Djeran Day

Imagined Future’s Djeran Cultural Connections Day, was a special event connecting Aboriginal kids in care with family, community and culture. The event brought together 58 children in care and their families and carers and local service providers.

It was an emotional day, with some children meeting their siblings for the first time, but above all it was a chance for kids to be kids and celebrate their proud cultural heritage with dancing, art, games and more thanks to the Stephen Michael Foundation Ltd.

Thank you to Uncle Gerrard Shaw for the Welcome to Country, to Tim Kelly and his family for sharing Dreamtime stories and getting us up and dancing and to Neami National and the Department of Communities WA for making this wonderful initiative happen.

The Cultural Connections Days are an ongoing opportunity for Aboriginal children in care to connect to culture, family and community in the South West Metro region.
