February’s a short month, so the weeks are that much more precious. Hence this week’s mantra: do something different. Don’t cook on a Monday night. Take a boat around the Fremantle port. Head to a human rights symposium. What’ll it be?
Here are five awesome things to do this week.
Monday 18 February
Under The Bridge At East Street Jetty
Balmy Monday nights don’t call for cooking, they call for delicious global food served straight up at Under The Bridge, a twilight food market set at the East Street Jetty. Plenty of food trucks, plenty of good vibes, live music and river views.
Tuesday 19 February
A Midnight Visit At Girls School
Fringe World might technically be over, but some of the festival’s most exciting events endure. If you didn’t catch A Midnight Visit during prime time, now’s your chance to get inside the Edgar Allen Poe-inspired wonderland. Part choose-your-own-adventure, part film set, part playground, you know you want to check it out.
Wednesday 20 February
Five Short Blasts
See the Fremantle Harbour from a new perspective with Five Short Blasts, a Perth Festival initiative that invites you to hop on a boat and experience the sights and sounds of the port through the lens of those who live and work there.
Thursday 21 February
In Visible Ink Symposium At WA Maritime Museum Fremantle
Western Australia’s first Human Rights Museum—The Museum of Freedom and Tolerance—is hosting the In Visible Ink Symposium this week in which 25 local and international speakers, artists, musicians and storytellers will come together to explore the art of telling difficult stories for positive social change. Go and get your fill on stories of adversity and perseverance in the face of discrimination and disadvantage; stories that give way to hope in place of fear. If you can’t make it on the Thursday, it runs on Friday as well.
Methyl Ethyl Live At Mills Records
Celebrate some homegrown talent this week with Methyl Ethyl Live at Mills Records. The musical project of Jake Webb, Methyl Ethyl’s third album, Triage, written, produced and recorded by Webb, has just been released. The band usually expands to a five-piece for live shows, but this week Webb will perform a special live-in-store rendition of the album for your Thursday evening pleasure.
