WA Youth Theatre Company enables and empowers young Western Australians to tell their stories and gain valuable life experiences through the practice of theatre and performance. We provide a best practice link between young people and the professional theatre and performance industries by employing leading professional artists to train, mentor and create work with our members.

The National Trust of Western Australia manages East Perth Cemeteries and 70 other heritage places around the State on behalf of the community. We do this because we know that heritage enables us to explore our identity and our place in the world. We tell compelling and engaging stories from the past that connect with personal experiences and build understanding of the value of heritage.
