Scarborough Sunset Markets - Summer Series

Now in its third season, The Scarborough Beach Association (SBA) and KINN & Co are delighted to announce the return of the ever popular Scarborough Sunset Markets.

  • Dates:Every Thursday, Oct 31 - Apr 30
  • Time(s):5-9pm
  • Venue:Scarborough Beach

Details

  • Venue Address:Scarborough Beach
  • Ticket Price:Free
  • Type:Summer Markets
  • Audience:Family-Friendly
  • Food & Drink:Food Market Events

Description

Kicking off Thursday October 31 and spanning from the purpose built Scarborough Square down to the crisp white sands of the Amphitheatre, each week the beachfront will once again ignite into a celebration of all that makes this location truly special - mesmerising sunsets, crystal blue ocean, crisp white sands, a foodies’ oasis, thirst quenching bevies, live music, creative artists and curated pop up stores- while encouraging locals, families and visitors to continue rediscovering Scarborough.

Last year’s season saw record crowds of locals and visitors descend on Scarborough each week to spend summer nights on Scarborough Beach with their toes in the sand as they wander through a global market of culinary delights and sensory surprises.

This year promises to be filled with even more mouthwatering food, stunning retail, chilled tunes, arts and engaging entertainment, while we also launch a WAR ON WASTE!

Our WAR ON WASTE aims to;
• reduce waste at the markets;
• introduce reusable containers;
• recycle organic & compostable waste; and
• minimise disposal into landfill

The main sources of waste at the markets are food and plastic plates, cutlery and bottles. Therefore, to ensure we deliver on our vision for a greener market the below strategies are being introduced;

• Patron’s encouraged to BYO plates, cutlery, cups
• Market Eat Kits – we are selling reusable eating kits for patrons including plates and utensils.
• Waste Stations around the markets, at which visitors place waste on a table and our War on Waste Warriors sort through it and dispose of it in the correct bin – reducing contamination and incorrect bin usage.

Fremantle Biennale

The Fremantle Biennale is a unique art event hosting the best in site-responsive art.

  • Dates:Nov 1 - 24
  • Time(s):Session times vary
  • Venue:Various Venues in Fremantle

Details

  • Hosted By:Fremantle Biennale
  • Venue Address:Fremantle
  • Type:Art Exhibitions
  • Audience:Adults
  • Visual Arts:Other Visual Arts

Description

Situated in new and found sites within Fremantle (Western Australia), The Biennale presents invited Australian and international artists who respond to and work with the history, landscape and communities that make-up the rich tapestry of Fremantle.

The Fremantle Biennale creates a platform for the development and presentation of nationally and internationally recognised and experimental site-responsive contemporary art practices; promotes cultural dialogues and exchange of ideas through a program of local, national and international artists, intersecting with our audiences and visitors; reveal, interrogate and celebrate the cultural, social and historical distinctiveness of Fremantle.

Home to the traditional Nyoongar owners, Fremantle's location on the edge of the Indian Ocean is a trade hub with an idiosyncratic and colourful history. Fremantle's European history dates to1828 with the town since clinging to the limestone in the face of the roaring South Westerly (the Fremantle Doctor). Growing through mineral resource booms and busts, the wonderful cultural mix layered by migrant flows has laid the foundations of a creative town with a history of galleries and studios and one of the best cafe, pub and music scenes anywhere.

The Fremantle Biennale adds to this history, commissioning ephemeral site-specific work which responds to the transience and transitional flow of a port town. The Biennale presents a distinct visual arts program that builds on Fremantle's reputation as a creative city.

Description

Untitled (Uura) presents work made over a two-year period of exploration as he worked with new materials and processes of making, finding new forms through which to tell stories and record language. This period of practice marks a departure from his first medium of film and presents a series of carved sculptures and site-specific installations and paintings. Untitled (Uura) explores the artists self and how language, knowledge and persistent memories dwell within and re-surface across generations.

Producing stories in Martu Wangka dialect for his community and younger generations is fundamental to Taylor’s practice. He has a collective approach to filmmaking often working with collaborators and finding opportunities for younger generations and community members to build skills and discover their own practices and methods of storytelling. His films have been shown at The National 2019: New Australian Art at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney alongside collaborator Ishmael Marika, and The Sydney Film Festival 2019 with film making partner Nathan Mewett.

Curtis Taylor asserts narratives of cultural and personal identity, creating immersive spaces occupied by language and ritual that explore the edges of life and death.
