Brimming with culture ( admin posted on September 21st, 2019 )

Gareth Colliton is ready for the Arts on the Grass event on the Civic Green this summer. Picture: ROB GUNSTONETHE Warrnambool Art Gallery is full of exciting exhibitions this summer and will be a cool retreat to explore when the days get hot.

Invasion, the blockbuster exhibition that invaded Warrnambool in December will be running until January 28.

The remarkable exhibition brings together an army of famous aliens and monsters from sci-fi blockbusters.

Original props and costumes from Star Wars, Alien, Predator, Star Trek, Doctor Who, Mars Attack, X-Files, Planet of the Apes, Andromeda, Stargate Atlantas and Red Dwarf are on display .

Curator of exhibitions and outreach Gareth Colliton has been impressed with crowds attending the Invasion exhibition already.

“It’s going awesome, so far so good,” he said.

“By supporting this exhibition we are encouraging this type of culture in Warrnambool which means these types of exhibitions can keep returning.”

At the gallery on January 12 there will be a public session with Deakin University academic Sean Redmond.

“He will be presenting an old sci-fi movie and then he will hold a discussion on the theme of invasion,” Mr Colliton said.

In the temporary gallery Tower Hill is on display until February 3.

Artists have found inspiration in Tower Hill for generations and the exhibition is inclusive of Von Geurard’s famous view of 1855 and photographs taken in the 1960s and 70s showing a more modern representation of the state game reserves regeneration.

Artefacts add an extra dimension to telling the story of the area and cover the pre-history.

In the Lighthouse Theatre Atrium is an exhibition by regional artist Brett Jarrett.

Portraits from the Sea features marine life that is evident on the south-west coast and includes finely detailed realist works of albatrosses, penguins and more.

The exhibition runs until February 11.

Arts on the Grass is also continuing with a great range of artists and musicians lining up to treat lunchgoers’ eyes and ears on Fridays.

“We have had roughly 150 people attending the Arts on the Grass,” Mr Colliton said.

January 11 will see Tom Pendergast versus Shaun McIntyre with music by Heidi Gass and Sean Murphy, on January 18 Becky Nevin Berger will be competing against Robyn Lake and Michelle’s Velocity will play live and on January 25 the two artists battling are Tracey Head versus Kelly O’Brien with tunes by Darren and Louise.

Times change but we must rememebr to care about others ( admin posted on September 21st, 2019 )

OUR 2012 was a year of underlying change, whose effects will probably will not be felt until beyond 2013.
Nanjing Night Net

The catalyst for change has been driven by the increasingly fast pace of technology and continuing moves by governments to cut expenditure and shift responsibility for services from the government sector to the community and business areas.

Social media’s growth in 2012 has fractured intercommunication as well as expanding it. While more and more people can connect with each other, quicker with seemingly no geographical boundaries, this spread of digital friends and connection with random people has lessened the face-to-face connections we have with our friends and neighbours.

There is no reason why 2013 will be any less hectic in the expansion of digital communication. If anyone doubts the long-term changes in social behaviour emanating form these trends, should observe closely this Christmas the infants and toddlers in your families and discover why they are known as digital natives.

The other catalyst comes from changes in government administration, both local and state in 2012, and likely for Australia federally in 2013. The trend of all governments is to cut costs and therefore services in order to make their financial balance sheet as buoyant as possible. The decades of built-in waste and red tape in government is coming to an end. The long term results of this change in mindset are not known as yet.

Who will be the beneficiary of a stronger govrnment financial position? The real effects of the big 2012 cuts will emerge in late 2013, by which time similar federal government cuts will consolidate the structural change.

Our wish for 2013 should be an awareness by governments, business and here in the Redlands that there are those in the community who need the support of others in order to have a decent life.

We must not lose sight of that and this Christmas is a perfect time to reflect on how we treat others.

Have a happy Christmas and we look forward to being part of your life in 2013.

Respite retreat gives kids their own space ( admin posted on September 21st, 2019 )

Ebony Davey, 8, of Wynnum and Laura Shaw, 12, of Manly, try out the bright and colourful sensory area at The Cubby House, a new children’s-only respite retreat in Birkdale. Photo by Chris McCormackTUCKED away on a shaded property in Birkdale is a new children’s-only respite retreat, called The Cubby House, that was officially opened last week.

Filled with all the things most kids would love, including a floating trampoline on a picturesque lake, a giant slingshot for flying out into the water, an arts and crafts shed, a banana forest, bedrooms that really do resemble cubby houses, an outdoor projector for movies under the stars, and much more, the retreat caters to families of children with disabilities.

Owner and director Alex Shaw, of Manly, said The Cubby House was a sister to the Wynnum respite house for people with cognitive impairment, Tea-cup Cottage, which she has owned for about two years with her husband David, a quadriplegic.

She said the self- funded, not-for-profit facility at Birkdale could accommodate up to five children at a time, depending on their needs, with most children staying two to three days at a time.

“There’s a need for this kind of place,” Alex said.

“We had children coming to Tea-cup Cottage, but we couldn’t have adults and children in the same place at the same time, so we realised something had to be done for the children that they needed their own place.”

Alex said while The Cubby House was set in “a beautiful space”, the retreat wasn’t just “a safe place in a pretty environment”.

“We look at everything here and take a holistic approach, including dietary management,” she said.

“It’s about giving children the right to just be themselves and not feel that they don’t have a place in society.

“We offer them dignity and respect and it’s also about allowing families to have some time out, while knowing their children are safe and well cared for.”

Alex said The Cubby House staff included social workers, psychologists and carers, with all staff holding a minimum of a Certificate III in Disabilities, and having undergone relevant police background checks.

Member for Bowman Andrew Laming, who opened the retreat, called the facility “one of a kind”.

“It’s a world class respite centre for kids, and it offers a chance for the children to heal in a place of complete positivity,” he said.

The Cubby House was the second stage of three respite retreats, with a third The Lemon Tree having opened at Wakerley on Monday.
