Radio National - Port Augusta

Posted By Paul

Another feature site for ABC Radio National:

‘In 2008 the South Australian government launched a regional development initiative focused solely on the arts. Every two years a regional city or town will become the venue for a 12-month program of high art and cultural events involving all of the state-funded performing arts organisations. The first regional centre to experience this bold experiment was the much maligned town of Port Augusta, which sits at the tip of the Spencer Gulf proudly proclaiming itself ‘the crossroads of Australia.’

Creative Spaces

We have been lucky enough to be working with the Creative Spaces project for the last twelve months.  In that time the scale, scope and potential of the project has grown enormously as more and more support has come on board.  The website was officially launched on the 20th February 2009 by Deputy Lord Mayor Susan Riley at the Boyd School Studios (managed and facilitated by Creative Spaces).

The website itself is a highly customised multi author build of Wordpress.  Racket managed all aspects of the project from infromation architecture through to the graphic design, XHTML & CSS coding and ofcourse the Wordpress build and integration.

Holding Our Tongues

Another interface we produced for the Radio National team:

“Holding our tongues is a Hindsight project about the long and painful task of reviving Aboriginal languages. Find out more…”

Australia has the highest rate of language extinction on the planet: that’s according to UNESCO who says language diversity is—like species diversity—rapidly declining. And once a language is gone, can it really be brought back to life?
