    DYSTOPIA: ZINE LAUNCH

    May 30th 2024, 11:30am - 12:30am

    A brand-new youth program in partnership with Centralian Senior College and Alice Springs Public Library. From March – May 2024, two Writers in Residence have worked with Year 10 English students to explore creative responses to the theme of dystopia. The Writer in Residence program runs as an elective, open to any student in Year 10 wanting to explore their career pathway as a writer and develop skills in poetry writing, the editing process, performance and delivery. Writers in Residence Jasmine Story is an Mparntwe based playwright, producer and performer interested in creating theatre that reimagines our consumerist society. In 2023 Jasmine temporarily relocated to Brisbane to participate in the Zen Zen Zo Creative Internship Program in physical theatre, and the Playlab Transmission Program for regional playwrights. She is developing her new work SMOKO, a high vis fever dream about rest and waste. She performed in site-specific physical theatre performance, Skelter directed by Gina Tay Limpus. In collaboration with Lili Favrel, Jasmine co-wrote and performed children’s psycho-educational theatre piece, Floopy’s Fuzzeled Feelings. Jasmine also performed in the debut of The Nestmakers by Betty Sweetlove. Jonny Rowden is a British-born performing artist based in Mparntwe Alice Springs. His practice has involved writing for both page and stage, performing, collaborating, photography, and video creation. Creatively, his interests lie in food and performance, working in non-typical theatre/performance spaces, and creating bespoke, intimate work for smaller audiences. DYSTOPIA: ZINE LAUNCH As part of the program, students have created a zine of their work and curated a public launch at Alice Springs Public Library. Join us for a lunchtime launch to meet the students and the writers and celebrate their powerful original pieces of writing. WHEN: Thurs 30 May 2024, 11.15am for 11.30am start This brand-new youth program was made possible thanks to the support of Alice Springs Town Council and the Alice Springs Public Library.

    Yawulyu from Yuendumu book launch

    June 1st 2024, 2:30pm - 3:30pm

    Join Cecily Napanangka Granites & Kathryn Thompson-Ferry to celebrate the release of their book Yawulyu from Yuendumu. With guest facilitator Meredith Lake About the book: In this tribute to the Warlpiri culture, Yawulyu from Yuendumu, Cecily Napanangka Granites brings to life the ceremony of Yawulyu, a ceremonial combination of body painting, dance and song. Raised in Yuendumu, Central Australia, Cecily follows in the footsteps of her mother, Dolly Nampijinpa Daniels, a Lawwoman, becoming a guardian of her people's traditions. Through her experiences as a bilingual teacher and involvement in the aftermath of the Aboriginal Land Rights Act (NT) of 1976, Cecily's journey is one of resilience and dedication. In this book, co-authored with her friend Katie Thompson, Cecily explores her connection to the sacred Jukurrpa - the Dreaming stories and Ceremonies that are the heartbeat of Warlpiri women's heritage. As Cecily confronts personal trials and the challenges Indigenous Australians face, her story emerges as a formidable testament to the strength of cultural legacy. This book, featuring powerful photos by Noel Ferry, is essential for those seeking to understand Indigenous Australians and the unbreakable bond between the people and the land. A website and a YouTube channel accompany this book. The URLs can be found within the book.

    Senior Play - Ruby Moon

    June 6th - June 7th 2024

    In Flaming Tree Grove, life appears to be picture perfect. Security and privacy are coveted and seclusion is its own reward. Until the day when little Ruby sets off to visit her grandmother at the end of the cul-de-sac and is never seen again. The neighbourhood fractures into grief and suspicion in the search for answers to a terrible deprivation and potential crime. Then a parcel arrives on her parents' doorstep...but where is Ruby and who knows what happened to her?

    Inner Child workshop

    June 8th 2024, 10:00am - 1:30pm

    This workshop invites you to reconnect or deepen your connection with your inner child. Very often we live our life that is based on conditioning and programming that we have taken on as a child due to unsafe environment and trauma that we experienced in life. This, if not healed or balanced will continue to affect our adult life.
