Alternative Interventions

Aboriginal homelands, Outback Australia and the Centre for Appropriate Technology

Alan Mayne

Not all interventions in Aboriginal Australia are inspired by external agents, politics or ideology. Some arise from simple, pragmatic responses to community needs where people and their aspirations are central.

Historian Alan Mayne unravels a story of people, place and relationships. At once both personal and intensely political, this is a journey of ideas into action; intervention through innovation.
