 29th November at 6pm. See you there!

Mary Street Piazza Wins National Award

Our very own Mary Street Piazza received a commendation at this year’s National Awards for Planning Excellence in the Great Place category – https://www.planning.org.au/awards

The piazza was designed, built and funded by the City of Vincent. What a great job guys! Thank you!

But the piazza was also made possible by the positive feedback from the community and the hard work of the Beaufort Street Network. It is an excellent example of a local government working closely with the community to create an awesome new public space, which we can enjoy for decades to come.

The West Australian newspaper wrote about the award in this article.

If you don’t know about it, the piazza is located on the corner of Beaufort and Mary Streets in Highgate, outside the Mary Street Bakery. And this is what it looks like.

Staged on Beaufort featuring The Premiss Collective Sun 5th March 3-4pm

The Beaufort Street Network would love you to join us for the first instalment of this year’s Staged on Beaufort series, featuring The Premiss Collective.

Inspired by the neo soul influences in modern US hip hop, Premiss is an experimentation in how alternative time and harmony can influence the creative process of urban poetry.

Highly influenced by the musical language or jazz greats such as Robert Glasper, Roy Hargrove and Troy Roberts!

 

  

This free community concert will showcase a host of local talents including composer Brendan Scott Grey, Marksman Lloyd, Coin Banks, Drapht, Hyclass, Macshane and Alex Ford.

Come sample their highly eclectic mix of styles and concepts aimed at combining the chaotic beauty of a live 8-piece band with Perth’s finest story tellers.

If you like the sound of that, then we’ll hope to see you there!

When:        Sunday 5th March 3-4pm

Where:       Mary Street Piazza
