  • Stories, Highlights, Concept, Behind the Scenes

In this short documentary video, Rekindling participants from Thursday Island and the Northern Peninsula Area talk about their experiences in the program.

Since its inception in 2013, Rekindling has been delivered in communities across the country.

2018 marked Rekindling's sixth year. In addition to revisiting communities from 2017, the Youth Program Team visited three new communities: Darwin in the Northern Territory, Charleville in Queensland, and Thursday Island in the Torres Strait Islands to work with secondary school-aged students in each community.

Rekindling participants and Elders were encouraged to share local cultural stories, song and dance through a series of gatherings.This culminated in the young people performing their newly created dances for the community.

Bangarra’s Rekindling program is entirely supported by philanthropic trusts, foundations and a generous group of individual donors to Bangarra.
