Geoffrey Bolton Lecture 2022: Looking Upriver // Looking Downriver

Dr. Julian Bolleter explores the evolving edges of urban river-space. How they're changing both with the ebb and flow of what is built along them, responding to the needs and aspirations of Perth dwellers, and so too, how the tides are literally turning.

What we do

Established under the State Records Act 2000, the State Records Office is part of the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and supports the State Records Commission in its statutory role under the Act.

By supporting our public sector colleagues in WA we seek to achieve a secure and discoverable record of government that is valued by our community and used to create a legacy for current and future generations of Western Australians.
