Comment on Gallery swap: Aborigines second in pecking order by Aranda.

For heaven’s sake. Why on earth would you place the gallery anywhere other than the Anzac Oval site?
South of The Gap, oh right – easy to commute to for tourists and town people then? It would become yet another white elephant and other failed project we can attribute to a lack of imagination.
For its economic success it needs to be near to the CBD, walking distance to cafes, restaurants, hotels and be easily accessible for potential employees to help run the place!
The project has potential to give an economic boost to the CBD where it is desperately needed.
While on one hand these “old minds” complain about the lack of economic activity in the town, shops closing etc, on the other they propose to put the gallery out in the sticks?
How does this make any sense?
There are no cultural considerations to the Anzac Oval site either, given that there are no sacred sites in the current planning area and if anything, provisions could be made as part of this project to better protect those that do exist nearby with weed management, rubbish collection etc.
And don’t give us the Anzac Oval Heritage Story. No-one gives a hoot who used to play footy on or use that oval in the 50s.
The fact is the future generations will benefit from good decision making now!

When are people in our camp going to see this for what it is?

She isn’t an on ground community person actually doing the hard yards in DV, families and children, community health, policy etc.
If elected it’ll be another disappointment.

Benedict Stevens is the male apmereke-artweye for Alice Springs. A big responsibility falls on his shoulders for many different issues that people would not see, especially in the current day contemporary Aborigine politics and constant badgering for consultation over town developments and issues.

All from a small section of an angry, bitter Ntulye family intent on discrediting other families and hell-bent on power and control.
