Whats Been Happening ?

Our History:

This page is for the budding group of Writers, Poets, Song Writers & Muso’s that have surfaced from the writing workshop and performance night put on in Nhulunbuy by the NT Writers center in Sept. 2008.

This is the story so far:

16-9-2008: Writers, Poets and performers from Nhulunbuy & Yirrikala were fortunate to have a 3 day visit from the NT Writers Centre Executive Officer, Sandra Thibodeaux. Sandra started out her visit with a Performance evening at the Bali Pavilion at TAC on Friday night the 12th. The evening attracted about 30 writers, Poets, storytellers, Singer/Songwriter/Performers, and lovers of the performing arts.

In a relaxed atmosphere overlooking the blue waters of the Arafura Sea, the creative talent that we have in the region had the chance to perform their work for the enthusiastic audience. As the evening wore on and with some tasty finger food and a few drinks, the songs, poems and stories became all the more entertaining and sometimes insightful.
The performances were all original material, some heard for the first time in Nhulunbuy !
The next day saw a creative writing workshop held at the town library for Aprox 14 eager writers, keen to hone their writing skills.

The stories written on the day showed just how much imagination and creativity is waiting to burst out in the community.

At the end of the workshop it was resolved that we would meet again as a group and explore our creative potential further.

The feedback from Sandra was one of surprise at the unexpected level of enthusiasm & depth of Talent shown, not to mention the warm welcome and hospitality extended to her from the writing community in town.

Was a writers Open Mic night at The Arnhem Club Bali Pavillion on Friday the 16th of April. The evening was a success, with about 20 people attending.

Rob Stewart and Paul Dewhurst performed some original music. TAC Head Waiter Jesse surprised all with stirring recitals of Man from Snowy River, The Man from Ironbark and his own original poem. I even managed to slip in a few poems myself !
