Activate Perth is delighted to announce that Ragen Haythorpe has come on board as General Manager Special Projects. Ragen has an extensive arts and retail background including time with the Art Gallery of Western Australia, AMP Capital and the Fashion Council WA delivering one of the cities largest annual Festival events. She will assist with our program to take Perth from vacant to vibrant by placing tenants into perennially empty retail & office spaces “rent-free” and adding some spit and polish to our activations around town - including the much lauded Activated Artwalk. Activate Perth is working with the community to inject vibrancy and positive experiences into the city.

 Activate Perth Chair Di Bain said the support of the City of Perth for our Fill This Space program has made it possible for our not-for-profit organisation to engage Ragen as a dedicated driver of this vital program. “Thank you to the Commissioners and the staff at the City for supporting Activate Perth’s endeavours. A huge thank you to our other founding partners and sponsors including Lendlease, Linc Property, the WA Planning Commission, Home Away (Expedia Group) and Lavan Legal.” "Ragen is a passionate advocate for Perth whose connections and commitment to making the City place of opportunity will see this program thrive in Perth”.
