We work together with community participants to create vibrant, creative interpretations of cultural knowledge and support opportunities for communities to share selected works with the wider public.
Our programs are based on learning ‘Both Ways’ – Elder and child, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, speaking and listening, traditional and modern, oral storytelling and digital storytelling.
CREATE programs build creative and digital media skills, stories and culture in community participants. Returning to Country lies at the heart of all programs.
Digital/Creative Storytelling reclaims and builds language and story in community participants through intergenerational transmission of knowledge on Country and interpretation of knowledge shared through a variety of creative practices.
Language reclamation and revitalisation is part of all programs and involves documentation and development of engaging, accessible resources. Programs build skills in local language workers.
