    The 2017 Daly River Photography Enterprise Project

    The 2017 Daly River Photography Enterprise Project

    At the invitation of the Red Cross and the Nauiyu Ngenbimi Wirr Tal Committee, Enterprise Learning Projects (ELP) has been exploring micro-enterprise ideas with Daly River communities (including Nauiyu, Wooliana and Five Mile Creek) since July 2016. Through this process, photography has emerged as an exciting enterprise idea.

    To further explore the potential of this idea, ELP assembled a Photograhy Enterprise Project Team with the intention to develop a marketable product that shares the story of Daly River through photography. The team consisted of Daly River community members showing interest in photography, an ELP facilitator, and professional photographer, Rhett Hammerton.

    Photo’s taken by the team were digitally enhanced for the purpose of printing onto metal disks. The disks were then used to create a series of community magnets, key chains and earrings!

    The final product range showcases the art photography of local flora and fauna by artists; Mathias Sambono, Donna Foster and Cassie Sambono.

    Special thanks to the Red Cross, Nauiyu Ngenbimi Wirr Tal Committee and Ironbark Aboriginal Corporation for making this project possible.

     

     

     

    Bold Statement Fashion from The Top End - A Fashion Social Enterprise

    Bold Statement Fashion from The Top End - A Fashion Social Enterprise

    ELP is excited to share the story of the Northern Territory fashion social enterprise Magpie Goose.


    Magpie Goose is being incubated by ELP, working to address the extreme economic exclusion experienced by Aboriginal people through creating opportunities through enterprise and enabling non-indigenous Australians to connect with and share in Australia’s many Aboriginal cultures. 


    Magpie Goose only recently launched it's kickstarter campaign in February, hoping to raise $20,000.  By the end of the campaign, more than $100,000 was raised! 

    The bold prints from the Top End are clearly in demand across Australia.


    The brand proudly showcases textiles from four remote community art centres - Palngun Wurangat (Wadeye), Injalak Arts (Gunbalanya), Tiwi Designs (Wurrumiyanga) and Babbarra Women’s Centre (Maningrida).

    Magpie Goose is using any funding and income to contribute to the growth of the art centres it partners, with a long-term vision to assist Aboriginal art centres without screen-printing facilities.


    You can read much more about Magpie Goose in the press articles featured on our news feed.  Magpie Goose will be available to shop on the Yunmi platform soon!
