Three characters, three stories, many images...

Deb Clarke

Deb left Sydney in 2002, aged 49, coming to Alice to join Charlie Carter, as his partner and co-worker on the Larapinta Trail. She had zero experience as a tour guide and nil of 4-wheel driving. She didn’t even have that much experience of Charlie..! But 22 adventurous and rewarding years later she is still here and still with Charlie. Very much part of this community and integral to a broader web of artists from all over the country, watch and listen as she unpacks her life in a uniquely creative way.

Charlie Carter

Behind the hand that pens many a letter to the Alice Springs News, the Advocate/Centralian, and the Conversation, is a man with a rich history in science, activism, tourism and adventure. Recently retired at age 76, Charlie still lives his life in relentless pursuit of information about science, sustainability, politics and the environment. And is not afraid to speak his mind as you may well know!

Pip McManus

Pip McManus arrived in Mparntwe/Alice Springs in 1981, thinking it would be a brief 6 month stop en route to more exciting destinations overseas. Instead she found an extraordinary cross roads of cultural and historical intensity. Pip was instrumental in establishing the first public art policy in town. These days Pip’s art practice encompasses design, video and multimedia installation.
