Midland Child Advocacy Centre Public Artworks

The Midland Child Advocacy Centre is a contemporary, child-focused collective of agencies, whose mission is to prevent and respond to child abuse. Commissioned by Parkerville Children and Youth Care (Parkerville), Pindan are providing Design and Construct services and Peter Hunt Architects are designing the complex.

The aim of the development is to provide an easily accessible and visible service in the community, promoting the importance of child safety and wellbeing. The development will house numerous agencies including the Western Australian Police family support operation and will provide a space to community activities and programmes and support professionals in their work, facilitating ongoing learning for those who work with children.

Paula Hart was commissioned to complete artworks on both the entrance screen and a number of screening and ventilation panels surrounding the carpark. The entrance screen artwork has been designed to evoke a sense of welcome and arrival and will act as a landmark feature, while the carpark panels have been designed to tell the story of the six Noongar seasons in the context of our contemporary multicultural experience of the seasons. Paula undertook workshops with students from both Highgate Primary School and Matthew Gibney Catholic Primary, which went on to inform the final artwork content which explains the seasonal changes we see annually. In delivering these works, Paula worked within the paramaters of the Australian Standards, climability and entrapment conditions required.

Apparatus was engaged to curate and manage the public art component of this significant development and was responsible for managing the Percent for Art process in consultation with the MRA.
