The event was totally free, which included movies, delicious Indonesian finger food and soft drinks. They also had giveaways of German Flags, Pens, Pins with the Australian & German flag together and key lanyards.
|Why do kids love flags so much and collect them everywhere they go?|
I felt bad for the organisers. They had an article in the NT News, they advertised on the NT Department of Education Website and had posters up around Darwin.
This once happened to me at university roughly 10 years ago. I was the Women's Officer for my Campus in Melbourne, with the unpaid job came a bucket of money $2000 for spending on women centred activities. One evening I showed a current movie called; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; it cost over $300 to show the movie to a public audience. I advertised on campus and handed hundreds of leaflets for the free screening with lots of positive feedback. Only 3 people turned up :-( It was highly embarrassing and disappointing. It made me disheartened to organise any other "free" activities.
Today was a Spend Free Day. Yay for me!
Any interesting Free Activities in you area? Do you go to them or do you think they're not worth your time? Love to hear your views.
