Who We Are

Glyde-In Community Learning Centre, 42 Glyde Street, East Fremantle, offers courses, talks and activities that we hope will enrich your enjoyment and knowledge, and foster a healthy community life.

We aim to be a source of learning that doesn't cost the earth, that doesn't need prior knowledge or qualifications, and doesn't ask for a huge commitment of your time. Our courses are non-competitive and informal, including art and craft classes, language classes and computer classes. Tutors are from all walks of life, and we welcome more! Glyde-In is committed to the inclusion and recognition of all members. The premises are wheelchair accessible. The Centre is run by a volunteer Management Committee, and four part-time staff members. We generate much of our funding through membership and course fees, and are also supported greatly by the Town of East Fremantle, who provides our building and its maintenance, and substantial funding.

Glyde-In gratefully acknowledges the support of staff and councillors of East Fremantle Council.

Enrolments for Term 2, 2023 open on Wednesday 26 April - book in person from 8.30am, online from 9am and continue throughout the term, spaces permitting.

Long time secretary of the Musicians Union in WA, Peter is sometimes asked how a working class boy from East Victoria Park came to be a Marxist. What led him down the path of left-wing politics and ultimately a Marxist world view? In this talk Peter seeks to answer that question and also why this perspective still holds true for him. His talk will be based on his own experience and personal reflection, rather than an academic approach to political ideology and Marxism.

Russia''s aggression against Ukraine, launched on 24 February 2022, has accelerated several debates of global political and military importance. These include the renewed role of conventional military power in contemporary and future conflicts, the nature of near future warfare, and the transformation of the world order triggered by the crisis of the established international rules based order. As the prolonged Russia-West rivalry has now transformed into a quasi-open war over Ukraine, understanding adversarial failures and successes is essential to avoid the risk of making a strategic error of judgment in times of conflict. In this series Alexey will provide an overview of the war in Ukraine, and the current state of play on the battlefield and beyond. He will consider possible future courses of action by major actors involved in this conflict, including Vladimir Putins political future, and draw some preliminary conclusions on what key take-away lessons can be learned from the unfolding tragedy in Eastern Europe.

Meet there. Find your art mojo and get your creative vibe on - it's time to hit the streets in search of Fremantle's vibrant, urban art scene. Fremantle is renowned for its street art, with the latest count listing up to 40 artists who use the urban realm as their backdrop. Splashed with spectacular colours, the streets, back alleys and historical buildings have become the canvas for both local and international artists. We'll uncover some of the most iconic pieces: from stencils to paste-ups, graffiti to murals, legal and illegal pieces plus large-scale commissions. Fremantle has it all. We begin our tour in the West End, wander uptown, stopping for coffee at the Grumpy Sailor (at own expense), then saunter down to the Cappuccino Strip and finish up at the Bistrot Cafe on Marine Terrace. Tucked beneath lush, green trees, it's the perfect place to enjoy a delicious lunch (at own expense) while we relax and reflect on Fremante's funky, urban street art. Meet at 10.15am for 10.30am start at WA Shipwreck Museum, corner of Marine Terrace and Cliff Street, Fremantle.

Join Christian for an interactive presentation exploring what we can learn from the way we sign our name. What does it mean if you underline your name or sign your name in full? Do you put a dot at the end, do you only use your initials, is your signature illegible? And what can these things tell us about our personality or perhaps our needs?
