National Talk Black 130324

On todays National Talk Black via NIRS – National Indigenous Radio Service we have:

Dr Simon Quilty, CEO of Wilya Janta and Long-Term NT Doctor, talking about how Wilya Janta had welcomed funding and encourages more First Nations involvement in designing remote housing. Wilya Janta is currently working with community and industry to build community-designed homes in Tennant Creek, which will act as a feasibility study for culturally appropriate and climate resilient housing as temperatures continue to rise.

Edmonton Police, talking about Failing to move out of the path of emergency vehicles. In too many circumstances road users obstruct the path of emergency vehicles, delaying response times and potentially placing lives at risk. As soon as you become aware that an emergency vehicle is traveling in your direction you need to immediately pull your vehicle to the side of the road or out of the lane they are traveling in.

Rhys Miles, Artist and Umi Arts “You & Me” exhibiting artist, talking about his involvement with the Umi Arts, “You & Me” exhibition. The exhibition features 30 artworks from 15 First Nations artists, taking place Friday 15th March.
