Unveiling of Mary Raine mural in celebration of International Women’s Day 2021

Our Director, Dr Amanda Cleaver, spoke with 98.5 Sonshine FM on International Women’s Day, 8 March 2021, celebrating the legacy of Mary Raine at the unveiling of a larger than life mural in Raine Square.

The mural was commissioned by Raine Square, the Charter Hall Group, in celebration of Mary Raine’s success as a businesswoman, philanthropist and founder of the Raine Medical Research Foundation.

The mural is located in Queen Lane and was painted by local street artist Jerome Davenport from Blank Walls, a Perth-based art organisation. The mural includes a QR code that takes people to a documentary-style video providing the history of Mary Raine’s legacy, accessible here.

We encourage you to take a stroll through the laneways of Raine Square to experience this modern take on a piece of Perth’s history.

Take a look at the mural and hear more about Mary Raine’s history in the video recording of the interview with Kriste from 98.5 Sonshine FM and Dr Amanda Cleaver, accessible here.
