Curtin graduate Erin Coates’ (BA Arts Hons, 2002) stunning ceiling-to-floor waterfall installation, ‘Never The Same River Twice’ is captivating audiences at the 23rd Biennale of Sydney.
 
The waterfall installation of oyster shells was inspired by her childhood in Albany, free-diving expeditions in the Derbarl Yerrigan (Swan River) and the impact of colonisation on the river.
 
“This work is quite personal to me. It’s about the interconnection of environmental and human health, and the many small acts of healing that I engaged in while creating this work,” Erin said.
 
In her tiny studio Erin boiled and scrubbed over 10,000 oyster shells discarded by local restaurants before intricately drilling and stitching each onto an eight-metre-long mesh backing.
 
Her advice for any graduates wanting to become full-time professional artists is to find your people and make stuff happen.
 
“Build a community around you by being generous, supportive and engaged in what other artists are doing.”

For Curtin nursing graduate Giselle Howard, working on WA’s frontline has yielded a wealth of emotions and experiences. 👩🏽‍⚕️🦠
 
As our healthcare systems become more challenging, particularly with #COVID19 pressures, Giselle is mentoring final year nursing students to ensure a smooth transition from the classroom to workplace.
 
The Curtin Nursing and Midwifery Mentoring Program uses online app @mentorloop to help connect practicing graduates and final year students through a series of meetings, online interactions and resources.
 
“An initiative like Mentorloop is so important, we need to look after the next generation and prevent burn out in the workplace. Hopefully it will bring benefits such as increased resilience, coping strategies and a safer workplace psychologically and professionally,’’ Giselle said.

We love to see the WA School of Mines Alumni grow each year! 👏🎓
 
Last week we recently welcomed an exceptional batch of young graduates at its annual Kalgoorlie Graduates Dinner.
 
The new graduates shared this milestone with six 50-year graduates who celebrated their anniversary and shared their words of invaluable wisdom.
 
The biggest takeaway from the night was Blackstone Minerals Limited MD Scott Williamson keynote speech that encouraged the graduates to be excited about their futures but ready to meet the challenges of the ever-evolving industry.
 
We can’t wait to see what these talented bunch of graduates do next! 💫

Meet Curtin graduate @tarajeisman (BA Psychology (Hons) 2022) Founder of the latest body positive movement sweeping the nation, Sea Gals. 🌊
 
Earlier this year, the 23-year-old shared a video of herself on @tiktok enjoying a sunrise swim at Mullaloo Beach, that went viral, with thousands of like-minded girls expressing their interest.
 
Now more than 125 girls, from early teens to grandmothers, are joining her for weekly morning swims, where girls are encouraged to connect with their surrounds and focus on the sounds and smells of the sea.
 
“I have women from all walks of life tell me about how Sea Gals gave them motivation, following a low point in their mental wellbeing.
 
“And to be honest Sea Gals was the turning point I needed to accept my body,” Tara said.
