Fremantle’s Hidden Treasures Winter Music Series returns this July with a mix of ripe new bands, well-seasoned cult heroes, perfectly-cured venues and… a musical tram. For the past six years the City of Fremantle has presented Hidden Treasures, which has given WA music fans a rare peak inside the tucked away, incredibly evocative old venues that dot Fremantle’s West End such as the Buffalo and Navy Clubs. Now a staple of the local music calendar, ‘Treasures has developed a reputation as a taste-making showcase of WA’s hottest young acts while also celebrating specially-reformed cult bands from the state’s rich musical past. It’s the unusual audience this creates – crusty rock dogs rubbing shoulders with 19 year-old hipsters – that makes Hidden Treasures such an unpredictable delight. In 2017 Hidden Treasures will also welcome its first ever roving, ever-changing, venue – the Fremantle Tram. The local tourist shuttle will regularly pick up punters before stopping at picturesque locations such as the North Mole Lighthouse for stripped-back acoustic concerts by artists including Lucy Peach, Timothy Nelson and Steve Parkin. Tickets to Hidden Treasures are $20 on the night only. Tickets gain you entry to all venues: The Navy Club, Buffalo Club, Packenham St Art Space, The Orient and National Hotel. Hidden Treasures Winter Music Series is a City of Fremantle festival
The City of Fremantle is collaborating with Urban Indigenous to present a commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the 1967 Referendum. The commemoration is centered in sharing stories of individual connections to the referendum presented in live personal exchanges. These exchanges will take place in and around Fremantle and culminate in a larger family friendly event. Sharing stories enables connections between individuals and their communities to be made. Through each personal story the importance of the ‘YES’ vote in 1967 will be shared, an intimate reflection about what this historic result means not only for the individuals sharing their story, but for all Australians. Through the program of events the commemoration aims to engage in new audiences with indigenous stories in a way that is personal and unexpected. A series of pop up performances will take place in various locations across the city announced online each day. The ‘surprise’ performance/sharing widens engagement and offers new ways to people to engage with each other. On Saturday the 27 May all the storytellers will gather and share their stories in a live performance at the iconic Fremantle location of Clancy’s. This family friendly event will be hosted by Urban Indigenous and encourage sharing through conversation and food and celebrate the power of people coming together. In 1967 the Australian people spoke loudly through their votes to make positive change together, it was the biggest ‘YES’ vote in history on any Commonwealth referendum to date. Event locations: Monday 22 May to Friday 26 May: pop up locations around Fremantle (TBA) Saturday 27 May: 12 pm to 3 pm, Clancy’s Fish Pub, Fremantle … Urban Indigenous Urban Indigenous celebrates Aboriginal Australia, respects Aboriginal culture and loves Aboriginal Australians.

Insider Art: Autumn 2017 showcases the creative achievements of incarcerated prisoners from across Western Australia. A joint initiative of the Department of Corrective Services 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.
