Description

Theatre Kimberley has been providing a range of opportunities that enrich and create a sense of wellbeing through community engagement, for over sixteen years in the region. Community cultural development practices are at the core of all the organisation’s undertakings, and these also capture the unique environment and artistic inspiration of the communities in which Theatre Kimberley exists. Theatre Kimberley’s specific objectives are to:

  • Promote resource and develop performance theatre from the Kimberley for the Kimberley and Australia
  • Foster and encourage training and professional development for communities in all aspects of theatre-based practice
  • Develop collaborative creative partnerships
  • Support social and academic learning programmes throughout the community

Theatre Kimberley’s excellent standing amongst the arts and community sectors alike reflects the organisation’s history of quality theatrical endeavours, the scale of productions and breadth of community engagement not matched by any other organisation in the North West, as well as assisting in the establishment of many local artists emerging careers. A social and emotional connection is created with Theatre Kimberley performers and participants who use these projects as a ‘spring board’ for many future theatre training and work, whether in the region, interstate and overseas. Theatre Kimberley offers training and career pathways to artists and facilitates wider understanding of the important role arts plays in making the Kimberley a great place to live. Theatre Kimberley works across ages and cultures. A whole-of-community approach includes extensive work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the region.

There has also been a particular focus in the organisation on developing youth programmes as well. Operating under the umbrella of Theatre Kimberley, Sandfly Circus was begun over ten years ago, providing opportunities for involving children and young people through its classes and community performances. Sandflies is currently made up of approximately 80 children and young people participating across four regular weekly classes. Sandfly Circus students work with a cohort of local trainers in Broome, and the skills of local trainers are often supplement by visiting artists in residence from other places, who are professional circus performers with a demonstrated record. There is one major Sandfly show each year along with smaller performances and workshops in the communities.

Sandflies addresses a number of needs in the local region. Importantly this includes reducing inequalities in access to programmes that enhance skill sharing and essential tools and that may assist young people to make healthy and creative life choices. Participating younger people also gain a chance to share respect and ideas, and to learn from older members through informal peer tutoring. In addition, and as above, young Sandflies are continued to be supported in their entry to further education and/or employment in the arts.

Yorgum Aboriginal Corporation

This corporation offers an autonomous, Aboriginal-specific community-based counselling and referral service.

  • Charity:Aboriginal,Local Community,Mental Health
  • Type:Aboriginal,Association

Details

Description

We provide an environment to enhance the healing process for Aboriginal individuals and their families experiencing emotional distress, and working towards empowerment collectively and individually.

At all times we operate within the framework of Aboriginal Terms of Reference.

Yorgum has taken on the principals of trauma-informed and is working towards being a trauma informed service.

The name “Yorgum” is a Noongar name for a large red flowering gum tree which has healing properties. Aboriginal people have used the gum for many years in the treatment of numerous ailments, including diseases of the eyes.

The name is an expression of the life-sustaining image of the living tree. The deep roots, rising sap, branches reaching to the sky, the shelter given and the home provided to the many forms of life-insects, reptiles, birds and other animals. It is a symbol of connectedness and inter-dependence in the diversity of living beings. This image conveys the philosophy of the Yorgum staff and the way in which they work.

Abuse can be compared to a tree with the root system being affected by some of the factors such as loss of culture, identity, low self-esteem, unresolved cultural traumatic experiences.

The lack of consistent, supportive and loving relationships and the absence of positive life enhancing values are like the soil in which the tree grows. A tree is an organic system. If the whole system is diseased, you can’t just treat one of the roots and expect the rest of the tree to be healthy. You must treat the whole tree as well as the soil within which it grows.

The underlying philosophy is the valuing of our diversity; in different individuals, different families; language groups and people from places who are included and respected; that human differences can be accepted as expressions of our uniqueness and capacity to survive.
