FRIDAY JUNE 20 2014 LIFESTYLE 39 V1 - CAVE01Z01MA Food kids focus FUNDING of $8000 has been provided to Red Hot Arts Central Australia by the Medibank Community Grants program. The money is to deliver a Food Security arts project during Kids Day on Sunday September 14 as part of the Alice Desert Festival which runs from September 10 -14. The Medibank Community Grants program supports local grassroots initiatives that encourage healthy eating, physical activity or community connectedness. Food security is a program for four to 12-year-olds and their families, to educate them about food security, healthy eating habits and encourage growing their own food. The program will involve activities including sensory performance, a family obstacle course, and writing session. Two sessions of 10-minute sensory performance will educate children and families about healthy eating habits. Families will create an obstacle course and children will make mud and compost balls that they will carry on a spoon through the obstacle course. At the end of the course children will be awarded with Food Security Agent badges and a bag of seeds. Seeds will be mixed with mud and compost balls and the artists will make children write about good eating habits and the future of food. The mud and compost balls will be used in their gardens.

Response to the singer songwriters first album in seven years has been almost overwhelming. Wormald said people have appreciated the sentiments in her first single No Tumbleweed about the need to be commit ted to achieve real change. So many programs are based on short-term goals and funding rather than sustainable and long-term outcomes that achieve change,she said. This has led to cynicism in the rural and Indigenous communities. My song talks about being there for the long haul. It is so important to build meaningful relationships. Lonely launch to crowd Michael Cafe will launch his debut album, Lonely Road, as part of Music NTs Original Recipe Week Picture: SUPPLIED LOCAL singer songwriter Michael Cafe will launch his debut album Lonely Road on Wednesday. The album was recorded in Alice Springs during his 12 years in town, and reflects living in Central Australia. For me my music is very fitting for the Alice Springs listeners. So its lovely for me to be able to launch the album in Alice Springs, Cafe said. The album is also a very good driving album, Ive been told it goes well with driving on the highway. Cafes style is reminiscent of the bands that make the foundation of Australian music, drawing on influences from Paul Kelly, Crowded House, Warrumpi Band and Midnight Oil. The album traverses styles of folk, rock, blues and roots to come together in an epic Central Australian journey. Lonely Road is made up of vocals, guitar, harmonica and yidaki by Cafe. Corey Noll can be heard on electric guitars, acoustic guitars, classical guitar and bass. Toby Robinson is on Dobro guitar, mandolin, banjo, David Bridie on grand piano, upright piano, keyboards and arrangements. Michael Godfrey kills it on the drums, bass and kurtzwhurl. The launch is on at Alice Springs Cinema as part of Music NTS Original Recipe Week, a seven-day celebration of NT Music. It will begin at 6.15pm.
