SEPTEMBER Sat 21 & 22 Jabiru Golf Club Biathlon, Jabiru Mon 23 - 27 Mental Health Week, Jabiru Sat 28 - Oct 5 Kakadu Bird Week, Kakadu MANINGRIDA ENJOYS FILM EVENING UNDER THE STARS The Maningrida community were treated to a lovely evening under the stars during the recent visit from the NT Travelling Film Festival. Maningrida were treated to an exciting visit from the NT Travelling Film Festival recently which saw around 150 community members come together for the night. To celebrate the occasion, the Maningrida kids spent time creating tea candles in jars prior to their visit, and also decorated some banners to welcome Maningrida and the Maningrida films, which were tied up on the fence. Six young people in the community also spoke on the night to welcome the community and introduce the event, which included three Maningrida films being screened in front of the great audience. Babbarra Women's Centres film Jarracharra was played and this was about their exhibition in France as well as one which was about the winds that travel across this land to indicate it's dry season and time to move across this country. Another film shown involved the 2018 Maningrida College graduates on their schooling journey and the dedication and hard work it took them to graduate year 12. And, finally one featured Maningrida's young people explaining why they love Maningrida which was certainly a hit to watch. Short films from all over the NT were also shown throughout the evening. Northern Territory Travelling Film Festival showcases the outstanding short film, television and video productions from the NT, capturing the stories, culture and landscape of our iconic region and the people that call it home. It is always a popular event when they visit West Arnhem communities. The ladies in Gunbalanya have been extremely busy these past few weeks hand-making shoulder bags and zip bags for their first order, as part of a project supported by Dreamtime Solutions. The order has been completed with an incredible 40 bags in total - well done ladies. Toddler quilts, skirts, candles and soaps are also being produced with the soaps benefiting the community to help with skin conditions. The garden is also thriving and produce from it is being used to cook up in lunches. Keep up the great work everyone. GUNBALANYA LADIES SHOW CREATIVE FLAIR
