Corrugated Iron Youth Arts invited a group of fourteen to seventeen year olds, to reflect on the water theme and the different relationships people in the Top End have to water, compared to Central Australian communities. The resulting work, Top End Water, captures their creative and collaborative capacity. They wrote and recorded the words, they collected the imagery, played and recorded the music. For a group who are usually front and centre stage, this piece takes another direction.
Corrugated Iron Youth Arts is a Darwin-based organisation working with young people around the Northern Territory. A long-standing relationship with Incite Arts has led to their involvement in ‘Unbroken Land’ over the years. This year the Corrugated Iron Champions, a group of young leaders in the organisation who love visiting Alice Springs, became a part of this project. Although devastated that this year didn't support a physical realising, the Champions took on the challenge of creating an online contribution.
Incite Arts present ‘Unbroken Land’ which is about bringing people together through community arts practice to experience diverse stories of belonging, celebrations of culture and our place in the landscape.
The ‘Unbroken Land’ water themed video works showcase the talents of our Alice Springs community on more far reaching online platforms, and to far greater audiences than the original planned live event. Access and inclusion will remain at the very heart of the virtual Unbroken Land, with closed captioning and audio description access features.
