Poets Nandi Chinna and Scott-Patrick Mitchell will take guests on a tour of the historic house and grounds to talk about their experiences as INSPIRE Writers in Residence at Woodbridge. Lunch will follow the tour in the on-site cafe, Riverside at Woodbridge.
Join us at this special event, run in partnership with the onsite café, Riverside at Woodbridge, especially for the 2023 Australian Heritage Festival.
Woodbridge is one of Perth’s most valued heritage places. In addition to its architectural significance it has a rich collection of stories about the people who lived there.
Find out more about the stories of this former family home, school and Old Women’s Home and how they inspired works by Nandi and Scott-Patrick.
The INSPIRE Writer in Residence initiative is a partnership between the National Trust of Western Australia and the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.
