A long-standing relationship with Incite Arts has led to Corrugated Iron’s involvement in Unbroken Land over the years. 2020/2021 became a project of the Corrugated Iron Champions, a group of young leaders in the organisation who usually love visiting Alice Springs to be part of Unbroken Lands live production. Although devastated that this year didn’t support a physical realising, the Champions took on the challenge of creating an online contribution titled Top End Water.
This group of 14 to17 year olds reflected on the water theme and the different relationships people in the Top End have to water, compared to Central Australian communities. The resulting work, Top End Water, captures their creative and collaborative capacity. They wrote and recorded the words, they collected the imagery, played and recorded the music. For a group who are usually front and centre stage, this piece takes another direction.
Corrugated Iron supports young creatives across the Northern Territory to engage in the arts as participants, performers and audience members.
