David Wade, Newman Skate Park. The 2007 Skate Park regeneration involved community and youth consultation to create a green space for physical activity, social interaction and daytime/nighttime use.

This combination has offered a palette of activities including photography, local painting and fibre art, and has engaged the community in diverse issues such as the 1967 Aboriginal referendum, rock music documentary, Indigenous art/design practice and childhood literacy.

FORM’s official tenure in Newman ended in 2007. Newman: A Creative Resource was a three year program that developed the creative industries of Newman and the Pilbara, through creative skills-based workshops and community capacity and confidence building activities. Projects were designed to benefit the Newman and surrounding Pilbara communities beyond FORM’s involvement by setting precedents for future ventures and creating platforms for greater community engagement, social and creative recreation.
