Welcome to the incredible Red Earth Arts Precinct; a facility that will be a permanent home for arts and culture, right here in the heart of our City. This precinct is a game-changer for our region, providing a 450+ seat theatre, rooftop cinema, outdoor amphitheatre and state-of-the-art library space. Innovative and unique, the Red Earth Arts Precinct will be a focal point for our community, a place to share our creativity and showcase the City to a wider audience.
Architecturally this building is one of a kind, reflecting the Karratha hills that overlook it – a statement piece as you enter Karratha. Technologically the precinct exceeds expectations, providing the same systems and equipment you would find in a much larger metropolitan area.
Once again I would like to extend my sincere thanks to our funding partners on behalf of the City of Karratha. Construction of this facility would not have been possible without the support of the Australian Government through the National Stronger Regions Fund, the State Government through the Royalties for Regions program administered by the Pilbara Development Commission, the Woodside-operated North West Shelf Project, Rio Tinto and Lotterywest.
The Red Earth Arts Precinct is a destination and I am very pleased to invite you to visit us and to explore our website.
Mayor, City of Karratha
SMALL VOICES LOUDER
Sometimes children’s voices are exactly what the world needs to hear.
Small Voices Louder is a child-only space for playing and pondering. It’s a magical world of tents and teepees where kids lie under clouds, talk to an alien, discover a dinosaur egg and step into a portal to the future. It’s a space for dreaming, wondering and talking about the bigger things in life.
Small Voices Louder is a show in two parts. The first part is an interactive installation that asks children social, political and philosophical questions. The second takes these recorded answers and delivers them to adult ears. We believe that sometimes, children are exactly what the world needs to hear.
Ideal for children ages 7-12.
YO DIDDLE DIDDLE
Perfect for 4-8 year olds.
Yo Diddle Diddle is the hilarious rhyme and rhythm of Tony Wilson’s The Cow Tripped Over The Moon transformed into a hip-hop infused adventure story of one cow and her desire to jump over the moon.
Cat tells us the story of Cow & her dream to jump the moon, and the night the famous nursery rhyme was created. Cow tries and tries again, encouraged by the wise and resourceful Cat, and musical and inventive Houston. Her friends band together to help Cow to keep trying while Cow discovers what it takes to achieve your dreams.
