Rekindling 2017

  • 26 October 2017
  • Townsville, Pukutja

This footage documents the narrative Rekindling journey from both Pukatja and Townsville. In 2017, Bangarra's Rekindling team engaged with five new communities across five states: Warrnambool (Vic), Grafton (NSW), Townsville (QLD), Docker River (NT) and Pukatja (SA) and facilitated four Rekindling return visits: Horsham (Vic), Heywood (Vic), Yarrabah and Djarragun College (QLD), and Broome (WA).

The Rekindling program is tailored to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander teenagers in regional and urban communities. As we know, for many young people the choices they make and the activities they engage with in their teenage years can have an impact on their entire lives, as well as affecting their families and communities.
