Cultural Precinct

Art Residency Spaces

The Cultural Precinct encourages innovative and experimental arts practice through residencies via the existing cultural agencies.

The Cultural Precinct is evolving into a spine of arts and cultural activities flexing through the campus. It will continue to develop over the next decade into a vibrant site of communication, contemplation and engagement.

Masonic Contemporary

The Masonic Contemporary is a multi-purpose venue with a vision to create and foster a vibrant mulch-disciplinary hub on the University of Western Australia's Crawley campus for the arts and cultural activities.

It is currently being used as a rehearsal space by the Ochre Contemporary Dance Company, as it awaits the second stage of its planned refurbishment, which will transform it into a multidisciplinary arts venue.
