Theatre Kimberley Incorporated

Very Remote Aboriginal Youth Performing Arts Programs

The isolated Kimberley region of Western Australia covers a massive area of over 400,000 sq km, yet it has a sparse population of only 39,000 people. Nearly a third of the population is Indigenous and there are over 100 Aboriginal communities of various sizes scattered throughout the region. In being so remote, in many ways the Kimberley is still like the Wild West. Many things that people take for granted - supplies, power, running water, access - can be hard to come by here. The same goes for skills, resources and opportunities. Theatre Kimberley seeks to address this by bringing self and community affirming programs to those who are disadvantaged and under-represented by their remoteness.

During the last 10 years Theatre Kimberley has delivered a series of custom, mobile programs right into the heart of the Kimberley to very remote Aboriginal youth and communities. Valuable and highly transferable life skills are learned through our extensive arts programs that model community engagement, respect, collaboration, problem solving, discipline and creative application of learned skills.

Theatre Kimberley is excellently placed to continue to provide resources and programs to regional and remote Indigenous youth and communities. Theatre Kimberley provides a catalyst and fertile ground for isolated Aboriginal participants to develop life skills, creative processes and eventually, if they desire, a professional attitude towards their creative practice. We try as much as possible to continually revisit communities so that rapport is further developed and strengthened.

Many of the remote communities we partner with can only afford access to these programs if they are subsidised. We seek supporters from all areas so that we can extend our programs to as many of the communities that request them as possible. Our outreach program is in high demand and we strive to deliver to each of these potential partners.
