The second annual Sanderson Alliance Art Award invited children and community members of all ages to focus on visual representations and activities that are ‘kind and brave’.

We are thrilled to have had over 100 beautiful pieces of artwork entered into the competition.

At the awards presentation ceremony entrants, family, friends and special guests enjoyed performances by students from the Manunda Terrace Thunda drumming group with Greg Jensen from the NT Music School and a lovely duet by Jayna and Joanna from Dripstone Middle School.

Catherine Phillips, Regional Programs Manager from the Smith Family said a few words about the Sanderson Alliance and invited everyone to participate in the community conversations.

The Sanderson Alliance collective is made up of people from twenty different schools and organisations and community members from Karama, Malak, Anula and Wulagi.

We want to create opportunities for the 4000 children and young people in the Sanderson area that will help them grow into happy, healthy adults.  We want them to know it’s their right to have safe and caring relationships with the people in their lives.

A lot of people in Sanderson are impacted by family violence. We think that our community, working together can make real change by showing our children and families what living in respectful, healthy relationships means.

This work is built around three central themes:

Caring for people and keeping them safe - Children can learn from a very young age that good relationships are respectful and responsible ones.

Kindness - Even small acts of kindness and compassion protect traumatised people and promote healing.

Bravery - We say NO MORE to family violence.

Thank’s to all the students who entered and especially the teachers and school staff who supported them.  We would like to thank Winsome Jobling, local artist for volunteering to be our judge again.

A big thank you to Sanderson Neighbourhood Activity Centre and Darwin Community Arts for supporting this event.  Special thanks to our local members Kate WordenNgaree Ah Kit, and Alderman Justine Glover for their encouragement, energy and support.

And a huge, huge thanks to all the kids from across our community for sharing their art with us - keep being kind and brave.
