The Kimberley Culture and Social Innovation Project seeks to tackle Indigenous Youth disadvantage [ages 14-25] by supporting engagement, capacity building, and empowerment in creating and rehabilitating the built and natural environment in 5 remote communities of the Fitzroy Valley [Bayulu, Junjuwa, Yakanarra, Wangkatjungka, Noonkanbah]. It will ensure local community cohesion, leadership and infrastructure development through a co-design process. The project will enhance youth employment, seeking to increase social inclusion and mobility and promote environmental and cultural values. The project puts culture at the centre of design and adopts a participatory and emancipatory approach to community development and capacity building.
