HELPING HOOPS Helping Hoops Sunshine Helping Hoops uses basketball to bring young people from a multitude of cultures together in a free weekly basketball and life-skills training program. The program, aimed at young people from a refugee and multicultural background living in the western suburbs of Melbourne, builds trust, promotes social inclusion, develops teamwork skills and encourages young people to complete their education. “I like basketball because it helps me feel free and gets me out of whatever I’m going through.” MOHAMED, 16. ILBIJERRI THEATRE COMPANY TANDERRUM Dance Workshops TANDERRUM is a celebration and spiritual gathering of the five communities that make up the Kulin nation, the traditional owners of much of south-eastern Victoria, including Melbourne. TANDERRUM formed the official opening of the 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 Melbourne Festival. Combining dance, music, performance, traditional language and storytelling with cultural traditions that stretch back more than 40,000 years, TANDERRUM celebrates the culture of the land’s traditional owners and welcomes people to country. Led by elders and Indigenous dancers, the dance workshops trained members of each Kulin nation in their traditional dance in the lead up to the TANDERRUM. The workshops also taught young people traditional language and song and helped connect young people with their elders, community and cultural heritage. In 2016, about 75 Indigenous Victorians between the ages of 11-18 participated in the dance workshops and in the TANDERRUM ceremony. Helping Hoops Ilbijerri Theatre Company
