Dusseldorp Forum is supporting Bangarra’s Rekindling Youth Program that inspires pride, kinship and a sense of strength in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander secondary school aged students through a series of dance residencies.
Rekindling’s team work closely with community leaders and Elders to cultivate the sharing of local stories, songs and dance. The students develop performance skills and confidence to create dance performances about their learnings.
Rekindling has been delivered in 25 communities across five states with almost 460 students completing the program.
Philanthropy has the potential to provide long-term capital that can drive innovation in government policy. In 2010, philanthropist Julius Colman entered into a memorandum of understanding with the Victorian Government.
Nawarddeken Academy students, teachers, rangers and elders came together to reconnect with Country and connect Bininj (Indigenous) science and balanda (non-Indigenous) science on their annual camp – this year to Barradji.
Dusseldorp Forum partnered with Our Place and Early Start (University of Wollongong) to develop tools for Early Learning educators to measure children’s cognitive, self-regulatory, language, numeracy and social development.
