Place Activation

Project overview

Curtin University creates a lively cultural hub at our Perth campus, one that connects our students and staff with the broader community. Through Place Activation, we ensure our campus is an inclusive, engaging and enjoyable destination, where students and staff are at home and the wider community feels welcome.

Project features

Our award-winning place activation program Explore Curtin includes:
Food Trucks, Disc Golf, Geocaching, Work Integrated Learning programs for students, performances from musicians, dancers, comedians, and circus performers.

In addition, to enhance place-making Curtin has giant games of Chess, Connect4, Foosball and Skittles that break up the study day and allow for down-time in between classes. Flexible, casual outdoor furniture such as bean bags, wooden benches, mist-fans and table settings provide shade and shelter in break time on University grounds. There are also colourful fun-cubes (containers) on campus that offer alternative resting places with books, electronic games, gardening activities and even a swing!

Place Activation encourages community life on campus, to share all the University has to offer including one of the largest university galleries in the country, the stunning John Curtin Gallery, and the state-of-the-art gym and sports complex, Curtin Stadium, which are both open to the public daily.
