Safe Keeping Our Heritage

Sake Keeping Exhibition

Perth Town Hall, Lower Foyer Cnr Barrack and Hay Streets, Perth Open 10.00am to 4.00pm, Wednesday 18 April until Sunday 18 May Host: National Trust of Australia (WA)

In what is arguably the first exhibition of its kind, some 20 different examples of a Coolgardie Safe will be collected from across the community of WA in one display. The "Safe Keeping" exhibition is the National Trust’s contribution to the 2012 Heritage Festival and celebrates ingenuity and inventiveness of Western Australians. The exhibition will also feature original artworks specially commissioned by invited Western Australian visual artists and writers who have been invited to respond to the festival theme. The final display will therefore consist of a fascinating array of Coolgardie Safes, each containing an original artwork that explores an aspect of our natural, Aboriginal and/or historic heritage of value to past, present and future generations.
