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 galleries are open today 12–5pm. Our exhibitions are always free.

Tea & Symphony

Tea & Symphony

Presented by Propel Youth Arts WA and PICA as part of the Youth Week WA KickstART Festival.
What if live music gigs happened in cosy tea parlours rather than bars?
Come and relax with friends, family, music and tea. For one afternoon we’re transforming PICA into a cosy teahouse, showcasing our favourite musicians from around Perth and our favourite teas from around the Earth. Bring a mug, bring a mate, and share some tea and symphony with us.

Either way, they’ve never been seen before and will never be seen again – a one-night-band exclusive to the 2021 Kickstart Festival. Their secret identities may include Yanni Goldberg and Darren Grant Halstead. Or not. You’ll have to find out for yourself.
