DKA’s Michael Lid­dle had a yarn with CAA­MA Radio about Codes 4 Life, a pro­gram for Abo­rig­i­nal men. Codes 4 Life asks par­tic­i­pants what it means to be an Abo­rig­i­nal man with respon­si­bil­i­ties in 21st cen­tu­ry Aus­tralia. Michael draws on the wis­dom of his Elders and his own expe­ri­ences to pro­vide guid­ance to Abo­rig­i­nal men through these work­shops. Codes 4 Life has been deliv­ered to great acclaim in Alice Springs, Ten­nant Creek, Alpar­ra, Ti Tree, Laram­ba, Titjikala, Harts Range, and Ntaria (Her­manns­burg). 

Michael says, Each per­son­’s designed to car­ry a tool, a skillset. I’ve just seen some­thing that’s bro­ken, and I want to chuck in my tools to help fix it, along with oth­er peo­ple’s tools, so we can build some­thing together.”
