REmida is launching “START for Teachers” in 2014, a professional development program supported by the City of Joondalup & City of Vincent. Due to these council’s generous support, schools within the region are able to participate in the program FREE of charge.
“START for Teachers” assists teachers in the transition from conventional catalogue materials to the use of reuse /recycled materials in the classroom. The program enables teachers to confidently use these open-ended materials within an educational setting and shows how this can be integrated across the curriculum.
Registrations are limited to 8 schools City of Joondalup and 3 schools City of Vincent and the program will run during Term One & Two of 2014.
We hope you take advantage of this unique opportunity to help make your school a more sustainable & innovative place of learning.

Metamorph-This!” REmida Day 2013 (presented by Act Belong Commit & REmida WA): a vibrant day of transformative fun & spontaneous sculpture. Held annually by the international REmida Network, REmida Days around the world celebrate the infinite possibilities of creative reuse. All “Metamorph-This!” activites used the discards & scraps of local industry as materials, collected for reuse by REmida WA.
Held in Forrest Place, Perth. Saturday 4th of May 2013.
The REmida Art Space transformed into a banquet room last Thursday 11th July, as Kieran Stewart hosted a dinner for participants of his VEXILOIDS project.
Kieran interviewed 7 individuals that had connections with the local area (including REmida!). He then created banner style flags, entitled ‘Vexiloids’, inspired by and capturing the stories he had heard. The banners were made with entirely REmida materials and read from bottom to top, telling the story of the lives of the people they represented.
We had great fun guessing which Vexiloid represented who, and congratulations to Max and Linda who guessed theirs first try!
It was a beautiful project to witness and congratulations to Kieran for a very successful REmida residency.
Please visit Kieran’s project blog at https://vexilloidremida.wordpress.com/ to learn more about the project.
Kieran has arrived! He has been busy setting up his studio space and has already commenced initial construction on his giant Vexilloids. Kieran’s interviews with people inolved with REmida and the City of Vincent will begin tomorrow, which will be the inspirations for and the subjects of his Vexilloid pieces.
Come in to REmida to visit Kieran and learn more about his fascinating project, he’s a most friendly & hospitable chap! Or follow it as it happens on his project blog.
