Fremantle

Markets, restaurants, breweries, bars, history – you’ll find it all in Fremantle. Known for its maritime history, the port city is also home to the Fremantle Prison, which housed convicts from the 1850s to 1991, and the Round House, an 1831 building which also briefly served as a jail. If you’re chasing a good feed, the cappuccino strip is home to numerous Italian restaurants, Mexican joints, and pubs, while the port hosts a brewery and fish & chip shops. If you’re after some local crafts, a trip to the Fremantle Markets is always great value.

Description

“I invite you to journey through time and reflect on the mystical story of Aboriginal life, prior to colonisation, on this great land. A story that spans many tens of thousands of years. Storyline is a collection of my art that reflects the respect that I, and many others have, for the original custodians of this amazing land. It’s about the story I was never taught at school as a young boy growing up in WA. It’s about the wonderful connection to land, culture, spirit and community that is the trademark of the worlds oldest living culture.”

Join with me and imagine a time long ago in Australia’s own Garden of Eden.

On our Beach is a tender, moving work that will take you on an emotional journey below the surface of Australian identity.

Protest and Unrest

A new exhibition examining the history of protests and conditions at Fremantle Prison using personal accounts from prisoners, officers and the administration.

  • Dates:May 7 - Nov 20
  • Venue:Fremantle Prison

Details

  • Type:Museum events
  • Audience:Adults,For teens 13-17,For seniors

Description

From violent riots to peaceful sit-outs, Fremantle Prison's new exhibition Protest and Unrest explores the conditions and regime under which prisoners lived, why they felt the need to protest and the ways in which they expressed their dissatisfaction.

Imprisonment means the loss of freedom, but do prisoners also lose their right to basic hygiene, decent food, personal space and safety? If they are dissatisfied how do they fight for change?

Several protests are examined in detail, using personal accounts from prisoners, officers and the administration. The rotten food, appalling living conditions and accusations of torture and abused were used as justification by prisoners for pushing back against authority.

Showing objects never displayed before, such as improvised weapons from the 1988 riot, an electric battery box and prisoner graffiti, this exhibition presents a confronting view of life on the inside.

Visitors will be challenged by the question: in the same situation would you protest too?
