BASKET weaving groups to corporates are invited to submit Expressions of Interest (EOI) to be based at Sunset Hospital in Dalkeith.

The State Government announced today that it was looking for organisations interested in investing in the site to realise its potential as a creative, cultural and community asset.

Culture and the Arts Minister David Templeman said he expected interest from local government that could use the site for smaller groups.

“We’re asking for interest from organisations, business and interested parties who have a vision for how we can activate these heritage buildings and create opportunities in culture, arts and heritage tourism,” Mr Templeman said.

“It’s been untouched since 1995 and we want to see this place deliver its potential.”

The site contains more than 10 buildings, including a morgue and the second oldest cinema in WA.

Current tenants, including The Minderoo Foundation, will need to submit an EOI to remain at the site.

Sunset Hospital, which is managed by Perth Theatre Trust, will remain open to the public.

The EOI process will be open for three weeks from Saturday.
