A REVITALISED Pinjarra Court House will officially open to the public on January 19, offering a creative space for the community to co-work, co-create and co-innovate.

The community is invited to pop-in to the Court House between 9am and noon to explore the space and learn more about the opportunities available.

To further the celebrations, visitors will enjoy live music and market stalls and there will be complimentary face painting for the kids.

Shire President David Bolt said the Court House, a joint initiative between place making group Pinjarra Connect and the Shire of Murray, was an ideal venue for creatives, entrepreneurs and small businesses to co-work and host meetings, workshops and community events.

“There is also an area for Makers in Residence, allowing artists to produce, display and sell their products,” he said.

An application process managed by Pinjarra Connect will determine the Makers in Residence schedule, with facility hire managed by the Shire of Murray.

Applications and bookings through the Court House website, will be launched at the opening.

Pinjarra Connect representative and Jarra Infusion owner Nicole Willis said the group looked forward to activating the space for the use and enjoyment of the district.

“Pinjarra has a thriving creative community and having a space available on the main street for its representatives to showcase their works and engage with the public, is a great opportunity,’’ she said.

The decision to transform the Court House was inspired by Pinjarra Connect’s submission in response to an expression of interest process.
