Description

In 2015, KALACC was awarded a substantial grant by the Australian Government under the Indigenous Advancement Strategy (IAS) to deliver youth cultural camps across four sites in the Kimberley region over a two year period. The camps seek to develop culturally invigorating youth activities in collaboration with local elders at each site. The ‘enablers for change’ lay within the individual. When change involves complex social, spiritual, cultural and emotional factors within a society in turmoil and dysfunction, individual commitment and involvement in a project such as the youth cultural camps is doomed unless a fundamental shift of perspective and world view is applied. Wayne will examine the aims of project and the methods used to motivate and mentor young participants while identifying the enablers for change within family burru’s, language groups and cultural blocks.
