Premier attraction at City Business Forum

The Hon. Mark McGowan MLA, Premier of Western Australia, will provide the keynote speech at the City of Joondalup’s first business forum of 2022 at Joondalup Resort on Thursday 2 June.

Mr McGowan will address the forum theme: Growing the global economy through local communities, speaking about the importance of economic diversification for the State and how strategic growth centres like Joondalup will play a significant role in WA emerging stronger from the pandemic.

The Premier will then discuss these issues in a conversation session with City of Joondalup CEO James Pearson.

It is the second time the Premier has attended a City of Joondalup business forum, having previously delivered a keynote speech at the City’s June 2019 forum. Premier McGowan and his Cabinet met in Joondalup in 2020.

A sold-out audience of 320 is expected.

“Setting up our State for the future is one of my Government’s key priorities and the most fundamental way to achieve that is to diversify the economy,” Mr McGowan said.

“We are investing across a range of industries and economic infrastructure projects in Perth’s north and beyond to drive deeper economic diversification and generate jobs.

“My Government’s Diversify WA strategy and WA Jobs Plan are enabling us to build a resilient economy as Western Australia continues to reconnect with the world.”

Also speaking at the forum will be Chamber of Commerce and Industry WA (CCIWA) Chief Economist Aaron Morey.

Mr Morey will provide an update on the WA economy, bringing to light some of the challenges and supply chain vulnerabilities that have emerged during COVID-19 and highlighting the impact the pandemic has had on housing markets and local communities.

Joondalup Mayor Albert Jacob said it was testament to the high regard that the City and its business forums are held that Mr McGowan had again put aside time to address the Joondalup and northern metropolitan business community.

“This is an opportunity for key City stakeholders to hear directly from the Premier of our State about the Government’s strategy to boost and sustain economic growth and the opportunities it offers to people and businesses in Joondalup, and the northern region we serve, as WA emerges stronger from the COVID-19 challenge,” he said.

“Supply chain disruption, the global pandemic and the changing workplace affect our community, families, employment and businesses.

“As Perth’s northern growth and innovation hub, with capabilities in education, health, cyber, tourism, AI, robotics and digital, the post-pandemic world presents major opportunities for Joondalup.”

Those interested in attending can register online via Ticketbooth by Friday 27 May.

Percy Doyle Youth Facilities Take Another Step Forward

The provision of youth recreation facilities at Duncraig’s Percy Doyle Reserve has taken an important step forward after the Joondalup Council endorsed the recommended scope of works and progressed the project to a concept design stage.

The proposal includes a skate park (with bowl), BMX facilities, a multipurpose court, nature play elements, climbing frames, barbecue and picnic areas, spectator spaces, CCTV and lighting.

The preferred site for the infrastructure is the old tennis courts site on Ron Chamberlain Drive.

The estimated capital cost of the project is between $4.3 and $5.7 million, and the scope of works is consistent with similar, contemporary play and skate spaces delivered by other local governments across Perth, including the City of Stirling’s Bina Parkland, Briggs Park in the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale, the City of Perth’s Wellington Square and Mills Park in the City of Gosnells.

The Council has agreed to list $200,000 for consideration in the City’s 2022/23 budget to fund the concept design.

Joondalup Mayor Albert Jacob said that many people will benefit from skate and BMX facilities for youth in the City’s southern suburbs.

“There are lots of young families in the Duncraig area, and more facilities for our youth is among the most important issues for local residents,” Mayor Jacob said.

“Percy Doyle Reserve provides the ideal location as the City’s premier sporting and recreation open space, and these facilities will help to fill a critical gap in skate facilities for young people in the southern suburbs, as identified in the City’s Outdoor Youth Recreation Strategy.

“Council’s decision will allow the City’s administration to develop a concept design, including conducting community consultation, and this will confirm the specific nature of facilities and the scope of works required at the site.

“The City will also explore the potential of grant funding to help contribute to capital costs of the project.”

Following the preparation of a concept and community consultation more detailed costings of the project will be undertaken.

The project will then be brought back to Council for a decision on whether to proceed and funding to be included in the five-year Capital Works Program.

Tickets go on sale in November and the concert is held February.

City of Joondalup parks also play host to some of Perth’s best music events including Castaway and By the C.

Culture
It’s hard to find low cost kids events that will keep the littlest creative minds engaged, but one to add to the annual calendar is the Little Feet Festival. Held each year in October, Little Feet Festival is one of the most popular free kids events in Perth. It provides an afternoon of fun activities for children under 12 and is themed each year to create excitement and magic for everyone.

