SharingStories Foundation

We work with First Nations communities to protect, maintain and grow languages, stories and cultural heritage

Our History

Since 2012, we have worked with communities across Australia and utilised art, new media and vibrant technologies to support the recording, interpretation and sharing of cultural knowledge.


“We just did a Dreamtime story.
We brought it back into reality and then it’s in your heart.”

Lesley Coulthard, Adnyamathanha Cultural Custodian and Program Participant

Our Programs

We deliver community driven media arts initiatives that build capacity for cultural continuity and production.


We support distribution of community cultural outcomes, so all Australians can learn about our rich First Nations culture and people.



We have created an education platform where educators can embed First Nations perspectives.
