THE City of Bayswater will be sharing its focus on adding creativity and vibrancy to Maylands, Bayswater, Noranda and Morley town centres at an upcoming state-wide conference.

Bayswater Mayor Dan Bull will be speaking at the Town Team Movement Conference, to be held at the West End Arts Precinct in Perth on September 14 and 15.

The City is a sponsor of the event, which will be attended by leaders of encouraging activity in local government areas.

Cr Bull said the City met with the movement team several months ago about its focus on placemaking.

“By partnering with local communities and town teams, the uniqueness of each town centre can be preserved and leveraged,” he said.

“We’re seeing the community become directly involved in shaping the kind of place they want to live in – which is really what placemaking is all about.”

Cr Bull said it was great to see community group Morley Momentum and Noranda Vibes town teams delivering successful public art projects and community events.

Place manager Emma Snow, who has worked on activating Maylands, Bayswater, Mt Lawley and Inglewood for about eight years, said local town team members were invited to attend the conference.

Ms Snow said working with community groups Creative Maylands and Bayswater Historical Society, Maylands art gallery Studio 281 and businesses on various projects and events have been highlights.
