REmida WA Introduces Membership Renewal Incentives

Are you one of our loyal members who regularly renews and maintains continuity of their memberships? REmida wants to reward you!

Currently there is no loyalty incentive in our fee structure for members who renew regularly. As a consequence we experience high levels of membership turnover, with associated higher administration and processing costs. We intend to address that by way of the following:

• Effective on and from 1st December 2014, a renewal incentive of an additional month’s membership will apply to all membership renewals, provided the renewal maintains continuity of membership.

• Effective from 1st January 2015, we will be introducing a joining fee of $15, payable with any application for a new membership, or where a renewal is not continuous.

So if you want to join REmida or revive a lapsed membership, be quick, because the new fee will apply from 1st January next year.

Saturday 8 November – A Big Day for REmida WA

Two important events took place at REmida on Saturday 8 November.

The special general meeting held for the purpose of obtaining member approval to begin the modernisation of our constitution saw overwhelming support for the proposal to amend Section 8. As a consequence, your committee is now entrusted with the determination of membership subscription rates.

Later in the afternoon, our REboot! Members Exhibition opened in style in the REmida WA Art Space. We have an exciting and eclectic array of art, made mostly with our very own clean industrial discards.

REboot! is a celebration of creative reuse and has been brought about through the efforts of Volunteers Coordinator Josie McGushin, our volunteer team and the contributing artists whose work is showcased. Please drop in for a look if you can. The exhibition continues until 6 December.

Here’s a very quick look at the REboot! opening:

INVITATION: REmida AIR Exhibition by Claudia Cristiani

“Connections”

by  Claudia Cristiani

exhibition promo photo

On the 25th of October, Claudia Cristiani, hailing from Argentina & featuring as REmida’s second International Artist in Residence, will be exhibiting in REmida’s art space in West Perth.

Claudia has created an installation for people to walk through, to look at, and to feel emotion towards. To see people connect through intuitive care & compassion is an experience that she finds moving & provided the inspiration for this work.

Please join us for Claudia’s opening of the exhibition on Saturday 25th from 1-4pm

25th October- 1st Nov
At REmida, 1 Prospect Place, West Perth.

The artist says of the theme of the installation:

“… It’s the ability  of some people to guess and give others what they need without them having even expressed it.  That ability, to anticipate and relieve the needs of others, is something magical.”


“To touch somebody’s soul  with my hand… I feel really moved when  something like that happens in my life  or I can see it around me.”

A little look inside REmida’s current exhibition!

Josie, REmida’s Artist-in-Residence for August/ September, asked people the question “Where was your favourite place to play as a child?” in an online survey (www.tellmeproject.me) & 290 people shared their treasured memories.

92% of people’s favoured play places were outside

96% were unsupervised by an adult

The responses were recreated in an immersive installation at the REmida Art Space, “Where the WIld Things Were”exhibiting until the 12th October.

Take a walk through this enchanting landscape, filled with memories that will take you back to your own playful childhood…
