Joondalup’s history up in lights

Everyone who lives in or has visited this great region and coastline has a story to tell.

For Kaleidoscope 2018, Joondalup Libraries engaged local artist Roly Skender to work with the local history team to create a visual history of the region. The outcome, Joondalup – a Pictorial History, integrated local resident and pioneer stories, reflections and photographs from the Joondalup Libraries pictorial and oral history collections.

Joondalup – A Pictorial History has now been uploaded to the City’s Youtube channel for all to watch, reflect and enjoy.