For those with bigger kids to entertain or looking for something a little more cultural, the Joondalup Festival is for you – the jewel of the crown when it comes to events held within the City of Joondalup. The festival, held around March each year, brings together street and cultural performers from around the world and celebrates music, performing arts, art installations and food providing entertainment for everyone.

Art
Public art and murals don’t just make a great backdrop for photos, they also brighten up the streets and invite people to explore the region all year round. The City of Joondalup is filled with public artworks and stunning murals by the likes of Anya Brock, Amok Island and Brandon Ballengée so start exploring and see what you can find.

Immerse yourself in the best of community and Western Australian artworks at one of the City’s two annual art exhibitions. The Community Art Exhibition showcases some of Joondalup’s most talented local artists to the local community and invites those interested to peruse and purchase artworks. The Invitation Art Prize, held in October, is an exhibition of professional artists who are invited to present their artworks to the community with the winner’s piece being acquired by the City. Both shows are worth a wander through and you never know, you may find a unique piece of art prefect for your home or office.

Markets
Markets are a food lovers delight. Whether it be fresh produce at a local farmers market or a food truck fiesta with friends, you will find it within the City of Joondalup.

Poynter Farmers’ Market is a popular fresh produce market run fortnightly at Poynter Primary School in Duncraig. Here you can find fresh bread, aromatic coffee and locally produced goods such as honey, oil and chocolate. You may find a new local favourite here.

Burns Beach Twilight Markets are all about the #nocookwednesday and entice locals to skip the kitchen and dine by the ocean at one of their delicious food trucks. They even have an artisan gift lane plus live music for a truly chilled out vibe.

Big Kid Events like to share their Food Truck Fiesta love across a number of City parks. Each weekend you’ll find them at a different local park creating a buzz and feeding the locals with their relaxed food truck events. With activities for the kids plus live music it is a great family evening out.

Joondalup to host Festival of Motoring

Joondalup Council has given the green light to a two-day motorsport extravaganza within the Joondalup City Centre, incorporating a series of car sprint events.

The Council has agreed to list for consideration $350,000 in its 2022/23 budget to sponsor the 2022 Festival of Motoring, which will be delivered by Justin Hunt Management.

A range of car types will take part in the racing component, making their way around the Joondalup City Centre at speed. Car displays and competitions will also be incorporated into the programming.

The inaugural festival is planned for October 2022 with the potential for the City to sponsor the event again in 2023 and 2024.

It is expected to inject $1million into the local economy and draw tens of thousands of people to the Joondalup City Centre.

Joondalup Mayor Albert Jacob said the City of Joondalup had experience holding and supporting significant events such as the Joondalup Festival, Valentine’s Concert, Kaleidoscope, Luminight and AFL pre-season competition games and is confident the Festival of Motoring will become an iconic event that furthers Joondalup’s reputation as a Destination City.

“Come October, car lovers are going to be in heaven and our City centre will literally be buzzing with cars of all makes, models and eras taking turns around the track and on display,” he said.

“But the action won’t just be on the track, the COVID-safe event will have plenty of family-friendly fun on offer and we expect the flow-on effect for local businesses to be strong.

“Attracting big events to Joondalup is part of the City’s strategy to position Joondalup as a ‘Destination City’ that creates new opportunities for our community and attracts visitors with its diverse mix of iconic events with local, national, and international appeal.”

Justin Hunt said: “My team and I are excited to be working with the City of Joondalup to create another world-class event for their exciting portfolio, we will have more great news and further event details to share in due course”.

Removal of Beach Enclosure

The City of Joondalup in conjunction with the State Government installed a beach enclosure at Sorrento Beach in late 2016, however at its November 2020 meeting, Joondalup Council unanimously resolved to remove the Sorrento Beach enclosure due to the compromised integrity of the structure. Removal of the beach enclosure has been completed.

The City will investigate options for the provision of a replacement enclosure. This will enable the City to adequately investigate and plan appropriately to implement a new enclosure, aided by the lessons learnt from the Sorrento Beach enclosure.

Completion of Visual Art Commission 2020/21 by Paul Kaptein

Sculptor Paul Kaptein has completed his commission for the City of Joondalup’s Visual Art Commission program.

The finished artwork is a beautifully crafted, carved timber bust featuring nautical imagery in detailed relief designs.

As a starting reference point for his artwork, Paul researched the ‘Centaur’ shipwreck (located in Marmion Marine Park) as he explored the themes of marine symbology, ancient mythology, international manufacture, global transits, as well as local shipwreck history and coastal sites.

Paul’s sculptural practice is largely expressed through woodcarving. For this commission, he was interested in the relationship of his contemporary arts practice and its relationship with the ship building tradition – specifically carved figureheads and how they are used to reveal something about the identity of the ship, it’s crew and purpose.

