Interview with Sarah Booth – Freo Mover & Shaker

Sarah Booth has a broad resume with a central focus: community. She currently acts as General Manager of Fremantle-based urban-renewal organisation, Spacemarket, and as Community Development Lead with property groups, Hesperia and Fini.

To put it simply in the language of the 70s, Sarah is a Mover and a Shaker. She gets things going. She asks questions. She doesn’t rest. And she loves Fremantle inside out.
With over 15 years’ experience working nationally in the property and engagement space, Sarah has a special passion for turning vacant buildings and precincts into healthy, vibrant places of creativity and connection.

Recent projects she’s been involved with around Freo include Victoria Hall, Elders Woolstores and the South Terrace Piazza.
In past lives Sarah has been acting editor of Assemble Papers, a music writer for Oyster magazine, a café-owner in Collingwood, a florist, and worked in the art department at the ABC. Sarah believes in collaboration, providing access – and ghosts.
Sarah is currently a board member of the Fremantle Chamber of Commerce, Chair of the East End Arts Precinct; and in 2024 was awarded joint Fremantle Community Citizen of the Year.

Our editor, Michael Barker, was very pleased to catch up with Sarah Booth this week to discover just what drives her passion for Freo.
