FutureNow's CEO Julie Hobbs and Industry Development Manager for the cultural sector Ann-Marie Ryan were among thousands who attended events at the 9-day launch of Western Australia's new museum WA Museum Boola Bardip.
To celebrate the opening of the Museum with interstate and international audiences unable to travel, WA Museum Boola Bardip has collaborated with Perth Festival to produce films that showcase creative works inspired by and filmed in the stunning new Museum. More than 100 people from Western Australia’s creative industries were employed to work on these films that highlight Western Australia’s world-class artistic talent and the Museum's stunning heritage-listed buildings and contemporary spaces.
Boola Bardip means 'many stories' in Whadjuk Noongar language. WA Museum Boola Bardip has been developed with a 'People First' approach, and its content and experiences have been informed by four Community Panels, the WA Museum Aboriginal Advisory Committee, the Whadjuk Content Working Group, and direct engagement with more than 54,000 people across WA.
