Before the Siren
LARA THOMS & SNAPCAT
PERTH INTERNATIONAL ARTS FESTIVAL
Sunday 19 February, 5-7pm
Fremantle Oval, Parry St Fremantle
Melbourne artist Lara Thoms and Snapcat collaborate on a large-scale public artwork celebrating women’s sports teams, girl gangs and social clubs at Fremantle Oval.
With the Freo Dockers being one of only eight teams selected for the inaugural AFL National Women’s League in 2017, Before the Siren is a timely exploration of how women gather socially, politically and recreationally across generations.
Community activism, art and sport combine as part half-time entertainment and part political rally – an event not to be missed!
