Harold Furber (pictured) and Owen Cole, Chair and Deputy Chair of the Steering Committee of the National Indigenous Culture Centre, describe as “tragic” the unnecessary division caused by the proposed compulsory acquisition of the Anzac Oval site.

“If it’s going to have credibility ... it’s got to be led by Indigenous people" and “We’re going to do it the right way ... not from the top, but coming from the bottom up.” Owen Cole and Harold Furber updated the Town Council on a National Indigenous Cultural Centre for Alice Springs, a project quite distinct from the government's proposed art gallery, in focus and process. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
