Catapult is committed to providing workshops for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander primary & Secondary students in our schools

We can tailor a workshop or series of workshops in your school that will meet the needs of your students!

Our  programming, has been developed with a commitment to Aboriginal choreographers, composers, multi-disciplinary & young artists: acknowledging & respecting cultural leadership & protocols.

Our  programs with schools/communities; designed with best practice cultural protocol aligning with the NSW Aboriginal Education Policy.

Catapult only engages/employs Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander artists to lead/teach & choreograph these workshops & intensive programs in schools/community guiding & mentoring participants on:

  • Respecting cultural traditions & customs in regards to: dance, song, materials, & language.
  • The appropriate use of terminology to represent Aboriginal people & their communities.
  • Acknowledging the diversity of Aboriginal communities engaged in projects.

Through this, we ensure that all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, engaged in Catapult’s programs, have the right to self-determination in their cultural affairs & expression of cultural material.
