Thank you to Steve, Camille and SRA.


Another long term supporter and advocate of SLIDE is should give them a go……..

Generating good ideas – be they big or small – is the secret to a successful creative team. The team at Eprint is dynamic, and just brimming with good ideas and technical skills.

There is Stan, the owner, who hails from Yorkshire, having studied graphic design at that hotbed of creative thinking, Leeds Metropolitan University. Simone, the Office Manager, studied design at CDU and holds a Batchelor of Media Arts and Business from Flinders University; Jessie, the junior designer, possesses the rarest of qualities – a terrific work ethic and a desire to learn all about design and printing.

Academic qualifications aside, what makes the team at Eprint unique is their extra-curricular abilities: Stan rides very fast motorbikes, drinks boutique beer, creates fermented vegetable dishes and has a close relationship with red heeler dogs. Simone creates sculptures from the skeletons of small animals and likes to preserve insects in resin. Jessie plays rugby, hunts pigs and catches barramundi on her days off.

So, between them, the Eprint team knows how to turn inspiration into ideas, visions into reality and keep an eye on the end goal. Their skills complement each other. After all, Stan knows the meaning of speed, Simone is totally organised and Jessie just goes hard!

Thanks Eprint we can’t do anything without you.

Cavenagh Theatre Trust

Cavenagh Theatre Trust, a steadfast arts legacy…..

Established in 1950 under the name Darwin Amateur Musical Comedy Society, with the name change occurring in the early 70’s forming what was known as Cavenagh Theatre Company. This organisation was the backbone and initial amateur theatre company in Darwin, producing local theatre productions for our community. For over 70 years the company shaped the arts scene, growing opportunities for artists and local production crew. By 2007 the company folded but continued in a Theatre Trust capacity acknowledging the need to support and encourage artists and non-funded groups to continue creating artistic works for Darwin audiences.

SLIDE Youth Dance Theatre would like to thank Cavenagh Theatre Trust, for their valuable support of Beam Me Up, Kate and the merit they place on the work that Joanna Noonan has been doing in the Territory.
