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.

Our Western culture is based on the assumption that consciousness is derived from matter, that is, the brain. Most of us accept this idea without question, despite a lack of scientific evidence. This in turn has produced the materialistic paradigm that informs most aspects of our lives, and is at the core of much human suffering and degradation of our environment. These meetings are an invitation to explore a different possibility. We will attempt to unravel the assumptions behind this materialistic belief, and discover how a different paradigm could contribute to a more fulfilling and peaceful life.

Meet there. A comedy by Neil Simon. Hilarity abounds in this portrait of three couples successively occupying a suite at the Plaza. A suburban couple take the suite while their house is being painted and it turns out to be the one in which they honeymooned 23 (or was it 24?) years before and was yesterday the anniversary, or is it today? This wry tale of marriage in tatters is followed by the exploits of a Hollywood producer who, after three marriages, is looking for fresh fields. He calls a childhood sweetheart, now a suburban housewife, for a little sexual diversion. Over the years she has idolized him from afar and is now more than the match he bargained for. The last couple is a mother and father fighting about the best way to get their daughter out of the bathroom and down to the ballroom where guests await her or as Mother yells, "I want you to come out of that bathroom and get married!" Book by 10 February. Venue: Melville Theatre, cnr Stock Road & Canning Hwy, Palmyra.
