Gunbalanya Back To School Parade
Bait Fridge members were invited by Jack Hodges and the Adjumarllarl Aboriginal Corporation to Gunbalanya, Bininj country, West Arnhem Land, as part of their Stronger Communities For Children programming. Over 2 days, the group collected discarded materials from the local dump and turned a Toyota Hilux into a a Croc Car to lead the Back To School parade - a walk through the community with music and posters to celebrate the beginning of the new semester after the six week holiday break.
This trip was a meet and greet, leading towards our second, longer workshop visit to Gunbalanya in October 2021.
Thankyou to Andrew Maralngurra and the Adjumarllarl Aboriginal Corporation, and also a big thankyou to Tarisha Blitner.

Over the course of a week, we worked with a small group of local young people in Streaky Bay (the place known to be where the largest ever Great White Shark [on a hand reel] was caught) to create costumes, videos, carboard-and-rubber band instruments, and a final parade.Photos and videos by Emmaline Zanelli.
