Description

ABMUSIC is an Aboriginal Corporation formed in 1986 to support and nurture Aboriginal musicians in Western Australia.

From small beginnings, the Corporation has grown and developed to the point where now, ABMUSIC is a Registered Training Organisation delivering Certificates II through IV from the Music Industry Training Package in a program especially tailored for Australian indigenous people.

Whether you are a beginner in music, can already play or you would like to work in the music business in a support role (e.g. a "roadie", a sound engineer or even a booking agent), ABMUSIC can provide you with the skills and knowledge necessary to prepare you for entry into the competitive world of the Australian Music Industry.

With such facilities as fully equipped percussion and rehearsal studios, practice rooms, a MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) studio, and a "Pro-Tools" recording studio, ABMUSIC uses the latest in technology to develop students' understanding of production and engineering in the contemporary music industry. Students that progress through the three years of study of the Music Industry Training Package and complete the Certificate IV in Music at ABMUSIC are 'job ready' upon graduation.

Services for ABMUSIC students are designed especially for the indigenous community and include;

The "Food for Thought" program wherein students are provided with breakfast on arrival in the morning.
Bus transport from Oats Street Station to and from the College in the morning and after classes.
A Student Support Officer.
Enrolled students can apply for individual tuition on their chosen instrument. Places are limited so they are allocated on a "first come, first served" basis.
Monthly performance opportunities during term time where students are able to practice their skills in performances for their peers and friends and family.

Melville Theatre Company

The Melville Theatre Company was founded in 1982 and presents community productions of plays and musicals.

  • Type:Club,Volunteer,Association,Local Focus
  • Local Clubs:Arts,Music

Details

  • Established:1982
  • Arts:Local Clubs,Music,Performing Arts

Description

The Melville Theatre Company was the brainchild of the late David J. Burton who, in 1982, called a meeting for interested people in the community to form a theatre company in the Melville area.

As a result of this meeting the Melville Theatre Company was born. The newly formed company’s first production was the farce, Not Now Darling. With its second production, The Sound of Music, the young company won the Finley Award for the Best Production of the Year in Community Theatre. Since then, actors and directors have consistently featured in the list of awards at the annual State Drama Festival. In recent times, Melville has taken home three more  Finley awards for Best Play; one for our 2010 production of The Return, in 2013 for Rabbit Hole and the 2014 production of Twelve Angry Men.

Initially our seasons were performed in the Melville Civic Centre, but since 1987, our venue has been the Roy Edinger Centre, on the corner of Stock Road and Canning Highway, Palmyra. For many years we shared this venue with a multitude of other users, which created difficulties for all parties, however, in 1998 we were granted sole management by the City of Melville and have thus been able to create a real theatre within the centre, including raked seating, carpeting and a new lighting and sound system.

Description

A diverse membership base representing the entire value chain from creation (writers’ centres and groups, professional associations such as the Society of Editors and Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) to producers (publishers) and consumers (libraries, writers’ festivals, education providers, bookshops, etc) requires that writingWA understands and represents the needs of an extremely broad community.

The value chain also embraces emerging, established and elite writers – all of whom are of concern to writingWA.
Additionally, writingWA has an extremely large territorial responsibility, providing service delivery on a State-wide basis.
writingWA keeps our growing network of state-wide, interstate and international clients and colleagues informed of new West Australian publications and literary successes via a range of integrated digital communications products including writingWA's website and free fortnightly e-newsletter, writingWA's YouTube channel, and other networked social media.

writingWA receives principal funding from the Western Australian Government through the Department of Culture and the Arts, and from the Federal Government through the Australia Council, its art funding and advisory body.

Increasingly writingWA is reliant on the support of individuals within our community who share our passion and commitment to West Australian literature. Their donations enable writingWA to deliver programmes that would otherwise be beyond our reach. These individuals are our Literary Lions.
