Description

<p> REmida WA is Perth’s Creative Reuse Centre, a not-for-profit community project that works closely with education to provide a unique, creative and responsible solution to industry waste. Through its workshop and membership programs, REmida aims to inspire the curiousity and creativity of adults & children alike with the infinite possibilities of creative reuse and thus encourage a more thoughtful relationship with waste.</p> <p> <br /> REmida materials consist of the discards, offcuts, remnants and refuse of local industry, materials that would have otherwise ended up in landfill. REmida, meaning ‘King Midas’ in Italian, gives new meaning to these materials and highlights the value & beauty imbedded within them, working effectively to change the way that they are viewed – not as rubbish but as valuable, interesting & beautiful.</p> <p> <br /> The materials collected by REmida are not sold, instead once a school, daycare, artist or family signs up as a member they are given unlimited access to the materials and are able to collect as often they need to, for free. The membership program is designed to encourage regular usage of REmida materials, providing a sustainable environmental solution to a school’s ongoing and often financially exhausting material needs.</p> <p> Workshops at REmida explore how useful and inspirational the materials are, and the endless possibilities they have for reuse through exploration, play and construction. School Workshops are aimed at predominantly primary school aged children with a range of activities that the teacher can choose from. Workshops are also available in festival settings and the REmida Play Experience is an interesting addition to any festival’s family area. REmida also holds its own events, with its annual REmida Day celebration in May, festivities during National Recycling Week in November and an Artist-In-Residence program running throughout the year.</p> <p> <br /> Join REmida as a member, donate your business’ waste materials or help the project by volunteering your time & skills. Please see www.remidawa.com for more details. REmida WA, supporting the development and practice of new sustainable art forms in Western Aus-tralia.</p>

The Kimberley- Like Nowhere Else

A growing community working to protect the Kimberley, one of the last great unspoilt landscapes on Earth.

Description

The Kimberley is a region of spectacular natural beauty.  Its unique landscapes and wildlife are like nowhere else on earth.  The Kimberley coast is one of the last remaining unspoilt coastlines, and scientific studies have shown it remains one of the most pristine marine areas on Earth.

It is also a region rich in cultural heritage, with Traditional Owners continuing their ancient culture that is tens of thousands of years old.  In the landscape, this long history is evident through the presence of artifacts such as rock art galleries, shell middens and fish traps.

Stretching across an area nearly twice the size of Victoria, the Kimberley is comparable to the Great Barrier Reef, or the Amazon Rainforest, as a large intact area of outstanding natural value. 

Such an incredible region of natural wonder deserves world class conservation. We are working as an alliance to ensure the Kimberley gets the high level of protection it deserves.
