Akirash, the Shire of East Pilbara's 2016 Art at the Heart artist in residence, has treated local residents to more than a glimpse into his creative practice by conducting fascinating workshops in Marble Bar, Nullagine and Newman.


Members of the Newman community gathered at Radio Hill over the weekend to participate in the Shire of East Pilbara’s Great Northern Clean Up, the northern version of the annual Clean Up Australia Day, which is the largest community-based environmental event in Australia. 


Fifteen Newman Residents became Australian Citizens today celebrating with more than 500 other people from 63 countries who took the Oath of Citizenship this week as part of Australian Citizenship Day ceremonies in Western Australia.
