The day included pottery and painting where Art Centre staff and older artists shared with the children stories about culture. If the enthusiasm is anything to go by, then the future is in good hands, this collaborative ‘Culture Day’ in Ali Curung created new opportunities for intergenerational learning.


DATE: Monday 3rd April, 2013
TIME: 11 - 3
PLACE: Alekarenge School under ‘the big shed’, (ALI CURUNG).

In any remote community ‘collaboration’ is a valued asset the Arlpwe Art Centre manager instructed the Ali Curung school teachers with helpful hints on pottery and using the potter’s wheel before the big day.
Arlpwe also supported the cultural day with the loan of the potter’s wheel and equipment and prepared the clay used on the day by the students.

Other activities included damper making and trying bush tucker.
