The Way Things Work Round Here

In the Cultural Solutions issue of the Griffith Review, Cathy’s article, ‘The Way Things Work Round Here’, appears in the Cultural Solutions issue of the Griffith Review. It tells the story of the development of the Godinymayin Yijard Rivers Arts and Culture Centre in Katherine, Northern Territory, and its impact on this small, remote, yet culturally and strategically important town. Cultural Solutions explores new ways people are working together and solving social problems that governments and other organisations have struggled with.
