The stories in this exhibition are found in records created by government departments, including the CSIRO, Department of Defence and ABC. They show how Western Australians have interacted with the state’s unique wildlife and highlight changing attitudes towards animals and the environment.
Which animal was the target of a military campaign? What now beloved animal was dismissed as an annoying rodent? Why is there a whale tooth in the national archival collection?
Grab your binoculars, get out your field guide and spot your favourite animals in this expedition to the Wild West.

Wild West Exhibition on the Superscreen

 

Western Australian animals have been targeted as pests by locals and farmers. Some have been exploited for profit and hunted to near extinction. Native fauna have been celebrated as emblems and studied by scientists. They have been captured in photographs and in cages.
The stories in this exhibition are found in records created by government departments, including the CSIRO, Department of Defence and ABC. They show how Western Australians have interacted with the state’s unique wildlife and highlight changing attitudes towards animals and the environment.
Which animal was the target of a military campaign? What now beloved animal was dismissed as an annoying rodent? Why is there a whale tooth in the national archival collection?
Grab your binoculars, get out your field guide and spot your favourite animals in this expedition to the Wild West.
This digital exhibition is a sneak peak of the fascinating images and objects on display at the National Archive of Australia.

Wild West Exhibition on the Superscreen

 

Western Australian animals have been targeted as pests by locals and farmers. Some have been exploited for profit and hunted to near extinction. Native fauna have been celebrated as emblems and studied by scientists. They have been captured in photographs and in cages.
The stories in this exhibition are found in records created by government departments, including the CSIRO, Department of Defence and ABC. They show how Western Australians have interacted with the state’s unique wildlife and highlight changing attitudes towards animals and the environment.
Which animal was the target of a military campaign? What now beloved animal was dismissed as an annoying rodent? Why is there a whale tooth in the national archival collection?
Grab your binoculars, get out your field guide and spot your favourite animals in this expedition to the Wild West.
This digital exhibition is a sneak peak of the fascinating images and objects on display at the National Archive of Australia.

Community Tree Planting – Lanchester Way Reserve, Stirling

 

Gather your friends, family and neighbours and join us in planting street trees in your neighbourhood.

The event is an opportunity to:

  • Meet your neighbours and build a sense of community
  • Improve the appearance of your street and add value to your property
  • Help make your street and suburb a greener and more liveable place
  • Learn more about planting trees and how to care for them

Don’t miss out! Make sure you RSVP to sign-up to this Community Tree Planting Event. If you’re a resident who has a street tree planned for the verge alongside your property, don’t forget to select “after-care pack” – by participating, you are eligible for an after-care pack for the new trees.

The pack includes soil conditioner and fertiliser, soil wetter, a drink bottle, a bucket, a kids activity booklet, a bottle of hand sanitiser and more. Participation can be as much as assisting to plant the tree, or as little as coming out when the volunteers are planting and name the tree (we provide tree tags so residents are able to name their trees).

Don’t worry, you won’t have to dig any holes, the City will be doing the heavy lifting! The tree planting is done by you, the volunteers and residents, by working in teams alongside a volunteer Tree Captain. The Tree Captains guide you to the trees that need planting demonstrate the tree planting process.

The City recommends you bring your own gardening gloves, wear closed-in shoes, a hat and sunscreen. On arrival to the event, volunteers and residents will be asked to register and an induction will be carried out prior to tree planting activities. This is a family friendly event, however, please ensure children are supervised at all times during planting activities (although there will be traffic management in place, tree planting takes place on the road side).

Please note the event is subject to being cancelled or rescheduled where weather conditions are bad or where COVID-19 restrictions are in place and limiting. Please ensure you check for email updates closer to the event date.

Preserving the Harvest

 

Preserving The Harvest presented by Ecoburbia and brought to you by Switch Your Thinking

In National Science Week 2021, come and explore the science behind preserving your food and making the most of seasonal produce!

 

About this event

National Science Week 2021, Food for Thought, explores the science of food and food innovations. But how about stepping back in time and discovering the secrets of preserving seasonal harvests?

