Debra Salem who is well known to us as a judge in our Young Singer Competition talked to us this evening about the "Perth City Hall - Past, Present and Future".
She joined Culture PK as their Engagement Officer in October 2018 and is responsible for delivering the Perth City Hall Community Participation Plan connected with the redevelopment of the new museum for Perth.
Debra illustrated the history of the city hall from its beginnings in the 1840s until the culturally significant building, as we now know it, was opened in 1908. She then took us through the hopes for the future of the hall by showing detailed plans of what is to come, including future planned useage of the present Museum and Art Gallery.
Her background is in engagement, performance, theatre and music. She has worked with Horsecross Arts setting up and delivering various choir projects as well as Creative Producer for Community and School engagement for the re-opening of Perth Theatre.
