Working and learning with first peoples of Australia in the creative artsFirst people’s service learning

Griffith University – Curtin University – University of Western Sydney

Building on three years of work in Central and Western Australia, this Office for Learning and Teaching funded project took students from three different universities to work with Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities on service learning projects in the arts. These projects involved students working alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and Elders on community-led projects such as recording and writing albums, journalistic writing, documenting cultural activities, managing community festivals, and running school programs.
