Malak Community Shed officially launched

Malak Community Shed is a new DCA project promoting creativity, sustainability, art and culture and a sense of community. The Malak Community Shed will be a focal point of the new community space in the underground car park at the Malak Community Square. The Community Shed will be run by a community support group that includes community members and Darwin Community Arts volunteers in consultation with local Malak stakeholder organisations.

The Community Shed will be used for meetings, seminars, cultural exchange, arts skills training, creation and knowledge transfer, repairing and refurbishing of re-cycled goods for re-purposing that will include bicycles, furniture or computers equipment. It will also be a place for learning and understanding, a place to meet new people.

The Malak Community Shed was officially launched on Tuesday, 29th January 2013. There are many upcoming workshops in the month of February. We are still looking for volunteers and people from community who want to pass on their knowledge, gain new skills or simply meet new people. For more information check out the attachement, alternatively contact Paul Wyatt 0407 454131 or paul.wyatt@darwincommunityarts.org.au.

The first community shed project to be established in the Northern Territory will be in at the Malak Community Square (former Malak Shopping Centre) and will be coordinated by Darwin Community Arts and funded from the Australian Federal Government through the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC).
