Are you ready to feel inspired? Are you also keen to dive into Perth‘s latest cultural offerings?
Superb, because 2019 is shaping up to be a cracker year for Perth in both the art and sporting realms. From arty events like ART BALL and the Perth Makers Market to world-class sporting games – State of Origin and Manchester United, I’m looking at you – there’s an abundance of stuff for you to choose from. You also won’t even need to travel that far, as well, given that it’s all too close to the The Westin Perth. I’m just sayin’.
Let’s peruse Perth, pal.

"I’d like to think that the event is a unique beast that infuses culture into the city,” Grant says. “If, because of ART BALL, people come back to the Gallery during the year, even better.” Fabric Quarterly had an in-depth chat with some of our creative committee and producers Grant Capriotti of @musebureau and @pauloconnorinsta along with AGWA Director Stefano Carboni on the essence of ART BALL, the thinking behind the initiative and what to expect at this year's event on 26 May.
ART BALL is back again this year at The Art Gallery of Western Australia with the theme ‘Electric Dreams’. You’ll be witnessing avant-garde art and fashion. You’ll be tripping over some mind-bending art installations. You’ll be gagging over the performance art. Taste the opulence, darling. Taste all of it.
Hold the mic: both Manchester United and Leeds United are making their way to Perth in July. First up, Manchester United are taking on Perth Glory on July 13 at Optus Stadium. Then Manchester and Leeds will battle it out on July 17. I mean, if you’re going to watch some football, it may as be the world’s best, right?

With all this culture pumping through your veins, you’ll need to give your eyelids a nap somewhere in between all the shenanigans. Top tip: give The Westin Perth a crack. Located in the east end of Perth’s CBD, it’s only a stone’s throw away from all of Perth’s offerings (and everything on this list), so you’ll be saving a lot of that much-needed coin. You’ll also be feeling slick as hell waking up in the heart of the city. What an inspired mood that is.
The much-anticipated showdown between Queensland Maroons and the New South Wales Blues is making its way to Perth in a history-making move. History-making, you ask? Well, it’ll only be the 10th time in history that the series has been played outside New South Wales or Queensland. That’s worthy of hulk-smash on the ticket purchase button. Just don’t be this guy…
