Inspiring pride, kinship and a sense of strength in young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

The Bangarra Youth Program ‘Rekindling’ ran four programs in Cunnamulla and communities north of Cairns in 2021. The program inspires pride, kinship and a sense of strength in young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders through a series of dance residencies in secondary school-aged students. Participant’s researched and gathered stories with guidance from Elders within their communities, developing skills to produce thought provoking performances and community engagement.
