Open Door

Meet our staff!

These are free opportunities to meet some of our staff and hear about some of the learnings Perth Festival has gained through experience. Each session focuses on a particular strength of the Festival team. We invite you to come and ask us questions, meet our staff and get to understand the machinations beyond the Festival season.

Open Door is available to people working in the arts industry only.
