Mentor Matt Aitken dancing with Western Empire
In 2020, six community groups embarked on their Dream Plan Do journeys. These groups were Second Generation Collective, Roots TV, Dynasty Youth, CREA Education, Equatoria Community and Western Empire. In addition to direct mentoring, community group leaders also received professional development through workshops led by experienced artists and facilitators who guided participants through:
• Aboriginal cultural awareness
• creating and delivering public presentations
• marketing and platforming their stories
• intercultural storytelling
• deep listening
Excursions to established WA arts and cultural institutions were also a key feature of the 2020–21 program. Community group leaders were able to extend their professional networks and develop connections with:
• Art Gallery of WA
• Perth Institute of Contemporary Art
• Perth Festival
• Fringe Festival
Be part of a movement that believes community participation in the arts can transform lives, inspire change and create a more inclusive society for us all.
Donations will support creative programs that make a genuine difference to the communities we work with.
