The Connection Project


At this time partnership and collaboration is needed more than ever, this is why CircuitWest and Perth Festival are coming together to provide “The Connection Project”.  The diversity of our Western Australian sector is huge from technicians to regional venues, artists to arts managers. We recognize we play a role in connecting us all and that by coming together our organisations can provide the program to the widest possible reach for the sector.

This project is a response to COVID-19 and its associated challenges and stress that aims to support you through this period of time. The project will last for three months at this stage as we realise the state of the world changes each day.

On Zoom each fortnight three outstanding psychologists, will unpack the psychological responses that we may be experiencing, how they affect us, and how to understand them. We also invite you to join a series of small group sessions each fortnight with one of the psychologists to unpack what was discussed in the large group and provide a place for connection and sharing.
