Evening Event

Darwin Fridge FestivalDarwin Fridge Festival Public Forum

4:30pm Thursday 30 October

Darwin Fridge Festival encourages people to make recycled art using old refrigerators and turn them into pieces of art. The festival's motto in 2014 is: "Be a part of it, make art" and "Anyone can participate".

How do we make people more aware of sustainability and other environmental issues through arts? Can we attract people's attention to important causes through arts activities? How do we motivate people to participate?

Speakers are from Charles Darwin University, Environment Centre NT, Darwin Community Arts and individual artists from Darwin and Timor-Leste.


Land RightsLand Rights Petition

22 September – 16 November

The Northern Territory Library will be displaying a copy of a unique 1972 Land Rights Petition. The petition, signed by 1,000 Aboriginal people from across Australia, is one of the most important documents in the history of the struggle for land rights. Activist Bill Day worked with Larrakia people and the Gwalwa Daraniki Association in Darwin to create the petition which was posted to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The petition, now held and carefully restored by the National Archives of Australia, called for land rights and political representation for the Aboriginal people of Australia.