Does your garden produce an all-at-once, bumper crop? And how can we take advantage of cheap, seasonal produce? This session will cover how to get more out of your fruit and vegetables by preserving using a variety of methods. Methods covered will include “canning” using the water bath method, freezing, drying produce using the sun, plus pickles, olive preserving, cordials, jam making and even simple cheese making. You will learn the science behind safe preserving and there will be plenty of time to share your favourite preserving recipes.

Suitable for ages 10 years and over. Tea, coffee and snacks will be provided. Please bring your own cup and water bottle.

This National Science Week project is brought to you by Switch your Thinking and the City of Kwinana and supported by the Australian Government.

This venue is wheelchair accessible and features an accessible toilet and accessible parking. *If you require an Auslan interpreter for the workshop, please email mail@switchyourthinking.com

Wild West Exhibition on the Superscreen

 

Western Australian animals have been targeted as pests by locals and farmers. Some have been exploited for profit and hunted to near extinction. Native fauna have been celebrated as emblems and studied by scientists. They have been captured in photographs and in cages.
The stories in this exhibition are found in records created by government departments, including the CSIRO, Department of Defence and ABC. They show how Western Australians have interacted with the state’s unique wildlife and highlight changing attitudes towards animals and the environment.
Which animal was the target of a military campaign? What now beloved animal was dismissed as an annoying rodent? Why is there a whale tooth in the national archival collection?
Grab your binoculars, get out your field guide and spot your favourite animals in this expedition to the Wild West.
This digital exhibition is a sneak peak of the fascinating images and objects on display at the National Archive of Australia.

Wild West Exhibition on the Superscreen

 

Western Australian animals have been targeted as pests by locals and farmers. Some have been exploited for profit and hunted to near extinction. Native fauna have been celebrated as emblems and studied by scientists. They have been captured in photographs and in cages.
The stories in this exhibition are found in records created by government departments, including the CSIRO, Department of Defence and ABC. They show how Western Australians have interacted with the state’s unique wildlife and highlight changing attitudes towards animals and the environment.
Which animal was the target of a military campaign? What now beloved animal was dismissed as an annoying rodent? Why is there a whale tooth in the national archival collection?
Grab your binoculars, get out your field guide and spot your favourite animals in this expedition to the Wild West.
This digital exhibition is a sneak peak of the fascinating images and objects on display at the National Archive of Australia.

NAIDOC WEEK – FIRESTARTER – THE STORY OF BANGARRA

 

MOVIE SCREENING – FIRESTARTER – THE STORY OF BANGARRA

NAIDOC Week update

Due to uncertainty regarding COVID-19 restrictions next week, we have made the difficult decision to postpone some of our face to face NAIDOC Week events and deliver some activities online.

Thank you to everyone who has already made a booking for events.

Some events delivered by our NAIDOC Week partners may go ahead, pending announcements to be made later this week. For other events we are looking at alternative dates or delivery and will be in touch soon to let you know the plan.

We know it is extremely disappointing for many in our community who were looking forward to our NAIDOC Week celebrations, especially as last year’s events were also postponed due to COVID-19.

We’d especially like to thank all of our NAIDOC Week stakeholders, artists, workshop presenters and partners for being so flexible and working with us to ensure the events go ahead either next week or at a later date.

Thank you for your patience and we will be in touch soon with more details.

 

Sunday 4 July, 5.45pm – 8:30pm

Backlot Theatre, 21 Simpson Street, West Perth

Bookings essential

Join us in the foyer for pre-screening finger food by Indigenous caters Gather Foods at 5:45pm.

Firestarter – The Story of Bangarra is a historically important film that takes the viewer through Bangarra’s birth and spectacular growth to where we are today entering our 4th decade. It recognises Bangarra’s early founders and tells the story of how three young Aboriginal brothers – Stephen, David and Russell Page – turned the newly born dance group into one of Australia’s leading performing arts companies. Through the eyes of the Page brothers and company alumni, Firestarter explores the loss and reclaiming of culture, the burden of intergenerational trauma and crucially, the extraordinary power of art as a messenger for social change and healing.

The documentary features remarkable archival footage and interviews with those integral to Bangarra’s establishment, including co-founders Carole Johnson, Cheryl Stone along with a number of former dancers and creatives.

Enjoy this free screening at the Backlot Theatre, as well as complimentary popcorn and water.
