Make 2016 your year to get involved in your local arts scene, go to shows, watch plays, listen to community radio, support your friends and your neighbours and just get amongst it, writes LAURIE MAY (pictured).

 

The Tongue will hip hop to Alice Springs

 

 

 

Local rapper Hugh "Man" Winterflood aka SkankMC describes as a "huge gig" the performance on July 27 by Sydney hip hop artist MC The Tongue (pictured). "He will be on his national tour and is coming to play a gig here in Alice for free, at Bojangles," says SkankMC.

Councillor pursues plan to scrutinise performance of government agencies, NGOs

Above: Cr Steve Brown at the turnoff (in progress) into the new suburb of Kilgariff. He says council should make sure the development of affordable residential land there becomes a top priority for the NT Government.

 

Publicly funded institutions will be getting marks on a monthly basis for what they are doing – or not doing – for Alice Springs, if newly elected Councillor Steve Brown gets his way.

"We'll be marking them up or down," he says, "and the results will be made public."
This evaluation of "key performance indicators" will embrace Federal, state and local government instrumentalities and departments, as well as the myriad of local non-government agencies (NGOs) funded from the public purse, including Aboriginal organisations.
Performance will be judged from the perspective of the town council "because it is the town's principal elected body" and would be in charge of the initiative. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.

Arts ambush

 

 

Curious tourists, mothers with prams and workers on their lunch break
walking down the Todd Mall yesterday were unexpectedly joined by three
silent, bright eyed, pale clothed, ‘other-old-worldly’ strangers.

This was the Post Family performance, the third of the ‘Happenings’
in this year’s Alice Desert Festival. As we all know, the Festival
features a vibrant program celebrating artists, dancers, actors and
musicians from Central Australia – besides a selection of what I’m told
are Australia’s hottest acts. Pictured are The Post Family trying to figure out Todd Mall. Photo by OLIVER ECLIPSE.

Mother, father and three daughters came together to win the Fantasia
category and were chosen for acquisition at the annual Wearable Arts
Awards on Saturday. Mother is Colleen Byrnes, a veteran of the
awards and multiple prize-winner over the years. Husband Tony joined her
as creator and together they fashioned from metal pieces, test tubes,
wires and crystals exquisitely detailed bird-like forms to adorn Shae,
Bec and Nikki in their Fluoro Swan Trilogy (pictured).
The trio's appearance on stage was greeted with gasps of awe and
appreciation from the audience, the only time this happened en
masse  during this year's presentation, no doubt helping to assure
them of a win. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
