Silent Witnesses: An exhibition of sculptures by Martin Rowney

The artworks in this exhibition reflect upon the dichotomy between the profound nature of the research undertaken at the John Curtin School, and the mundane nature of everyday objects that were silent witnesses to these considerable events. Rowney has reimagined these objects within his artworks to tell the stories of their observations.

Fear, fearlessness and environmental activism: The Lock the Gate Alliance

Neil Gunningham, Annie Kia, Hedda Ransan-Cooper
While the political right may harness fear to resist change, fear (and fearlessness) may play very different roles for environmental activists. The Lock the Gate alliance and its siblings have brought together a diverse group of farmers and other landholders, environmental activists and local communities in a remarkably effective grassroots movement to oppose the expansion of coal mining and coal seam gas exploration. Its activities have generated powerful emotions, perhaps most strikingly in the case of the Bentley Blockade, when protesters were preparing for the arrival of 850 riot police.

Peter Warr, Emeritus Professor, Arndt-Corden Department of Economics, Crawford School.
