Details

Description

The Aboriginal Cultural Material Committee (ACMC) advises the Minister for Indigenous Affairs on matters relating to Aboriginal heritage. The Committee consists of Aboriginal men and women from different parts of Western Australia to ensure culturally appropriate decisions are made about sensitive material or sites. One of the members has to be a specialist anthropologist. There are also three ex-officio members from the Department of Indigenous Affairs, the WA Museum and the Department of Regional Development and Lands.


CMC functions

Under the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 the ACMC is established as an advisory body.
The Committee evaluates the importance of Aboriginal sites on behalf of the community and recommends recordings and preserving the traditional Aboriginal lore related to sites (if appropriate).

The role of the Committee in considering an application for land development consists of:
1. Determining whether a site exists under section 5 of the AHA.
2. If it is determined that a site exists, then the significance of the site is evaluated under section 39(2).
3. Recommending to the Minister whether to grant or decline consent to the applicant to use the land, and whether conditions should apply to any consent granted.

ACMC meetings
The ACMC meets every first Wednesday of the month except in January.

Prior to each meeting the Committee advertises all applications it has received on the DIA website and in the West Australian to provide the information to the public. Applications for land development (s18 notices) have to be submitted before the advertised closing date. Applications submitted after the closing date will not be considered for the upcoming ACMC meeting. They will be considered for assessment for the meeting after.

Application requirements
All applications that are submitted to the ACMC must meet certain requirements so the ACMC can make an informed decision under the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 (please note that the number of copies of documents (both hard copy and electronic format) required to be submitted has recently changed):

The section 18 application form must be completed & signed by the owner of the land and/or applicant. An applicant who is not the owner of the land must include a letter of authorisation signed by the land owner to undertake the purpose described in the application.
A cover letter addressing the application and supporting documentation.
A list of attachments/inclusions, e.g. Certificates of Title, photographs, maps.
Final coloured versions of Aboriginal heritage survey reports. Draft reports will not be accepted.
DIA Aboriginal site recording forms must be submitted for all newly recorded sites and all previously registered sites that have new information recorded as part of the s18 application process. All photographs, diagrams and maps must be in colour. Site recording forms are considered as part of the application.
Five copies of all documents are required, collated to make five individual ‘packages’ with all attachments and inclusions (but not in a bound single volume). All maps / diagrams / photographs must be in colour for each copy.
Two digital copies of the application package, inclusive of all attachments, maps, spatial data (shapefile format preferred), on CD or other digital media.

After evaluating the s18 Notice, the ACMC makes recommendations to the Minister for Indigenous Affairs regarding the Heritage values of affected areas. The Minister makes the final decision on whether consent for a s18 application will be granted and under what, if any, conditions.

Description

The Western Australian Arthritis & Rheumatism Foundation (WAARF) was inaugurated in October 1972, as a non-government organisation, through the efforts of Drs Phyllis Goatcher, Evan Owen and Roger Dawkins.

In 1991, the organisation's name was updated and changed to its present form. From this modest beginning, the Foundation opened its own custom built Resource Centre in 1994 after a successful Capital Fundraising Appeal, naming the building after Mr Bill Wyllie in appreciation of his significant personal contribution.

In addition to staff offices, the Wyllie Arthritis Centre houses a hydrotherapy pool, gymnasium, seminar and board rooms, café, book shop and leased office space to other tenants. Arthritis & Osteoporosis WA offers a range of support groups and branches which have evolved from the self-help courses conducted over the years. As the population ages, the incidence of arthritis, an umbrella term for over 100 types of disease, is increasing at alarming rates and in 2004 was made the 7th Health Priority by the Federal Government enabling state wide Foundations to benefit by access to government funding.

  • Arts:Performing Arts

Description

Black Swan State Theatre Company is Western Australia’s Flagship Theatre Company and one of Australia’s foremost theatre companies.

Since its inception in 1991, Black Swan has earned both critical and popular acclaim for its world premiere productions and highly distinctive (re)interpretations of international theatre classics – all of which are infused with the unique culture of Western Australia. These have included such landmark productions as Bran Nue Dae, Sistergirl, Tourmaline, Corrugation Road (winner of the prestigious The Age Critics’ Award), The Merry-Go-Round in the Sea, Cloudstreet (Perth, Sydney, London and Dublin seasons) The Odyssey and The Sapphires (Perth, Canberra, London and Korea seasons).

