In early September I took myself on an Accompanied Adventure, a new travel group initiated by artist Ingrid Bowen. I have never been to Alice Springs before and was eager to see the centre. We spent time at the Araluen Arts Centre for the Desert Mob 2019 exhibition and market day and a night viewing Desert Song. Highlights on the trip (beyond the landscape which honestly was so empowering and rich), were meeting some of the locals who shared their Arts including the Hermannsburg Potters, and the Tjanpi Desert Weavers. There is so much I need to analyse from this trip so this post will be just a minuscule of what I took in.
