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 very substantial funding.

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

Enrolments for Term 3 commence on Wednesday 20 July (8.30am in person, 9am online) and are ongoing throughout the term, spaces permitting. The requirement for proof of vaccination and mandatory sign-in have been lifted at Glyde-In for the present. However, we do encourage everyone to keep their vaccinations up to date, lodge them with the office (if not already done) and to wear a mask where appropriate or if preferred.

Shani is a teacher, facilitator, urban farmer and community activist from Ecoburbia in Beaconsfield. She will share the changes she has made in her life to become more sustainable - both technological (water and power systems, solar passive house design. . . ) and behavioural (alternative cooperative living, compost systems, urban food production, goat herder. . . ). But, most importantly, she will share the ways she has worked in her geographic community to build resilience. You will also have time to reflect on the changes you have made to become more sustainable, what else you could do and how to support yourself when it all feels a bit much.

This presentation on Pellegrino Artusi's first national Italian cookbook will offer the opportunity to fully appreciate the cultural richness of Italian cuisine and its regional variety. By exploring Artusi's work of unification on a culinary level, we'll better understand the social aspect of food and its centrality in human relationships. As Greek philosopher and historian Plutarch wrote in the first century AD, 'We don't invite one another simply to eat and drink, but to eat and drink together'. Once again, as part of this talk you will enjoy traditional regional food prepared by the chefs at Parlapa, according to Artusi's original recipes.
