Funding changes jeopardise art for communities

Australia’s leading community arts and cultural development organisations have just heard from the Australia Council for the Arts that their six year fundings will not be honoured. These organisations, including Darwin Community Arts, deliver projects that strengthen community capacity, using the arts as a vehicle to improve health and well-being outcomes. Identified as leaders in the sector, they operate nationally to work with some of Australia's most disadvantaged communities. The fourteen major community arts organisations are meeting with the Australia Council on the 4 September.

Changes to the Saturday Shed Program

The Malak Art Shed continues each Saturday morning from 9.30am to 12.30pm with a special focus activity on every 3rd week. On September 6th there will be 'Come n Try' Mosaics. We are devising a new garden path so come and make your mark in the Community Garden with mosaics.

Huge thanks to Paul Wyatt and Carolyn Clark for their tremendous efforts in making such a successful community art space. Sadly both have finished up with DCA during August and we wish them the best with their next projects.
