The Secret Behind Sweating and Weight Loss

You’ve just had a seriously sweat-filled workout, and you’re already feeling lighter. You step on the scale, and your suspicions are confirmed — you’ve actually lost a pound! Yes! This proves sw

15 Excellent Indigenous Art Centres To Support And Celebrate!

Some of the best and most important artwork in the country is being produced at art centres in Indigenous communities. Predominantly located in remote and semi-remote communities across Northern Territory, Northern Queensland, far north South Australia and Western Australia, art centres are hubs where artists young and old work alongside each other, sharing stories and transferring vital cultural knowledge. They are spaces for meeting, conversation, education, employment, economy and celebration!

We are so lucky to have this knowledge of Country and culture preserved by First Nations artists, and supporting art centres is a great way to respect this. But if you’re not sure what to look for, it can be a little overwhelming to know where to start.

For this article, we spoke to 15 different art centres and artists to learn more about their diverse practices, as well as representatives from the upcoming Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair (DAAF) and the Indigenous Art Code (IartC), who share their knowledge on things to consider to ensure an ethical transaction.

Buckle up – this is a long one, but for good reason!

Art Runs Generations Deep In The Family Of Molly Wattle Boney

When we ran the TDF Kids Art Awards earlier in the year, there was one artwork in particular that our team (and so many of our readers!) were immediately smitten by. It was a piece by five-year-old Molly Wattle Boney, who painted a beautiful golden wattle tree with sprawling branches, surrounded by cockatoos on a bright sky-blue background. We found out that Molly had her own Instagram account (run by her mum, Tessa!), and after a bit of snooping, saw that both Molly’s parents, Tessa Nuku and Brendon Boney, were also incredibly talented artists themselves. So we decided to get in touch!

Living the  good life in Ettalong Beach, New South Wales, the creativity of Molly, her parents and their extended family runs deep. We love what they’re about, and we reckon you will too!

Roast Cauliflower and Chickpea Salad with Tahini Dressing – The Design Files | Australia's most popular design blog.

FOODRoast Cauliflower and Chickpea Salad with Tahini Dressing - The Design Files | Australia's most popular design blog.

Today’s recipe brings together a classic Middle Eastern salad combination – cauliflower and chickpeas.  Humble ingredients with so much potential!  Anything you can make with a can of chickpeas is alright by me.

Roasted cauliflower really is a revelation. It is SO easy, simply break up your cauliflower into florets and pop it on a roasting tray – no oil , no seasoning required. It’s the easiest and most delicious way to eat cauliflower, IMHO.

Please note, I’m no food stylist (although I do try!), and for this particular recipe we quickly realised there really is nothing photogenic about creamy salad dressing, no matter how delicious it is! For this reason, our photographs above shows the dressing served on the side – for aesthetic reasons only! Before you serve your own version, do stir the dressing right through!

This salad is super versatile, it’s great served with grilled fish, roast or barbequed chicken, or perhaps with a juicy lamb cutlet. It keeps really well too, so will be perfect in your lunchbox the next day!
