Creative Health Roadshow Tours the Territory

Thu, 05/03/2018 - 08:53

The Northern Territory Creative Health Leadership Group is inviting people to attend one of three forums on in the Territory during May. There will be three forums altogether with first event in Darwin on Friday 11 May at Charles Darwin University, followed by events in Alice Springs and Tennant Creek the following week.

Designed to bring people together who are interested in the role of arts in relation to health and wellbeing, the forums are free to attend and expect to attract people working health, community development along with artists and therapists also. 

“The idea of arts and creative activities being used for the benefit of health and wellbeing is not a new one”, Maz McGann from the Institute for Creative Health commented. “It is gaining significant momentum however both in Australia and overseas and we are keen to bring people together who are more interested to find out more” she added. 

Each of the forums includes a guest speaker, discussing a particular case study and Maz McGann from the Institute for Creative Health will be there to provide an overview of what is happening nationally and internationally. Attendees will also be invited to discuss their ideas about the role of arts in sustaining and promoting health and ask questions. 

For more information people can contact Maz McGann on 0438 807 973 or to register https://www.eventbrite.com.au/o/institute-for-creative-health-nt-leaders...

Marcus Timber Cooperative Community Meeting

Tue, 04/24/2018 - 21:45

The second community meeting of Marcus Timber Cooperative will be held on Thursday, 26 April 2018, 5:30 PM, at Darwin Community Arts, 1 Travers Street, Coconut Grove. Here are details of the meeting, from the Marcus Timber Cooperative Facebook notice: Most of the heaviest logs felled during Cyclone Marcus are still waiting to be processed. The Marcus Timber Cooperative has been encouraged to present a plan to the City Council. The timber has little economic value for Local or NT Governments in its current state. Right now, many people agree that the timber has great environmental and social value. Our challenge is to articulate a very clear, practical plan quickly AND to mobilise the right skills and resources to stop this useful material from going to waste. 

Here are some questions that we want to answer together at the meeting:

- where can we stockpile whole logs for one season on hard stand?

- could Council and NT Gov contractors transport good timber directly into storage instead of chipping?

- could we raise quick funds for labour to salvage timber? Would this approach mitigate some risk / insurance issues?

- how can we transport timber to and from mills for slabbing and undercover storage?

- what visions do different individuals and groups have for the timber beyond the salvage stage? How can people put the visions into practice?

- are there sufficient resources to sustain this whole process over the next 1-3 years? How exactly?

 

Please consider if there is any work you can do in preparation for this meeting. Spread the word!

Fri, 04/20/2018 - 19:25

The Community Dinner for April 2018 is cancelled. Unfortunately, we still have challenges with relocating to Coconut Grove and exiting from Malak, especially with recent staff changes, and not enough preparations with community partners have been made in time for the dinner scheduled for 30 April. We intend to host the May Community Dinner at our new place at 1 Travers Street, Coconut Grove, as a housewarming and big chat on DCA plans and possibilities for the coming months and years. We apologise for disappointment and inconvenience caused by this cancellation.

Congratulation Bong Ramilo

Australia Council Awards recipients announced for 2018

The Australia Council is pleased to announce this year’s recipients of the prestigious Australia Council awards, which recognise and celebrate the significant contributions of leading artists to the artistic and cultural vibrancy of the nation.  

Nominated by industry peers, the eight recipients of the national awards demonstrate an extraordinary range of outstanding and sustained achievement across music, literature, community arts and cultural development, emerging and experimental arts, visual arts, theatre, and dance. They join an impressive and diverse group of individuals who have received these awards in previous years.

The recipients will be honoured during a special ceremony at Carriageworks, Sydney on Tuesday. Australia Council CEO Tony Grybowski said it was an opportunity to reflect on the important role artists play in capturing the nation’s imagination.

“These national awards are a critical way for the Australia Council to recognise the remarkable achievements of individual Australian artists, as well as highlighting the broader contribution of all our artists to enhancing the lives of Australians. The recipients of the 2018 awards are leaders in their respective fields. They have individually and collectively made highly significant contributions to the development of artistic practice and to challenging existing ways of exploring how we express identity and how we connect with one another. Almost all Australians engage with the arts multiple times on a daily basis. The Arts play a central role in wellbeing, in building more creative and cohesive communities, and are a complex and layered reflection of our nation. With that in mind it is essential that we celebrate and support the rich and diverse artistic talent we are fortunate to have,” he said.

The recipients of Australia Council Awards for 2018:     

Bruce Pascoe (VIC) - Australia Council Award for Lifetime Achievement in Literature 

Liza Lim (NSW) - Australia Council Don Banks Music Award

Pat Brassington (TAS) - Australia Council Visual Arts Award 

Nigel Helyer (NSW) - Australia Council Award for Emerging & Experimental Arts 

Phillip Adams (VIC) - Australia Council Award for Dance 

Liz Jones AO (VIC) - Australia Council Award for Theatre 

Christian (Bong) Ramilo (NT) – Australia Council Ros Bower Award for Community Arts and Cultural Development

On the Move

Tue, 02/20/2018 - 14:44

After 10 years in Malak, Darwin Community Arts is on the move. In line with our strategic plans and vision, we are continuing to distribute and decentralise our work throughout the Darwin Region.

In March 2018, we will relocate the main office and some creative spaces now in Malak to Coconut Grove. We are currently conducting workshops and activities at the Palmerston Library, Durack Community Centre, and we are assessing further opportunities in the rural areas.

DCA moved to Malak following the reinvention of Brown’s Mart Community Arts in 2007 with the intention of being embedded in the communities we work with. The move to Malak proved successful, conducting many community activities involving a broad range of participants and interests.

The 10 years in Malak saw the establishment of the Telecentro, a community Internet Café’, a theatre for local productions and community use, Youth Blast (a program specifically designed for young people at risk), the Mobile Café’, the Community Garden, the Monthly Gatherings, which were the precursors to the Community Dinners and the award winning My Sisters Kitchen and the Malak Markeplace, the Darwin Fridge Festival, the Community Shed, Asia in Darwin, Arts Access Darwin arts workshops, Frontline digital media projects, among others.

In this time we also established a great network of partners and collaborators including the Multicultural Council of the NT, Melaleuca Refugee Centre, Australian Red Cross, Mission Australia, City of Darwin, City of Palmerston, Sanderson Middle School, Manunda Terrace Primary School, Palmerston Senior College, Corrugated Iron Youth Arts, Brown’s Mart Arts, and others.

Our move to Coconut Grove will not mark the end of our commitment in Malak. We are currently negotiating new terms and conditions to retain the Chambers Crescent Theatre as a community space, controlled and managed by community groups, which we intend to be part of.

We are excited about the next chapter of the DCA story. The main office will be located in Travers Street, Coconut Grove. The large space will accommodate the administration, Art Access Darwin, and CemeNTworx programs, some of the arts and crafts groups and a music studio.

We are also in the planning stages of the establishment of a Creative Coworking Space social enterprise. The next step for this project will be a series of community consultations to map out community needs and assets – stay tuned.

All going to plans, we should be in Coconut Grove by 15 March. We will update regularly on our online platforms.

We apologise for any inconveniences this transition period may cause and thank you for your continued support.
