Undertow Exhibition – Perth Festival

 

A wave crashes upon the shore, the forces of deep oceans far and wide propelling it towards the coastline. Each and every wave writes a story, a history, as it crashes upon sandy or rocky shores. The undertow pulls backwards, out to sea, in a counter current full of tension and unease as the next wave gathers power and tumbles forward, ready to write another story. Undertow is about what sits below, what can’t always be seen, but is always felt. It is about going against the current, about deep reflection upon our worlds and lives and more than anything, it is about not resting comfortably in any truth which is not our own. Glenn Iseger-Pilkington

Flanked by deep waters, our state and our nation’s connection with the coast is complex and multilayered. From narratives of the beginning of time, of creation, to our collective imaginings of the future, the oceans that surround our island continent and the oceans and seas of our global community are sites of tradition, transformation, transience, terror, and turmoil. In the context of Australia, these expansive waters take up appropriate space in the anthologies of our continent, they are economic highways, pathways to freedom, colonial carriageways, vessels of knowledge – they are entities of promise, but also of betrayal.  Undertow explores the relationships we have with the oceans and seas, ever-changing bodies of water in constant flux, as places of arrival and departure, places of transformation and as places of deep ancestral connection. Undertow brings together artists working in a range of modes and materials, from large format cyanotype, to glass neon, installation, photographic and filmic work, celebrating the many ways artists explore and document our worlds, creating new ways of reflecting upon history and reality and in doing so offering us alternative ways to consider and connect narratives and experiences. Check out the Fremantle Arts Centre website for more information, including participating artists.

FREE Film Friday | Walkabout

 

A story of two children, one a teenage schoolgirl and the other her little brother, who are put into a disturbing and unexpected situation.

A white teenaged schoolgirl, her younger brother, and their father drive from their home in Sydney into the Australian outback, ostensibly for a picnic. As they prepare to eat, the father draws a gun and begins firing at the children. The boy believes it to be a game, but the daughter realizes her father is attempting to murder them, and flees with her brother, seeking shelter behind rocks. She watches as her father sets their car on fire and shoots himself in the head. The girl conceals the suicide from her brother, retrieves some of the picnic food, and leads him away from the scene, attempting to walk home through the desert. By the middle of the next day, they are weak and the boy can barely walk. Discovering a small water hole with a fruiting tree, they spend the day playing, bathing, and resting. By the next morning, the water has dried up. They are then discovered by an Aboriginal boy.

FREE Film Friday – Desert Tracks

 

A group of white city dwellers from diverse backgrounds and four different countries spends 10 days with the Pitjantjatjara people.

A group of white city dwellers from diverse backgrounds and four different countries spends 10 days with the Pitjantjatjara people in the middle of the Central Australian desert. They share in the nomadic Pitjantjatjara lifestyle, evolved over 40,000 years, where the essence of community and the spirit of the land bond together.

 

These “students of life” learn how to live with the elements, how to hunt and gather food, how to cook and how to find water. They are also granted the rare privilege of being taken to sacred sites and having their significance and importance explained by the traditional owners. Desert Tracks documents this important and fascinating experiment in breaking down cultural and racial barriers.

Supporting Positive Behaviour Change | WEBINAR

 

To change behaviour, we need to understand why it is occurring. Challenging behaviour happens, not because the person who has Autism is trying to be ‘difficult’, but because they are responding to a situation in the only way they know-how. Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is an approach that helps us move closer to understanding the cause of the behaviour and what the person is getting out of it so that we can support them to more effectively meet their needs.
: ○ Why Positive Behaviour Support is an effective approach ○ The benefits of a personal profile and how to develop one ○ The steps to understanding the function of a behaviour
: This workshop is for parents and relatives of children with Autism up to 17 years of age.
