At PICA we recognise that we are situated within the unceded lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We pay our respects and offer our gratitude to Elders past and present, and to those emerging leaders in the community. We acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the importance of their care and continued connection to culture, community and Country.

Always was, always will be.

Our foyer is open today 10am–5pm. Our exhibitions are always free.

Amrita Hepi

A Call To Dance

A Call To Dance
It’s your move.
A Call to Dance is a participatory dance work that’s all about you.
Join acclaimed choreographer and dancer Amrita Hepi for a yarn about heritage, belonging, public expression and cultural authenticity. Together you’ll have fun and open conversation about some big issues facing us all, and come up with a small movement of personal rebellion: a move that’s all about you.
Each evening, she’ll set up outside the PICA Building and perform the moves discovered from the community that day.
At the end of her residency, on Saturday 18 May at 3pm, Amrita will create a performance that captures the character and people of Perth. For just $10 you can discover the moves Amrita has co-created with the people of Perth. Refreshments will follow this showing at 3.30pm.
