Fremantle Network returns on Monday 27 March

The Fremantle Network returns on Monday 27 March featuring:

Adam Jorlen from enkel with an update on plans for the Naval Store and Adin Lang – Friends of Hollis Park and Landcare Australia.

enkel is a collective with a mission to create a new generation of change-makers in WA.

They do this through hosting events & workshops, supporting early-stage social enterprises, running open innovation labs, and much more.

Their plans are well underway to convert the Naval Store at the base of Cantonment Hill into a school for changemakers, including coworking, makerspaces, learning hubs, a climbing wall and café.

Adin Lang is working to establish the Fremantle Landcare Group; a collective of local “friends of” groups to pool resources, funding and share tools and expertise. He hopes to bring together the friends of Boo Park, Clontarf Hill, Cantonment Hill and others locals who love our parks and greenspaces to enable new projects and greater impact through collaboration.

Join us for the discussion from 6pm, Monday 27 March, upstairs at the National Hotel, Fremantle.

 

Freo’s Ride-In Cinema for Bike Week

To go out with a fun sweat Bike Week in Fremantle will wrap up on Saturday with the Ride-In Cinema. It will bring back all the nostalgic memories of visiting the Drive-in but with a Fremantle twist.

Ride in to Market Street Piazza, park your bike and get dinner from one your favourite spots before settling in to view a series of short films that are related to cycling in some way, shape or form. Don’t get too comfy though, this cinema needs some pedal power to operate.

San Churro’s will be there handing out some free samples and discount vouchers to keep the energy levels up.

Grab a group of friends, family or maybe your neighbours and get pedalling at The Ride-In Cinema to celebrate Bike Week and Neighbourhood Day.

26th of March 2017 at 6:00pm until 8:15pm

One at the Fremantle Library and  another at Bathers Beach House.

Fremantle Foundation Impact100 Launch Night for 2017

The details are 6.00pm on Thursday 30th March 2017 at Clancy’s Fish Pub, Fremantle

Here the Fremantle Foundation is having its Impact100 Fremantle Launch Night 2017

It is a great opportunity learn more about the Impact100 Fremantle experience and hear an inspiring update from their 2016 major grant recipient Night Hoops..

For those of you that haven’t heard of Impact100 Fremantle it is a great way to come together and make a positive difference in our local community. The strategy includes making one primary grant of $100,000 each year – a game changing grant – empowering a local charity to dream bigger. Donors at an annual Grant Awards Dinner choose the grant recipient collectively.

MANY changes but staying 6160

MANY 6160  is Australia’s largest temporary space activation project (possible the largest anywhere in the world but as they say it is a bit hard to know how to measure this) .

Since Spacemarket opened it in October 2013, the former department store has become a fabulous cutting edge retail space with producers above and a gallery below.

But all good things must … well … change and evolve and MANY 6160 V1.0 is closing and moving on so the Kings Square project can get underway.

In fact this weekend (18/19) is their last in the old Myer building (check out the leaving event below) and I think you’ll agree that the project has been a huge success for Fremantle and exceeded expectations in terms of longevity and quality. The City of Fremantle has been working closely with the MANY team since the project launched and lately on their transition plan.

So the exciting news is that MANY 6160 will transition to MANY 2.0 in three other under-utilised buildings in Fremantle:

Big parts of the retail floor will be relocating to 52 Adelaide St (old-Spotlight). It will be great to see that area get some much needed reactivation.

The production floor will largely go into 45 Henderson St (the Old Police Station) and 135 Stirling Hwy (Old Matilda Bay Brewery).

I am extremely pleased to see this amazing initiative continue and evolve. MANY has been a key part of keeping Fremantle unique and creative.

The leaving party is next Friday the 24th. All welcome.
