Picture: CHRISTINE ANSORGE BAKING is one of lifes great pleasures and there is something unquestionably comforting about the smell of cookies baking in the oven or the sight of a freshly made chocolate cake with vanilla icing. But there is another side to it all and local proprietor of MeeMas Kitchen, Lolly and Craft Shop, Silvana Munn has told of how baking has helped her cope and ultimately conquer her black dog. Finding herself stuck in a rut of depression Ms Munns love of baking quickly became her saviour. This is my therapy. It gives me joy and purpose, it keeps me busy and thats how I can work with it, Ms Munn said. I know there are people who want to buy my goodies so I must pull myself together to make them because I know there are people waiting for me. Depression makes you feel alone and isolated and you think nobody cares and my baking makes me feel cared for even though I have lots of people who care for me husband, children, friends. Baking in Alice Springs for the past seven years, Ms Munns shop is stocked with a range of delicious, fresh, homemade goodies from biscotti, almond breads and other confectionery. Big names show way for gallery Department of Tourism and Culture chief executive Alastair Shields completes the set, joining co-chairs Hetti Perkins and Philip Watkins, whose positions were announced in February.

Its one of the first times government has put their money where their mouth is and come to the table with a real offer and genuine interest. Arts Minister Lauren Moss wouldnt be drawn on possible locations for the project, saying there were many opinions.
