On World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) on June 15, all sections of the Purple Road join together (purple is the symbolic colour of WEAAD).

This year the Canning Council is taking part and will present three community roads to bring the total length of purple road in Western Australia to 100m.

Road artwork created by the Beananging Kwuurt Institute has been selected to be displayed at Parliament House from June 4 to June 14, showcasing a range of stories of hope through creative art mediums.
