Six applications in the Project Assistance category were recommended, valued at over $90,000 collectively.

Amongst the successful applicants, Carclew has been awarded $25,000 for their project Tjitjiku Tjukurpa (Children’s Dreaming) Community Celebration.

This funding will assist with a community celebration, which is the culmination of a cultural project to teach and record ancient Inma (dance and song) in Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara languages.

In partnership with Lee-Ann Buckskin and Associates, Carclew has been working with Elders, children and young people in the communities of Amata, Pukatja, Mimili and Davenport to explore the Seven Sisters Dreaming.
