Out and About
Art and About around ECU Mt Lawley
Most University Campuses have an element of public art or interesting architecture so one day when we were nearby exploring the Inglewood Street Art we stopped in for a little look around Edith Cowan University's Mt Lawley campus. We have previously wandered through the ECU Joondalup campus and also the University of WA campus.
Having headed to Inglewood to coincide with the flowering of the jacaranda trees and finding very few in Inglewood we were delighted to find some beautiful trees around the ECU campus.
We crossed the road for a closer look at Ron Stone Park...
and then wandered around the WAAPA Building where students were arriving for rehearsals or examinations.
past the Campus Centre ...
and around the back where we discovered the funky hub of the campus at The Edith.
before discovering the designs on the media building.
The buildings integrate beautifully with the gardens.
The unique Kurongkurl Katitjin (coming together to learn) Centre for Indigenous Education and Research...
features Indigenous artworks on the paving....
and the Rock Solid Foundations acknowledging Indigenous graduates over the decades from the 1950s to the present day and also reflecting on the legend of the Seven Sisters.
We spent just under an hour wandering around on a Sunday when the campus was all but deserted. If you want to enjoy the on site venues it might be worth coming during the university semester to enjoy the campus vibe.
In the spirit of reconciliation Out and About- Family Nature Connection acknowledges the traditional owners of the Wadjak boodjar (Perth land) and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
