City of Perth collaboration brings creative space

AN EXCITING new collaboration giving support to emerging creative industry workers was launched this week in Perth.

The project is a joint initiative by the City of Perth, Finbar, the Central Institute of Technology, and not-for-profit organisation Guerrilla Creative.

The initiative aims to bridge the gap to employment in a time where the job market is extremely competitive – and to offer a range of services that are not otherwise available.

The City of Perth delivered the space as part of an incentive for developers to include facilities that are available for community use, in which the City offers a bonus 20 per cent plot ratio if a developer provides a facility that benefits the community.

In this case, Finbar’s development at 63 Adelaide Terrace will include a facility for this purpose when it is completed in 2018.

In the meantime, Guerrilla Creative has been given the opportunity to set up shop at a temporary site at 181 Adelaide Terrace, Perth.

Perth City’s Manager of Economic Development Dan High and Scott Cameron from Finbar met with the co-founders of Guerrilla Creative in the lead up to yesterday’s launch.
