Creative Spaces had the pleasure of working with Elaine Labuschagne (Shire of Leonora) and Kate Ferguson on the design and installation of the temporary exhibition ‘Gwalia’s Gold’ as part of the 2016 Perth Heritage Days. Housed in the renovated Palace Hotel on St George’s Terrace, the multimedia exhibition showcased 90 photographs and a video documentary featuring past residents, passionate locals, existing cottages and lots more stories!
Objects from the cottages in Gwalia also featured in a room re-creation, bringing another aspect of the ghost town to the space.
This project was completed in October 2016. Thank you to Minara Resources, Brookfield and Heritage Perth for making the exhibition possible and to Rob Duncan for his photographs from the exhibition opening night.
