Nyikina Cultural Centre

The Project is a model of best practice for improving remote Indigenous life outcomes by providing cultural solutions to promoting social harmony and creating real employment through sustainable cultural industries such as tourism, land care and cultural education.

The Project is a natural and essential development for improving and sustaining social, cultural and economic outcomes of Indigenous people and others in the West Kimberley Region.

It has wide support from various levels of government, business and community interests.

Soul Veg

I want to establish Soulveg as the most innovative and delicious vegetarian restaurant around and show people how much variety and flavour our food has to offer.

The Shine Training Restaurant

The Shine Training Restaurant, will be situated in the town of Sarina in Central Queensland. The concept behind The Shine Training Restaurant, came from my own desire to have a successful small business and to give opportunities to my local indigenous population that were severely lacking. I am a proud indigenous male and I want to give my deadly brothers and sisters, the chance to do something that gives them some self-esteem and self-belief, something they have been told for many years they aren't allowed to have.

Ricky Scott

I came to the Pilbara in 1998 from Queensland and this is where I am still living today.<p>

I studied Aboriginal law in Roebourne in 2001.<p>

At the beginning of 2002 I came to the Bujee-Nhoorr-Pu studio in Cossack to help with the ongoing establishment of the Art Gallery. It was then that I realized art was a big interest in my life.<p>

I developed skills along the way and I feel I have a good eye for art. Im very enthusiastic in my work.<p>

Leanne Allan

I was born in Roebourne where I am still living today. My Tribe is the Yindjibarndi Tribe.<p>

I have been involved with art since 2002, but I have always been interested since I was a young child.<p>

What got me painting was browsing through other peoples work.<p>

I enjoy drawing as well as painting, but painting I enjoy the most.<p>

I like to experiment with different techniques rather than stick to the same pattern.<p>
