Getting Together - Recreation In The Aboriginal Community
Getting Together looks at the need to take account of the specific requirements of Aboriginal communities when designing recreation programs and to recognise the necessity of introducing culturally appropriate activities into those communities. The recreational choices available are often much wider than first thought, and they may be used to bring the community together. This program shows examples of successful recreational activities in Aboriginal communities that can be organised at minimal cost. From Bickerton Island and Groote Eylandt in the Northern Territory, to Cherbourg and Inala in Queensland, activities such as bush pony club, theatre, contemporary music and traditional carving and painting are organised by local people for local people.
