2016 Culture 2.0 | Respect Yourself Respect Your Culture Kimberley Workshops Tour
After a successful pilot program in 2013, Yirra Yaakin was branching out into the Kimberley region with the 2016 Culture 2.0 | Respect Yourself Respect Your Culture Kimberley Workshops Tour. The program is a series of free workshop incursions that travelled to schools in Kimberley Region from the 8th June – 1st July 2016. Through these workshops, Culture 2.0 Respect Yourself, Respect Your Culture enables Yirra Yaakin to engage with both the Aboriginal history and theatre studies curriculum requirements in schools, while also offering unique performance creation opportunities & outcomes.
“they don’t normally want to be a part of anything but they practically run down to you” (Leinster Primary School teacher)
The inspiration behind this project is to tell a story about culture in it’s many forms, from traditional culture to the myriad of modern subcultures. We want this program to be relevant and accessible to school students in Western Australia and we continue to seek as much input from the students as we can. At its core, the Yirra Yaakin Culture 2.0 | Respect Yourself Respect Your Culture project is a workshop program providing meaningful engagement, dialogue and cultural exchange with students in regional areas.
