|Jimmy Little Visit|
Musician Jimmy Little visited Ramingining during the Bak'bididi Festival in October, as part of his Jimmy Little Foundation 'Thumbs Up !' workshops. Visiting various communities in Arnhem Land to promote a healthy lifestyle, Jimmy and his team wrote and recorded songs with local kids, while his chef Cos Tambling conducted cooking workshops. A highlight of the Bak'bididi festival was being entertained by Jimmy Little on the Saturday night of the festival.
Bula'bula artists participated in the project, by creating a big 'Thumbs Up!' painting as part of the workhops, which depicted healthy food options, including local bush tucker.
