Bangarra Dance Theatre
Bangarra is Australia’s national premier Indigenous performing arts company, utilising dance, music and language to retell and rekindle Australia’s rich Indigenous history. The Foundation entered a three-year funding partnership to support the expansion of Bangarra’s Rekindling Program. The Program aims to inspire pride, kinship, positive life choices and a sense of custodianship in young Indigenous Australians. This is achieved through a series of short residencies (called “gatherings”) in schools and community centres that focus on high-school-aged students. The gatherings allow Bangarra to connect young people and community elders so that stories and culture are shared across generations.
