In a new partnership with dLux MediaArts (dLux) and YouthWorX NT, The dLab National Program will be rolling out in Katherine, Binjari and Rockhole for Youth Week in April 2014. The dLab National Program delivers hands-on skills development workshops in science, art and technology for young people focusing on young women from CALD and Indigenous backgrounds.

dLux is a not-for-profit media arts organisation promoting grassroots community cultural development. The dLab National Program’s mobile toolkit and learning methodology provides a creative bridge between local knowledge and science learning.

Following the success of Wagga Wagga, Kempsey and Wilcannia, dLux has partnered with YouthWorX NT to bring the dLab National Program to communities across the region. In a series of residencies the dLab Program endeavours to build local skills and activate resources relevant to the community.

Youth Week marks the dLab Program’s first residency and will tap into the skills of Australian Geographic Science Tour Photographer and founder of Explore PNG, Daryl Byrne and Interdisciplinary Designer and dLux Program Manager, Alexia Estrellado.

Supported by the Office of Youth Affairs (NTG) the team from dLux will bring an esky full of cool equipment for workshops in Youth Week. Springing from this year’s Youth Week theme ‘Our Voice, Our Impact’ dLux will focus on providing new skills for young people to express their voice and showcase their ideas.
