Event description

Description

Archae-aus, a cultural heritage management consultancy based in North Fremantle, have been appointed by City of Fremantle to undertake archaeological investigations for the Kings Square redevelopment project. Kings Square has undergone many changes since it was established in 1833. Archaeological excavations will be undertaken in areas between High Street and Newman Court. Archaeologists will be looking for evidence of the 1840s predecessor to the current St John’s Church, that used to stand in the centre of the Square. The archaeologists expect to unearth the earlier church foundations as well as historical material from the late 1800s. These will shed new light into what life was like in Fremantle during the early nineteenth century.

The Museum of Moving Objects will present this workshop that uses unprovenanced historical material associated in date to the King's Square excavations and re-purpose them into unique mobiles. Participants will use their imagination and construct mobiles using artefact fragments, such as pottery shards and glass fragments, from long ago. Participants will leave the workshop with their own unique mobile constructed of artefact fragments integrated with woven stories of the past hiding deep and secret mysterious pasts
