18:00 - SEMINAR - Grammar Therapy : Grammar has made a comeback! Website | More Information
Being able to deconstruct a sentence and knowing the fundamental principles of English aren't just helpful tools for learning a second language. They're skills essential to our ability to communicate effectively in almost every field. Grammar Therapy is a simple and effective introduction to English grammar for those who never learned grammar properly in school or need a refresher. This course runs over three weeks (total of 7.5 hrs).

18:30 - TALK - Climate Change: the facts : A free public talk hosted by Extinction Rebellion on the climate crisis. Come and explore the latest climate science and learn what action you can take to make a difference. More Information

Friday 31
19:30 - PERFORMANCE - Heroes : Perth Orchestra Project and Izaak Wesson perform works by Beethoven, Glass and Barblett Website | More Information
Join the Perth Orchestra Project and conductor Izaak Wesson for a concert of tragedy, triumph, and raw emotion as we explore the concept of ‘heroes’ through music. This concert meditates on the question of ‘what is a hero, and how do they shape our lives?’, examining the ways in which three different composers over the last two centuries have been inspired to create art in response to ‘heroes’.

The programme begins with an extract from Glass’s Symphony No.4, which is heavily influenced by the music of David Bowie. In his iconic track 'Heroes' Bowie was inspired by two lovers who were separated by the Berlin Wall, which Glass draws on in this movement. Perth-born composer Charles Barblett then offers a contemporary take on the idea of heroes and villains in our world today, in what will be a world premiere performance that focusses particularly on the treatment of refugees and asylum seekers.

2020 is the 250th year since Beethoven's birth in 1770, so in celebration the concert concludes with Beethoven’s mighty Symphony No.3, the ‘Eroica’. POP will explore this work which was written at one of the most tumultuous times in European history, a time profoundly shaped by individuals who sought to dramatically change the world in which they lived.

Philip Glass - Symphony No. 4 'Heroes', 1st Movement Charles Barblett - Distorted Perceptions (PREMIERE) Ludwig van Beethoven - Symphony No. 3 Eroica

Diana Warnock, a former newspaper and radio journalist, went into politics at the age of 52 when she was elected as the State member of Parliament for Perth in 1993. Before entering politics, Diana was an activist for about 30 years for women’s rights and for minorities, and always belonged to many community and voluntary groups, both locally in Perth and nationally. She grew up in the Eastern Goldfields—between Menzies and Leonora—but lived most of her adult life in the city of Perth. Her late husband Bill Warnock, an Irish-Scot, grew up in a Glasgow slum and migrated to Australia in his teens. They both graduated in arts from UWA.
