Hundreds of Mandurah Primary School students took to the Makers Lane on Friday morning to celebrate the launch of Emma Blyth’s latest mural.
The mural, located just outside of Make Place on Tuckey Street, depicts an ocean-themed landscape filled with tens of colourful hand-painted fish.
Mandurah Primary School students teamed up with Emma and local not-for-profit The Makers to paint the fish, which were applied to the 32-metre-long mural over the weekend.
The project is part of a revitalisation plan for Mandurah’s CBD spearheaded by The Makers team.
“The mural is the first phase of a plan to activate the laneway, to make it a creative space for people to enjoy and meet others,” team member Skipper Van Peer said earlier this year.
“As we gather more support and funding we hope to be able to integrate furniture and other interactive elements to give the space purpose.”
Ms Van Peer from The Makers said a new garden and benches will complete the project in coming weeks and bring “new life” to the city centre.
Minister for culture and the arts David Temple and newly elected mayor Rhys Williams also attended the event.
