Jerome Pearce (Information and Cultural Exchange ICE)

Information and Cultural Exchange (ICE) presents Pearls of Granville: A Tour of Architecture and Suburb. Pearls of Granville is a guided minibus tour (with iPad narrative) of the unique architecture and rich social history (from the late 1880s to the present) of Granville in Western Sydney. Idiosyncratic and iconoclastic, Pearls of Granville will be a rich exploration (and narrative) of selected architectural 'wonders', aesthetic and cultural transition and related community history.

Pearls of Granville will showcase buildings of recognised and recorded architectural and cultural significance as well as revealing the secrets of buildings usually known only to locals. Enriching this aesthetic juxtaposition would be the inclusion of social history, personal story and archive via direct exposition (tour guides) and archives (iPad).

Traversing today’s vibrant multicultural Granville the Pearls of Granville tour will detail/reveal a rich trove of community memory and archive as it explores Granville’s architectural wonders, aesthetic and cultural transitions and related community histories - high and low points (and occasional infamy).

Saturday 2 November (11am to 2pm)
Sunday 3 November (11am to 2pm)
Saturday 9 November (11am to 2pm)
