Red Dirt Thinking Im delighted to herald the publication of a bumper issue of the Journal of Australian Indigenous Issues (JAII) Special Issue: Red Dirt research in Remote Australia. This publication brings together the remarkable work and achievements of CRC-REP researchers over recent years, focussed on Red Dirt Thinking. Weve all heard the term blue sky thinking to describe the vast array of things which are possible to imagine well Red Dirt Thinking captures an array of possibilities for remote Australia, its people, landscapes, communities and businesses: Red dirt is ubiquitous across remote Australia, vast, expansive and it gets into everything sums it up. This new issue of the Journal, guest edited by our own John Guenther, features articles, reports and analysis by the cream of CRC-REPs research talent. Some examples: Aboriginal Wellbeing in a Red Dirt Economy, by Sheree Cairney and Tammy Abbott Digging up the (Red) Dirt on Education, by John Guenther Aspirations for Meaningful Livelihoods by Eva McRae-Williams Are there enduring community values from mining? by Fiona Haslam McKenzie Voices from the Red Dirt on Education comments by leading Aboriginal and orres Strait Islander people wihtin the education sector More than a Place to Paint: the complicated business of Art centres, by Tim Acker and Gabrielle Sullivan Remote Knowledge for a Better Future, by Jan Ferguson and Apolline Kohen. I can personally vouch there is some great food for thought in these and the many other insightful articles in this issue of the JAII. For those whove wondered what CRC-REP has been up to, this is a great way to harvest our knowledge. Please contct us if would like to receive a copy.
