Perth Festival is back!

The Perth festival is back and bigger than ever, and this year Vision Australia Radio is proud to be a media partner for the Perth Festival 2020.

Perth Festival offers more than 250 events across theatre, music, dance, opera, film, visual arts and literature and ideas – many of them free – will dazzle audiences from near and far from 7 February to 1 March.

Vision Australia Radio will be focusing its attention on promoting the large range of accessible events and spaces and interviewing festival organisers on the radio programs, while Vision Australia will provide advice to the organisers in how to best support the needs of the blind community and those who have low vision.
