DREAMING AUSTRALIA has just returned from a successful cultural exchange tour into CHINA. We have been invited to bring additional artists from the Northern Territory from May 2020. It is our vision that Alice Springs community connect through Canberra and other east coast centres in preparing young people for this inter-national engagement. The BONNET SERIES is the beginning of this wider program.
Minister Dale Wakefield MLA has been a constant supporter and major sponsor and we anticipate her presence to launch the program.
Food and refreshments, flights and tour provided by DREAMING AUSTRALIA and funding partners.
We have four communities ready to join the BONNET SERIES from April 2020.
Summary of Project Aims:
“By creating large metal sculptures from disused car bonnets and a workshop for sorting parts and repairing motor vehicles we intend to create a meaningful project whereby young people are encouraged to spend time on Country with their homeland community. It enables young people a safe space to heal, learn new practical skills that can be used for life and most significantly reconnect to Country and family.”
