REmida is Perth’s creative reuse centre offering a myriad of materials for creative and educational projects.
Named for the mythical King Midas, whose touch turned everything to gold, REmida reveals that which is precious and valuable in the waste from local industry. Housed in an ex-library, the centre presents a collection of resources for communication in the many languages of learning. A fly-wire forest meets with a mathematical carpet of book tiles edged by a wall of string, in a world of endless possibility and imagination.
REmida offers annual memberships to a diverse range of organisations, families and individuals. REmida members gain access to not only the materials, but to the dynamic network developing locally and internationally. REmida is a cultural centre for exchange and dialogue surrounding the issues of education and sustainability. Inviting you to rethink waste, REmida links industry, education and the arts in powerful and engaging collaboration.
REmida originates in the educational philosophies of Reggio Emilia, an area of Italy at the forefront of the educational revolution. REmida materials expand the repertoire of learning tools available, whilst encouraging creative problem-solving processes. REmida presents inspiring and innovative workshops for children and passionate professional development opportunities for educators, parents and companies.
REmida welcomes guests to come and discover the beauty, which sustains itself in all things.
