A local ear health campaign offering entertainment and giveaways was one of the attractions at the Desert Harmony Festival in Tennant Creek.

Organised by CAAMA Productions (Central Australian Aboriginal Media Association), the resource packs and live outside broadcast provided information about otitis media (OM or middle ear infection) and how to prevent ear problems.

Young attendees of the festival were excited to receive the free ‘show bags’, which included big children’s storybooks, colouring crayons and a Listen up! DVD which was produced by CAAMA Productions, Beck Cole and the Australian Government’s National Indigenous ear health campaign, Care for kids’ ears.

Giveaways included informational booklets, children’s activity books, Listen up! DVDs, face washers and soap.
