Talking Couches
(AUSTRALIA)

Couches are one of the greatest inventions of all time. They're where we relax and unwind after a long day. They’re also where we contemplate life, share our thoughts and feel at home.

Sit back and chill out this summer on one of our comfy Festival Talking Couches, situated at key locations around the City, including at Perth Writers Festival Family Day. These eclectic lounges have been radically redesigned by young people and will amuse, inspire and beguile with a prerecorded selection of their stories, thoughts and hopes for the future.

Coordinated by Perth artist Lewis Horne.
