Comment on Chamber flicks arts & cultural centre project to underachiever Tourism NT by David Chewings.

What is the matter with you guys in middle management Centralia??
Still no reply from Jeff Huyben [Tourism Central Australia]. A poor response indeed from Kay Eade [Chamber of Commerce]. Precious little from [Tourism NT] CEO John Fitzgerald except to fly down, announcing crisis meetings – just another attempt to try keep it all in-house.
Is it any wonder that the proposal for a national indigenous arts and cultural centre has never reached first base?

Chamber flicks arts & cultural centre project to underachiever Tourism NT
You say “Tourism NT has a record of almost 20 years of dismal underachieving …”
I wish to say that all our tourism management past and present should hang their heads in collective shame. Do they think they are totally unaccountable?
You have written a sad but good report on just one malaise which plagues the Alice.

A star on British TV, ignored by Tourism NT
Well said Terri M of Arizona. The tourism commission knows how bad they are and that has been the subject of previous ASNO reports. They operate in the same myopic manner which came from another age and which was in denial of anything indigenous. The road ahead will not be easy and will require respect for all players and exceptional leadership.

This is a very grave issue for Central Australia. The situation at Mataranka involving Tina McFarlane and her family shows just how quickly things can turn. I would advise all Alice Springs people to watch this space and take note of those who know about water for example, Rod Cramer.
