Quiet Hour

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.

Karratha Gecko Ensembles are on sale for Term 4!

Gecko Ensembles are Barking Gecko Theatre's weekly drama classes for children. It’s where self-expression leads to self-confidence, stretching their imaginations in exciting directions. Gecko Ensembles question, explore, imagine and create.

Gecko Ensembles focus on the learning that comes from engaging with drama processes, rather than focussing on an end of term production. Through exploring some of life's big questions children develop collaboration and communication skills and build resilience and empathy. They challenge themselves, listen to each other, learn new skills and most importantly, have fun!

Gecko Ensembles celebrate children’s diverse ideas, interests and imagination. Children act as our creative consultants, exploring the same content as Barking Gecko’s artistic teams are exploring in our rehearsal rooms.

At Barking Gecko Theatre we believe when children’s creativity is nurtured, their potential is endless!
