The LittlePrick Another Territory lifestyle magazine came into being in 2012, after Therese Ritchie heard Rob Knight, the then Northern Territory Minister for Young Territorians, call Indigenous children “little pricks” for burning the Australian flag during the Australia Day demonstrations in Canberra that same year. Enlisting a team of local Territory artists, Ritchie orchestrated and curated two exhibitions, The LittlePrick Editions (5July 2012) and From LittlePricks BigPricks grow (5 April 2013), hosted by Darwin photographer David Hancock of Gallery Two Six, Darwin. The BIG book of LittlePricks An artist’s safe guide to the Northern Territory (2014) is a limited edition book and the third installment in the LittlePrick series. In early 2017, LittlePrick held it’s fourth exhibition Lies Damned Lies and Fracking in response to the NT Labor Government’s Scientific Inquiry into Hydraulic Fracturing in the Northern Territory. Watch this space for the next LittlePrick show!
