Description

The Ngarluma and Yindjibarndi lands in the Pilbara area of WA comprise of over 11,000km2 of vast mountain ranges and gorges, rolling rocky outcrops and rivers, and spectacular coastline. It stretches from the azure waters of the Pilbara coast to the Millstream-Chichester National Park to the south, from around Whim Creek in the east to just west of Pannawonica.

Importantly, these income streams are allowing NYFL to devote increasing budgets towards our constitutional requirements. Our membership has grown from an initial 320 when the Agreement was signed in 1998 to currently in excess of 1800 people – and is still growing.

The Ngarluma Yindjibarndi Foundation Limited is committed to promoting the interests of its beneficiaries, and particularly the Ngarluma and Yindjibarndi people. Driven by a committed and visionary Board, it is developing business activities which provide revenue streams over and above the initial funding stream from our North West Shelf Gas partners, essential to continue to provide assistance as membership soars over 1,800 as at March 2017. These activities also provide training and employment and business opportunities for local people, and present the NYFL brand in a positive sense in front of resource companies, governments at all levels and the broader community.

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.
