Germination: Tree Planting and BBQ/Street Party in Woolloongabba
36 Sword St, Woolloongabba QLD 4102, Australia
Who thinks Brisbane needs more street trees? WE DO!

That’s why we’re holding another community tree planting event on Saturday, 27 April, this time in Woolloongabba.

From 9am to noon, residents are invited to come help us plant street trees around the southern half of Woolloongabba. We’ll be meeting at the small park on Sword Street to pick up equipment, before heading off to get our hands dirty (dirty hands optional – gloves provided). Council is providing shovels and other gardening equipment, but please bring your own hat, closed-in shoes and sunscreen. As well as planting trees, we might organise a few people to pick up rubbish and help clean up the streets if we have enough volunteers.

Another Country – Wed 1st May19:00-20:15
Newfarm Cinema

get tickets:

Legendary Aboriginal actor David Gulpilil has spent his adult life trying to navigate his way through two very different cultures: that of his Yolngu people and that of the colonising Australian culture. In Another Country, he gives us first-hand insight into the confusions and chaos that occur in the clash between these cultures.

At the beginning of last century the Australian Government, along with entrepreneurs, opportunists and ‘do-gooders’, made a concerted effort to gain control of the lands of the Yolngu people across northern Arnhem Land, along the central part of northern Australia. The long succession of would-be cattle barons, missionaries and government agents failed to dispossess the Yolngu of their lands, but the introduction of their new ways and different laws succeeded in eroding the heart of a complex culture that was once strong, defiant and self-sufficient.

Another Country is a documentary which considers, from the inside, the ramifications of one culture being dominated by another.
