FREMANTLE FASHION COLLECTIVE ART AT ROUNDHOUSE

Posted in art, city of fremantle, fashion, roundhouse, Uncategorized by freoview on November 14, 2017

 

There is an interesting art show on inside the Fremantle Roundhouse this Wednesday evening between 6.30 and 8pm.

Renowned Freo textile artist Kelsey Ashe has created limited edition artworks for the Fremantle Fashion Collective. All proceeds will go to the collective to support upcoming fashion designers.

Kelsey Ashe’s detailed drawings are hand embellished and have a Fremantle theme, so they are something different and not to be missed.

While up on Arthur Head enjoy a beautiful sunset and the last rays of sunshine of the day on the sublime Felice Varini artwork along High Street.

PURPOSE BUILT FREO INDIGENOUS CENTRE FEASIBILITY STUDY

Posted in aboriginal, arthur head, city of fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on November 7, 2017

 

The FPOL Committee of the City of Fremantle will deliberate on Wednesday to approve a feasibility study for a purpose built indigenous centre in central Fremantle or on Victoria Quay.

After consultation with the local Wajuk Noongar community over the last few months it was decided that the indigenous people in Fremantle preferred a purpose built cultural centre.

The Walyalup Aboriginal Cultural Centre at Captain’s Lane on Arthur’s Head did not really go off. It was always going to be an uphill battle there, as the location and the small Pilot’s Cottage were inappropriate and too small for a cultural centre.

SO LUCKY TO LIVE IN FREMANTLE

Posted in aboriginal, city of fremantle, fremantle festival, history, indigenous, Uncategorized by freoview on November 5, 2017

 

 

Walking around Arthur Head this morning I considered myself very lucky to live in such a beautiful place as Fremantle.

I started with my traditional morning Espresso at Chalkys cafe near the Roundhouse, walked up the steps to have a chat with Glen at the Glen Cowans Underwater Photography Gallery, and wandered down to Bathers Beach where the Indian Ocean water looked sublime and so refreshing, but I did not have my bathers with me.

Back to the High Tide hub next to the Roundhouse where I attended Ghost Ship to listen to Aboriginal history, and I will write a blog post about that in more detail tomorrow.

Ghost Ship is on again from 6-7 pm this evening with a light show. Listen to the story of Yagan, and how important Rottnest Island is to the Wadjuk people.

The Fremantle Festival ends today from 3.30 at Kings Square with the first shopping trolley race, live music and entertainment, so come along.

Before that from 2-4 pm there is free live music in the courtyard of the Fremantle Arts Centre.

The High Tide Biennale will continue for another week, so check out the program as there is some very good stuff in it.

Is it any wonder I love Freo so much?!

FADED NEON SHOW IS ON RECORD

Posted in art, city of fremantle, fremantle festival, Uncategorized by freoview on November 3, 2017

 

 

There is an interesting light exhibition upstairs at Mills Records at Fremantle’s Kings Square as part of the HIGH TIDE biennale for this year’s Fremantle Festival.

Zora Kreuzer and George Howlett have created the site-specific light installation Faded Neon.

The High Tide blurb reads as follows:

Working collaboratively with recycled music industry paraphernalia, the artists will ‘live’ in Mills Records. For 72 years this building has been a continuous and rich hub for music and culture in Fremantle.

Howlett and Kreuzer become the gatekeepers of the gallery and adjacent lane, while light and colour inform in the production and distribution of music. This is a dance between artists, light and the building in the iconic Mills Records.

Blank Space (Mills Records), 22 Adelaide St, Fremantle
Mon 30 Oct- Sun 12 Nov
10am – 5pm, Thur – Sun

NEW FREMANTLE PERFORMING ARTISTS

 

Fremantle Performing Artists

 

There is a new community theatre company with a difference. They don’t just perform stage plays, and don’t just concentrate on traditional theatre.

Fremantle Performing Artists is a new community group which is looking for new members.

If you or somebody you know is interested in the performing arts, regardless of experience level, send an email to brenton.foale@outlook.com or contact Brenton Foale on 0457447333.

At the moment FPA are asking for expressions of interest, while they build the group. In the coming weeks they will be holding a welcome event.

The Fremantle Performing Artists will be open to two different age groups, with separate sessions for each group. For members aged 13 to 18, and aged 19 & over.

Experience in the performing arts is not necessary, you will develop these skills and experience through continued workshops with industry professionals.

Workshops will include traditional theatre, street theatre, filmmaking, and more. Through workshops you will build confidence, develop new skills and expand on existing skills.

Each year the Fremantle Performing Artists plan to perform a minimum of two stage productions.

Organiser, Brenton Foale, has in excess of 35 years experience in the entertainment industry, including stage, screen, and television.
