1. Barkly Regional Arts presents- Breath Away; an original song written by Winanjjikari Music Centre employee, Marcus Finlay. This song was part of a collection of songs that Marcus mastered and Produced himself at Winanjjikari Music Centre.
    This film clip was filmed and edited together by our youth media team- Media Mob and trainer Shayne Johnson. As part of the Media Mob's 12 week training, their task was to select a song by one of our local musicians, break it down, storyboard it, organise actors and create a filming schedule. They spent three days filming all the parts and then headed to their edit suite to cut it together. This film clip is another example of how the arts programs within Barkly Regional Arts collaborate together to develop their arts practice and to create products that showcase the excellent work happening in the Barkly Region.

Winanjjikari means “Belonging for singing” in the Warramungu language. The music centre was established in October 2006 after a group of Aboriginal men sat down at Barkly Regional Arts Inc. in Tennant Creek in Central Australia to talk music. They talked about how they told stories through song since the dawn of time and how they could tell those stories through contemporary music.

The centre was established with the assistance of Barkly Regional Arts Inc. and through a shared responsibility agreement between Barkly Regional Arts Inc; The Aboriginal community of the Barkly Region, the Office of Indigenous Policy Coordination, the Attorney Generals Department, DCITA, DEWR, DEET, Papulu Appar-Karri Aboriginal Corporation, Julalikari Council Aboriginal Corporation and the Tennant Creek Town Council. This agreement was the first and has been the most successful of its kind in Australia.

The Winanjjikari Music Centre is designed to teach and assist Barkly musicians to develop new skills in music production. It is part of by Barkly Regional Arts Inc, the Barkly Regions art centre.
