Wednesday 13 September: Indulge in dinner and a movie under the stars at Deckchair Cinema

The Deckchair cinema is a stroll from the conference venue.
This is what a recent visitor had to say about the Deckchair experience…
What an awesome way to watch movies…. laid back in my deckchair on a beautiful balmy evening with caramel popcorn and a chilled wine. This is a fabulous set up with bar and food. They even supplied cushions for free. This is a lovely way to spend an evening in Darwin.
Time: 6pm for dinner, drinks and networking followed by the movie when the sun goes down.
Cost: The cost of the event includes entry and movie, dinner and a drink on arrival. You can purchase additional drinks from the licensed kiosk, which sells wine, beer and soft drinks.
Deckchair Cinema is a non-smoking venue.

One family. Two wars. Three countries. What does it take to forge a new life far from home?
Filmed over 10 years, Constance on the Edge is an unflinchingly honest portrayal of one refugee family’s resettlement story in Australia.
Brave, lion-hearted, charismatic Constance, mother of six, confronts her painful past in war torn Sudan, and risks everything in Australia so her family can thrive.
Mary, Constance’s niece, finds it impossible to find a job. Vicky, her daughter, studies every morning from 4am, hoping to get into university. Charles, 23, is struggling with alienation and depression.
Constance on the Edge gets to the heart of a contemporary untold story about the courage and resilience it takes to build new lives. The film also highlights the important role communities play in encouraging a sense of welcoming, healing and belonging.
