Place Activation @ Curtin

Curtin’s Place Activation team host activities, workshops and performances on campus! To get an email on Monday morning to let you know what we are doing on campus for the week, sign up here.

DIY Umbrella Painting

Winter is coming… but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Literally! Join us this Wednesday 31 May for a DIY umbrella painting workshop in Atkinson Forum. Students, staff and visitors are all invited to come along anytime from 11.30am – 1.30pm. Umbrellas and paints will be available for you to use and keep for free so come on down and give the rain something colourful to fall on this winter!

Pop-Up Skate Park

Due to more challenging weather conditions, the pop-up skate park was postponed and will now be held this FRIDAY 2 JUNE. Everything else regarding this event will carry on as usual so make sure you join us for an epic skate session in Lower Henderson from 11.00am – 6.00pm on Friday 2 June! There will be a few skateboards and helmets provided otherwise you’re more than welcome to bring your own if you prefer. We’ll have a DJ pumping beats throughout the day and there will be a skills clinic if you’re interested in picking up some beginners tips and tricks.

If you aren’t able to make this one don’t worry because the Pop-Up Skate Park will be back on later dates:

  • Friday 25 August
  • Friday 20 October

    Hi Is it possible to speak to someone about the performers costs and contact details please? The Professionals @ Curtin group will be having an end of financial year function and we were thinking of seeing whether one of the performers used by Park’d Performers might be available to provide some light entertainment. Thanks!