In 2019, Paul was the Overall Winner of the City of Joondalup Invitation Art Prize. The new commission will be a fitting accompaniment to his 2019 winning artwork Mute Figure #10 (Sunset Selfies at The Great Attractor) in the City’s Art Collection.

The artwork will be installed in the foyer of the Council Chambers before being rotated to City Libraries and other City Buildings later in the year.

Title: Mute Figure #11 (the tide to the stars and back again), 2021

Artist: Paul Kaptein

Medium: Laminated hand carved wood and graphite

Size (H x W x D): 51cm x 48cm x 27cm

Public Art Collection

The City delivers a Public Art program that contributes to creating a sense of place, promotes the expression of local identity, and reflects on the shared values of the community.

Public Art is an artwork that has been created by an artist for public display and located in a publicly accessible place, usually outdoors or as part of a civic building such as a library, streetscape or parks.

Public art is designed to celebrate or reflect upon specific values and principles that are shared by a community, and in general, Public Art strives to accentuate and interpret these values in an artistic way, often defining and enhancing the environment in which they are situated.

The City has a significant collection of Public Artwork acquired since 1998. The Public Art Collection now boasts over 22 artworks.

Unleash your inner warrior at health hub

Visitors to Whitfords Nodes Park in Hillarys will soon be able to unleash their inner warrior when the City of Joondalup installs a park warrior obstacle course at the popular health and wellbeing hub.

Already home to a 145-step stairway structure, outdoor fitness equipment and engaging play spaces, the park warrior course (mega course) has been developed to encourage people 12 and over to get outdoors and get active.

To be located near the existing exercise equipment, the course will feature a range of innovative and challenging obstacles configured in a well-considered sequence with a clear start and end point.

The challenge for some users will simply be to complete the course. For others, it might be to beat the ‘clock,’ achieve a PB (personal best time) or to challenge others.

Joondalup Mayor Albert Jacob said the addition of the course would add another challenging fitness element to the health and wellbeing hub.

“The Whitfords Nodes Health and Wellbeing Hub has undoubtedly been one of the City’s great success stories and this new infrastructure will only add to the park’s reputation as the best outdoor fitness hub in Perth,” he said.

“Challenging fitness courses like this are in high demand due to the popularity of TV shows like Australian Ninja Warrior.

“Our City recognises the vital role recreational activities play in building and engaging communities and enhancing community spirit. In these times of COVID-19, never has it been more important for people to get outside in the fresh air to undertake some exercise.

“This already popular location is going to be an even more attractive fitness destination for local residents and visitors from across Perth.”

Associated work will include alterations to the existing footpath network and informal seating.

Construction commences in August and is expected take about two months to complete. The stairway and fitness equipment will remain open during construction.

It celebrates the surrounding native flora and complements the flourishing community garden located in the library courtyard and surrounds. The garden is managed by Duncraig Edible Garden, a community driven project that promotes values of community, sustainability and sharing economies.

2022 Valentine’s Concert

Perth Symphony Orchestra (PSO) and the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) Gospel Choir with Matt Allen brought the music of George Michael to life at the City’s 2022 Valentine’s Concert.

Held outdoors at the picture-perfect Joondalup Resort on Thursday 10 February, a near-capacity crowd of just over 6,000 were on hand to celebrate the music of the man who brought soul to the pop world.

Concert opener Freedom and closer Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me book-ended the setlist. And there were plenty of set highlights in between, including Careless Whisper, Last Christmas, and Wake Me Up Before You Go Go.

This year’s concert added another chapter of success to the storied history of the City’s premier musical event.

Thank you to the valued City’s sponsors and partners to realise this event each year.

Luminight

Luminight attracted thousands of people across the City and beyond for three nights of colour and spectacular fun. Of the many highlights, none shone brighter than the performances of Zap Circus, WA’s fire, SPX and circus performance company. The award winning duo performed the biggest and best acts from their CIRCUS FIRE Spectacular show.

WA lighting designer Christian Lovelady’s installations provided a dazzling trail of lights throughout the illuminate zone. Illuminated robots and ballerinas roamed the site and the pond at Central Park south was transformed thanks to over 800 lily pads, courtesy of local schools and artist Sean Adamas. The maze and silent disco kept many visitors entertained while the live music stage provided a high quality soundtrack.

Joondalup Mayor Albert Jacob said Luminight was a spectacular way to conclude the City’s summer events program. “While the City was obviously disappointed it was unable to hold the Joondalup Festival in 2021, Luminight allowed us to deliver a family-friendly event in a COVID-safe manner and using exclusively WA talent.”

The City acknowledges the valuable contribution of Lotterywest as a Major Supporter of Luminight.
