Connecting to Country

Connecting to Country provided funding up to $30,000 to enable Aboriginal communities based in the Pilbara and South West regions to spend time on Country and strengthen links between their communities, Country and culture.  

Objectives

  • Facilitate sharing of cultural knowledge and skills between generations, such as preservation of language, stories and dance.
  • Recognise cultural leadership within the Aboriginal community and support leadership development in young people.
  • Contribute to stronger community mental health and wellbeing through culture-specific programs.
  • Promote traditional ways of maintaining cultural knowledge.

Applications to Connecting to Country are now closed.
