Perth Green Drinks is excited to be part of Left of Central, a joint initiative by Central Institute of Technology and the City of Perth to activate Museum Street in Northbridge.

Left of Central will host the event on March 26 on Museum Street, providing the perfect environment to talk about the change and transformation happening in Perth.

The panel will explore a new urbanism that has been shaping things around the city, one that advocates diverse use and population for neighbourhoods, design for pedestrians and transit, public spaces that invite use and contemplation, and landscapes that celebrate local history and ecology.
