Repurposed with purpose
The Life and Times of REmida Perth Inc.
REmida has grown from humble beginnings to a visionary leader in sustainable reuse.
In 2004, the teachers and parents of Bold Park Community School collected a 1000 containers of waste materials. These materials became a feature in the artistic installation 'Materials in Dialogue' which was set-up in Forrest Place, in the heart of Perth. This installation inspired the community to rethink waste and discover the endless possibilities of reusable materials.
By 2005 the REmida centre opened at the old Cairne TAFE campus and exhibited the 'Sculptures of Identity'. This body of work highlighted the many expressions of identity from children in the local community. From here REmida began to grow and evolve, building relationships with members, volunteers and suppliers.
In 2008 REmida WA was incorporated and relocated to a larger premise allowing the centre to attract even more enthusiastic members! And in 2020, REmida took the very important step of registering as a charitable organisation dedicated to creating sustainable communities where children can flourish in education rich environments.
Perth's has a rapidly growing community who want to embrace sustainable practises, watch this space as REmida is set to lead the way in creative reuse!
On going collaborations
Hello everyone, I am Daniela Giacopelli, I was born and raised in a little village in the mountains near Reggio Emilia-Italy.
I met REmida Perth at the beginning of 2021 and I am currently cooperating with the team of work on two different creative projects.
I graduated at the Modena and Reggio Emilia university in science and technologies and I started to work in 2009 in the Atelier From Wave to Wave.
The Atelier was created form the cooperation between the National Park of Appennino Tosco Emiliano, Reggio Children and the local municipality.
Located inside an hydroelectric power station in the middle of beautiful forests, the Atelier offered to people from 0 to 99 years old experiences of research about water and energy; art, science, pedagogy were the protagonist to support each visitor in building process of learning constantly nourish creative process and using unique competences and qualities.
Nowadays I am creating a project where the pedagogy, the art and the nature will be strictly connected in a zero waste farm in the middle of the Tosco Emiliano Appennins.
