A KWT grant to Wiradjuri/Wotjubaluk Koorie health/social work professional A.J. Williams, is allowing an often unheard from group to air their views in a video project launching in 2020.


" This project ‘nhal muran birrang’ (in my own words) shows different aspects of culture as told by 19 adolescent boys.  The digital stories are a mixture of talking heads, interviews and presentations as the boys reflect on aspects and experiences of their life, culture and aspirations."


The participants hail from both Scotch College and Camberwell Grammar and the project will be launched in 2020.

The Healesville Indigenous Community Services Association were successfully granted funds from KWT to fit out a cafe at their Community Centre, and are already using the chairs and tables to catch the tourist trade, while they plan for future renovations.

Anne Jenkins, the Manager of HICSA said the community is wasting no time making the equipment available for community use;

"We use the equipment regularly at our other programs, events and meetings.  Community members love having cuppa chinos, hot choc and the like made for them by our Tourism students as they wait to access services or attend meetings and events.   Most recent one being our Gambling Awareness Week event that we held on the 11th of October. Tables and chairs are also used on the deck (now that the weather is much nicer) for community while they wait to access the Tucker Bag program on a Friday. "
