YinjaaBarni Artists

Yinjaa-Barni artists from the Pilbara region of Western Australia tell the traditional stories of their homelands along the Fortescue River. Their paintings tell of the great Marrga or Creation era when the land was formed from the smoke of the Ancestors fires. They recognise and record the transformations of the Land as it goes from parched landscape to green bushland after torrential summer rainstorms. Abundant water forms creeks in the gorges, and the bush blossoms and the wildlife regenerates. The cycle repeats as the land dries out again in the long wait for the next rains. The artists carry the stories of their forefathers and use a variety of styles to represent nature and its cycles of regeneration. The people maintain a long tradition of understanding and working with these transitions.

Mysore Morning Ashtanga

The Mysore - Morning Ashtanga yoga course is a four week course, Monday to Friday starting at 5.30am.  Traditionally Ashtanga yoga is practiced at sunrise, every day, with one day of rest, enabling the student to observe the fluctuation of the mind and body, and work towards finding balance within, and building strength to face the adversities of life. Practicing yoga daily offers the opportunity to explore yoga in its traditional form, access the benefits more deeply and maintain health and wellness. The student learns a set sequence of postures that form a personal practice, the teacher guides the student giving specialised instruction and adjustments. Suitable for all levels, including the complete beginner, no prior experience necessary.

Bearing Witness, and the Artist as Historian: free talk by Prof Deborah Gare

The artist, Hans Holbein, engineered the royal wedding between Henry VIII and Anne of Cleves—and doomed it to failure when, in real life, the princess did not live up to the beauty of her portrait.  In another country, and another century, Eugene Delacroix recorded the uprising of the French people in 1830 in his iconic work ‘Liberty Leading the People’.  Can history be read through works of art? In this fascinating talk Notre Dame’s professor of history, Deborah Gare, will reveal how art bears witness to extraordinary events of our past and how, indeed, painters might sometimes be considered historians.  Due to the popularity of Notre Dame’s festival talks, this year’s weekday program will be available to both morning and evening audiences.

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.

Brewery Tours at Little Creatures

One shared belief when Little Creatures was just a twinkle in our eyes was that breweries over the years have hardly been the most romantic of places. Hidden behind big brick walls and imposing gates, very little was visible to the passing community. It is our ambition to change all that, to become an open and transparent Brewery that welcomes all walks of life to experience the wonder of brewing. Come on down, say hi and explore our little piece of brewing happiness. Not sure what style of beer is for you? Want to learn about all things brewing along with the Little Creatures story? Brewery Tours with one of our resident hop heads include learning about all the great ingredients we use and the brewing process, along with a guided tasting of all of our beers and ciders. Tours run daily at 12, 1, 2 and 3pm.  To join, head on into the Brewhouse (located directly inside our brewery) before we start and sign up. Must be 18yo to join a brewery tour. We also offer free bike hire. Grab a bike for the day and explore our community. The Brewhouse is also the place to grab some crafty gear and pick up a six-pack of your favourite beer. There's a great outdoor area and since we welcome all walks of life, feel free to bring your pooch down too.
