The Goods Shed, one of Western Australia’s oldest surviving railway buildings, was built at Claremont train station for freight loading in 1887. In August 2016, Western Australian cultural organisation FORM, in partnership with LandCorp, Cox Architecture and multiple supporters, returned the shed to its original function as a point of collection, connection and exchange – but with a bit of a difference. Surrounded by planter boxes and beds of  herbs and flowering plants, this charismatic building, which retains many of its original features, is able to accommodate art, installations, learning, performance, and resident experts. It’s a versatile creative project space, open seven days a week in the heart of the Claremont community. FORM’s year-round program involves local and international artist and speaker residencies, a literature festival for young people, and a creative learning program.
