City of Darwin Creative Skills Register

The City of Darwin is putting together a Creative Skills Register to keep artists, creative professionals, and hobbyists up to date with opportunities. City of Darwin said: "We want to increase access to creative activities, paid opportunities and professional development programs as they become available in the municipality of Darwin for artists and creatives. So we are creating a register of artists, creative professionals and hobbyists." Visit https://www.darwin.nt.gov.au/creative-skills-register to sign up.

Free Music School in the Mall

During the October school holidays we will hold three free guitar lessons for young people aged between 10 and 16 in the Darwin Mall. This activity is part of DCA ‘The Makery’ project that aims to contribute to the transformation of the city into a Central Cultural District.

The Free Music School in the Mall is not funded, as aren’t most activities that are part of The Makery. Well, yes, we missed out on the Live Darwin funding; no sour grapes here, just a little bewilderment as to how an organisation with a track record on revitalising communities (see Malak), could be overlooked for attempts to invigorate the city.

Nonetheless, as always, equipped with more enthusiasm than resources, we continue to encourage people to participate in the arts and cultural development, and in the process make things better for everyone.

So, on the Monday, Wednesday and Friday of the October school holidays, from 11am to 11:45 we will have three introductory classes for budding guitar players. Parents and guardians can leave their young ones with us for the time, browse around, and then take them for a nice lunch somewhere in the city.

As mentioned, the Free Music School in the Mall is not funded, and thus we cannot provide refreshments to the participants, so please make sure that they have plenty of water and/or snacks if needed. What we can provide for participants is handouts and notes for further practising.

The activity in the Mall needs a busking permit from City of Darwin, and that can only be issued each morning, according to new regulations. If we miss out on a busking spot for the day, we won’t defy the order and expose participants to authorities enforcing the law, instead we will conduct the Free Music School in the Mall at The Makery, shop 6 West Lane Arcade.

Disclaimer: DCA will not be held responsible if following the lessons participants will nag their parents or guardians for a guitar of their own.

Tell me a story, remember what you said!

Storytelling is one of the oldest methods humans have embraced to communicate, transfer and create knowledge and culture. Different traditions employ different methods – oral, pictorial, songs, music and the written form, to mention just a few.

If you want to share a story or few come and sit around the “camp fire” at The Makery, shop 6 – Westlane Arcade, Darwin. We can digitally record the story with you, and according to your preference (e.g. audio only, video, still photographs put together in a clip).

With your consent, we can publish it widely on digital platforms, or just send it to you to remember what you said.

If you want to know more please email: beatsclips@darwincommunityarts.org.au - or call nic on 0434 732 550

Beats and Clips: Digital Stories

Beats and Clips: Digital Stories uses popular and contemporary approaches to digital photography, video, and audio to tell stories of communities. Some approaches include maximising mobile phones and tablets as tools, adapting One Take Movies, Street Photography, Photovoice and other methods that produce digital stories easily and effectively.

Project participants have the opportunity to showcase their work at community events and be rewarded cash prices through a peer and audience selection process.

The digital stories created can be distributed through Instagram, YouTube, Google, Facebook, SoundCloud, Twitter and other online channels.

Beats and Clips: Digital Stories workshops are held every Monday, commencing August 21, at the DCA Studio, Malak Shopping Centre, between 2pm and 6pm.