Under the leadership of Artistic Director Kate Cherry, Black Swan has also created the Rio Tinto Black Swan Commissions, a new commissioning program investing into WA’s creative future and showcasing Western Australian stories. The Company also runs professional development programs for emerging Western Australian artists and emerging writers.

Black Swan has been a Resident Company in the new State Theatre Centre of Western Australia since its opening in January 2011. In its first year of performing in the State Theatre Centre, Black Swan presented the world premiere of Rising Water, the first piece written by Tim Winton specifically for the stage. In the same year, Black Swan was the first Australian theatre company to broadcast a live stage performance, when Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, directed by Kate Cherry, was broadcast in real time to audiences across regional Western Australia. Since then live broadcasts to regional WA have become an annual event for Black Swan, complementing the Company’s annual regional touring and workshop programs.

Performing in its new home at the State Theatre Centre has resulted in a surge of popularity for Black Swan: In 2011 alone, over 52,000 people attended a Black Swan production at the new theatre, with many more attending a Black Swan performance at national or international venues. In 2013, Black Swan was part of the Fringe World Festival with a smash hit production of the hipster comedy The Motherf**ker with the Hat in the State Theatre Centre’s Studio Underground, followed by an extremely popular Heath Ledger Theatre season of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, which was seen by over 8,500 paying patrons.

Receiving no government funding, Breast Cancer Care WA relies on the generosity of the WA community in order to provide its range of services at no charge.

We are staffed by a team of professional women from various backgrounds, who share a common passion for making a difference in the Western Australian community.

What we do

Every person will have a unique experience with breast cancer and Breast Cancer Care WA aims to provide each person with the support that will best suit them.

Breast Cancer Care WA provides a range of services designed to alleviate some of the stresses that may be faced after diagnosis, during treatment and in the long term. Services are also offered to carers and family, who have their own challenges and needs through the experience.

Breast Cancer Care WA also places a strong emphasis on educating the community to increase awareness and early detection of breast cancer.

Our services

Breast Cancer Care WA supports families from all over the state and places the highest value on each individual by asking “how can we support you?”

If you or someone you know is affected by a diagnosis of breast cancer and needs some support, please contact us.

Our support services include access to specialist breast care nurses, counselling, specific support groups, financial assistance including; travel and accommodation expenses for country people, help with general household bills and gaps in medical expenses, practical assistance including; transport to and from medical appointments and help with basic living needs during treatment like cleaning, peer support or just being a friendly shoulder in times of need

Thanks to the generosity of the Western Australian community, all of our services are free of charge and tailored to meet the needs of each individual.

Indigenous support and education

Breast Cancer Care WA was the first of its kind to establish services specific to Indigenous women and their families. Our full time program coordinator conducts free breast cancer information workshops throughout WA and works with health organisations in each region to provide emotional, practical and financial support.

Education and awareness

Early detection leads to more effective treatment and can save lives, which is why Breast Cancer Care WA places a strong emphasis on educating the community about breast cancer.

With one in nine women being diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, educating the community is paramount.

Early detection saves lives, so be breast aware!

Why are we purple?

We chose purple as our corporate colour to set ourselves apart from other breast cancer organisations. So when you’re looking for breast cancer support services – think purple!

How we are funded?

Breast Cancer Care WA receives no recurrent government funding and relies solely on the generosity of the WA community to continue its vital work. Sponsorships and donations are the life source of the assistance we provide to those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and are in need of basic support and care.

Importantly, money raised in WA stays in WA.

You may also know Breast Cancer Care WA by its fundraising campaigns;

Long Table Lunch in April, is not just another charity lunch. Established as a celebration of women, this event importantly embraces the opportunity to honour, remember and celebrate the lives of women who have lost their battle with breast cancer. It is also a chance for those who have survived and thrived to celebrate with their family and friends.

Purple Bra Day in June, raises awareness and funds in a light-hearted manner with men and women wearing purple bras on top of their work clothes for a day and receiving sponsorship from friends, family and colleagues for being brave enough to do so.
