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. 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.

Ned Kelly was Australias most wanted bushranger. Sidney Nolan was Australias first internationally acclaimed artist. Both were men with complex private lives, and both had intense conflicts that drove the actions shaping their public persona. In both cases, opinion is still divided on their legacy and Australian identity. Karen McKay is a WA Art Gallery guide and will show that something more than an artist-subject link can be discerned both in the differences between the men and in the almost-magnetic attraction drawing them together.

WA is a trove of extraordinary phenomena. Journalist Lee Tate has the low-down on diamond-embedded ant-hills, the worlds shortest ferry ride, the strongest wind gust, the hottest temperatures and the whitest beaches. Hell describe how the army once took on emus (the emus won) and why our honey possums arent possums and dont eat honey. This is a roller-coaster of a talk.
