Side Walks - Mugshot

Saturday October 5, 2019
14:30 - 15:15

Side Walks is a dynamic, one-day celebration of storytelling in its various forms across Northbridge and the Perth CBD. Bringing together artists, writers, journalists and poets from across multiple disciplines, Side Walks presents six free unique events in venues both usual and unusual. From poetry to crime writing, literature to oral storytelling, these engaging events will inspire, challenge, and delight.

This panel will build on the popularity of the Northbridge Crime Walk to look at the dark and untold stories of our neighbourhood. Join Adie Chapman with two of Western Australia’s best loved crime writers, Sean Cowan and David Whish- Wilson, as they discuss the history of local organised crime and how it has influenced the city as we know it today.
