In this special keynote address Mack McCarthy will illuminate the desperate (pathologically-human?) quest for empire, and how Fremantle itself came so late as a pawn in an international game. Join us for refreshments after the talk. Presented by: The University of Notre Dame Australia and the City of Fremantle Professor Michael (Mack) McCarthy is a senior archaeologist of the Maritime Museum in Western Australia. A public speaker of note, his research has gained popular attention in recent years partly as a result of his role in the discovery of the wrecks of William Dampier’s Roebuck and L’Uranie, the transport of the lovers Rose and Louis deFreycinet in the Atlantic and the HMAS Sydney, Australia’s most significant naval loss of the Second World War off Shark Bay. In this keynote address for the Fremantle Heritage Festival, Professor McCarthy will chart the progress of empires as they inexorably made their way to Fremantle by the nineteenth century.

A(nother) town like Fremantle? Like Fremantle, Valparaiso, Chile, developed as a Victorian Port City. For many years it serviced the rich mining industry and was the last (or first) port of call for ships rounding Cape Horn but the construction of the Panama Canals and changing technology saw Valparaiso decline and be taken over by artists and the like. Recently, the port city has experienced revitalization and received a world heritage listing. Anne Brake, President of the Fremantle History Society, recently visited Valparaiso and was interested in the similarities in the development and changing fortunes of these two port cities – Fremantle and Valparaiso. Anne will apply her 20 years of experience working in and around the heritage industry to explore some of the issues associated with conserving and interpreting the heritage of these places, the world heritage aspirations of both and the opportunities to be embraced.

World Heritage In Danger

More than 'a mere drinking shop'? A story of the Fremantle Workers Social and Leisure Club 1914-2014 The Fremantle Workers Social and Leisure Club, founded in 1914, was based on the ideals of Billy Clare who declared that 'our club never has been, and never will be, a mere drinking shop. It was founded upon high ideals...' What were these ideals and how has the Club reflected these over the last 100 years? Notre Dame historian, Dr Jane Davis, is writing a history of the Club and has these answers. Come along and hear about how the Club, through its varied activities, has lived up to Clare's ideals and learn about a few of the scandals that occurred along the way.

t Faith of Fremantle: Politics since 1945 Dr Martin Drum, The University of Notre Dame Australia The faiths of Fremantle have changed significantly since 1945, informing many of the moral, social and political choices that its people make every day. And yet the influence of faith is often a forgotten element of politics. In this session Notre Dame’s expert on government and politics, Martin Drum, will show how faith and religion in the Fremantle community has shaped the choices of and by its members of parliament. Such an approach should deepen our understanding of Fremantle’s political culture and the sorts of issues which play out in the City’s public life.

Walking t West End Associate Professor Deborah Gare and Dr Shane Burke, The University of Notre Dame Australia The story of Fremantle begins in two places: in this country called Walyalup, which was home to the Wadjuk Noongar people; and in London, where the British imagined a new frontier of their empire on the isolated coast of New Holland. These two worlds collided in 1829 when Stirling's first British migrants arrived at the place he called Fremantle. In the years which followed, the town's history was filled with rich stories of war and peace, love and loss, and boom and bust. Join some of Notre Dame's leading historical scholars as they walk the streets of the West End, bringing to life the extraordinary moments, stories and places which filled our town from 1829 to 1900. Please be aware that this tour will involve the climbing of stairs and the crossing of public streets.

Notre Dame Campus Tours Our campus tours are back! Witness first hand some of Notre Dame's award-winning transformations in Fremantle's West End. Free tours of this unique campus will be run most days during the Heritage Festival. Join us for a wonderful opportunity to explore the town's leading heritage buildings and to hear the story of the founding of the University.

With Fremantle's strong links to Labour history, one of WA's foremost choirs, Working Voices, have chosen to celebrate their 25th Anniversary in Fremantle. More than a choir performance, this sparkling event will blend stories, songs, visuals and actions to celebrate the power of song to enrich and inspire us. Come and join us and our choir directors Bernard and Eleanor Carney, as we showcase our passions for songs of working life, social justice, reconciliation and the environment. For further information, visit www.workingvoiceschoir.org.au or www.facebook.com/ workingvoices.choir.

Headlining at the Closing Party are THE DOMNICKS!: The DomNicks combine Garage Rock/Power Pop legend Dom Mariani (The Stems, DM3, Someloves), with guitarist Nick Shepherd of English punk legends The Clash. Formed in 2007 the band was a meeting of musical minds for Dom and Nick who have since teamed up with Howard Shawcross on bass and Marz Frisina on drums. This hang loose combo plays a mix of Dom and Nick originals with a nice spread of 60's and 70's garage soul classics. One part Memphis stew, one part Stones and Faces inspired and one part Aussie garage guitar rock this band of seasoned players punches well above its collective musical weight.

t Trial of C.Y. O'Connor C.Y. O'Connor has become a legendary figure in Fremantle, revered for creating Fremantle Harbour in 1897. In March 1902, exhausted by over-work, libellous criticism and lack of parliamentary support, O'Connor rode along the sands of South Beach and took his life. This play imagines a different ending—one played out in the courtroom—whereby C.Y. O'Connor is placed on trial to front the accusations levelled against him during his life and beyond it.
