Reform The History of Reformative Measures

Prisons serve four main functions in society. They punish offenders, protect the community from criminals, act as a disincentive to people considering crime and provide prisoners the opportunity to reform before their release back into the community. The exhibition Reform: A History of Reformative Measures at Fremantle Prison explores what strategies were employed at Fremantle Prison to control and change prisoner behaviour. While Fremantle Prison was at times a place of harsh punishment, it also provided prisoners with the opportunity to acquire new skills and reform. The exhibition explores the practice of religion, education, work and training at Fremantle Prison through its 136 years of operational history. A number of original documents, artworks and objects from the Fremantle Prison Collection illustrate this reformative process.

Welcome the Clipper Race crew and twelve 70-foot ocean racing yachts as they arrive at the Fremantle Sailing Club following their 4,754 nautical mile race across the notoriously tough Southern Ocean. Track the progress of the fleet online at clipperroundtheworld.com/raceviewer. Returning to Fremantle for the first time since 2005, the stopover in November will be the first taste of Australia for the twelve Clipper Race teams, who started their epic adventure in Liverpool, UK, on August 20. A highlight of the Clipper Race's visit to Fremantle will be the open boat tours; a chance for the public to step on board one of the stripped out ocean racing yachts and hear first hand what it takes to race in the ultimate ocean adventure. The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race is raced by people like you. More than 700 people from all walks of life and representing 41 different nationalities are taking part in the 40,000 nautical mile, eleven month race around the globe. Among the crew will be local man Trevor Taylor, who is completing the entire circumnavigation on board PSP Logistics.  The Clipper Race yachts will start arriving in Fremantle from November 21 and will be berthed at the beautiful Fremantle Sailing Club until the race to Sydney begins on Saturday 2 December. Race Start will be an occasion not to be missed, and will be a great opportunity to see the yachts as they race close to the shore before heading out, once again, to the open sea.

Insider Art Spring 2017

Insider Art: Spring 2017 showcases the creative achievements of incarcerated prisoners from across Western Australia.  A joint initiative of the Department of Justice and Fremantle Prison, this quarterly exhibition will be on show in the old Print Shop (Fremantle Prison Gallery). These exhibitions are always diverse in style and ideas. Pieces exhibited include those from traditional Aboriginal artists with 50,000 years of culture to draw upon; those created by prisoners engaged in tertiary courses in contemporary art practice; and everything in between.  Participation in the creative process offers prisoners more than simple education and recreation. The production of artworks can be an important component in their rehabilitation as it allows them space for creativity and personal development. This can help prisoners to reframe their identity in positive ways. For many, it becomes a connection to family, culture and country.  Entry to the exhibition is free, and many of the works are available for purchase.

Spinifex Arts Project 20th Anniversary

Japingka Gallery presents Spinifex Artists from the remote Pitjantjatjara lands in WA. Artists Ngalpingka Simms, Kanta Donnegan and Tjaruwa Woods will attend the opening on Friday 10 November.   Twenty years ago the Spinifex People of the Great Victoria Desert began an epic journey of recovery and restoration. Moved off their ancestral lands by missile and nuclear tests of the 1950s, they had determined to relocate to the homelands. They moved back in the 1980s. Then in 1987 Spinifex Arts Project was established to map the connections between the people and their lands. Their Native Title claim was successful and Spinifex lands became the first Native Title granted in WA. The original painted maps linking the lands and birthplaces of the people were gifted to the WA Museum. Spinifex arts is continuing to play a major role in the community, to engender and celebrate the cultural heritage of the community, and to recognise mythological sites on their Country.
