Non-profit cultural organisation FORM is transforming one of Perth's oldest railway precincts, at Claremont Station, into a holistic community arts hub integrating the Goods Shed, the former Station Master's House, the adjoining yard and the historic, disused Platform 3.
Throughout the 1920s and 1930s when everyone traveled by train, the life of Claremont happened at the platform and the wider station precinct. It was the site of meetings and partings by so many travelers passing between station platforms. Where goods were loaded and unloaded in the rail yard, bound for the Royal Show. Where letters to loved ones from departing soldiers were released from troop train windows, weighted with a coin, and picked up and posted by children who tore down to the station at the sound of a whistle.
We want to bring that life back to the Station precinct, creating a space where heritage, creativity and activity connect.
Currently, Platform 3 is disused and enclosed in cyclone fencing. We want to transform this significant heritage site with an interpretive, etched glass panel embedded with history, accessible from both east and west and running the length of the platform.
To make the transformed Station Master's Platform a reality, we need to demonstrate community support for this project to Lotterywest by gathering 1000 signatures in support of the initiative.
