Description

Join 2019 Northern Territory Library Creative in Resident Alicia Scobie in-conversation with a special guest as part of her project titled Tennant Creek Truths.

The event, facilitated by Anneke Barnes, Assistant Director, Collections and Engagement, aims to share a differing perspective of life in Tennant Creek, one of positivity, love and hope from important Territorians who have lived and still live in this remote Territory town and surrounding communities.

“Negative and unhelpful rhetoric appears to have a hold on Tennant Creek and it is not fair for Territorians and the nation to have this view of a remarkable town and its enduring, compassionate and loyal community members.” - Scobie 2019

The Creative in Resident program is an ArtsNT initiative that provides support for three Northern Territory artists or creative practitioners to take up a residency in three Northern Territory cultural collecting institutions.
