Annual Plan 2010-2011 Page 28 of 28 ART AND CULTURE Target for 2027 What we have to do to achieve this Identified Needs for 2011 Context and constraints 2011 priority Borroloola to be a centre for Indigenous arts and culture for the Roper Gulf region Sustainable projects/ programs that support the retention of Art and Culture across the region to the next generation Make cultural education an important part of welcome to the region A cultural centre that can be used by the elderly and help educate other about culture and for tourist to visit. To support the sustainability of local celebratory events such as Boonu Boonu Festival and NAIDOC Celebrations. Lack of commercial and residential accommodation. Lack of available land for development. The design of the multi-purpose community hub (that has already received in principle support from the Trust) could incorporate a meeting place that could be used for cultural education purposes. Utilise existing or planned infrastructure to support the provision of cultural education facilities and art forms on a sustainable commercial basis. The aim is to help retain and respect the traditional Indigenous culture for the four language groups represented in the region. The particular focus is on educating youth, providing services to visitors and cross cultural training for new employees to the region.
