QUIETHOUR brings you an hour once a week to relax detach and refocus yourself from your busy every day life!
- Dates:Every Tuesday
- Venue:Wanangkura Stadium
QUIETHOUR is an initiative aimed at minimising visual and auditory stimulation and distractions to create a more inclusive and accessible environment for people who are sensitive to excessive stimuli.
Once a week, on Tuesdays between 10-11am, we'll lower the music levels throughout the gym and dim the lights in the crèche at Wanangkura Stadium.
All members and casual attendees are welcome to access the facility during this time, but we request that you help keep noise to a minimum.
While we will take all reasonable steps to minimise stimulus during the specified times, completely eliminating noise and light in the facility is not possible. Management plans should be explored with individuals / their carers in cases of extreme sensitivity
It should be noted that a distraction free, low stimuli environment can be beneficial for everybody, not just individuals who are sensitive to excessive stimuli. Research indicates that constantly being switched on (to bright lights, loud noises and whatever's happening on our phones/computers) can lead to a range of ailments, including: anxiety, insomnia, obesity, hypertension, poor heart health, impaired immune function and hormonal imbalances.

'Where We Go to Paint' refers to the many places the Spinifex Hill Artists ‘go’ to paint, whether that be by physical or intangible means. This diverse body of work explores the idea of ‘where’ - where each artist has come from; where the group, as a whole, has come from; and where, as South Hedland’s only Aboriginal art collective, they are going as their individual paths converge under the roof of a new home, the Spinifex Hill Project Space.
