Safer Venues Western Australia (Inc.) (SVWA) is a not for profit initiative focused on improving the safety and inclusivity of Perth music venues.  

SVWA was established as an community action group in 2016 to promote a necessary change in the culture of Western Australian music venues. SVWA has received State Government funding of $60,000 total from the Contemporary Music Fund (CMF) to deliver a pilot program over the course of three years. The outcomes of the program are twofold:

  1. Enact tangible change in Perth music venues including reduction of sexual harassment and assault; and
  2. Establish a financially sustainable organisation that can provide long term cultural change to reduce gender discrimination and other forms of discrimination in the Perth music industry.    

Safer Venues WA is currently looking for a new Chair Person and additional General Board members to provide strategic direction for the organisation as it enters a new stage of pilot development and execution, and to establish longevity for the organisation. 

The Board meets regularly to guide and govern the development of Safer Venues WA and provide support to the General Manager and the Program Coordinator roles.
