ABOUT KAPATA DREAMING
Kapata Dreaming was created by Maddy Hodgetts, a Ngiyampaa Wiradjuri artist, with a passion for creating artwork that reflects her culture, her language, her kinship and her Ngurrampaa (country)
Her artwork can depict stories that include cultural morals and values. These stories can teach us about our relationships and obligation to Mother Earth as well as every living and non living thing in the universe. It is important to Maddy, that she continues the practices of our Ancestors and gives back to her Ngurrampaa.
Kapata Dreaming's mission is to share culture through artworks and cultural pieces. Check out some of my mob's cultural groups and organisations to learn more about dance, song and cultural knowledge.
Their mission is to share traditional Aboriginal dance and culture with everyone and empower the youth through mentoring. They share the old ways, connecting to Country with respect through dance and stories.
Dancing has been part of Aboriginal storytelling for thousands of years. Dance is more than an art form, and storytelling is more than entertainment. The stories of the Dreaming are the stories of the lore, teaching people how to live in harmony with each other and the world around them, and instructing people on their individual and collective natural and social responsibilities.
Gurrawin is an Indigenous Organisation that provide cultural experts in Aboriginal Lore and Culture and provide authentic traditional and modern experiences, products and workshops in NSW.
Our mission is to share knowledge for growth in schools and our local communities so they can implement the positive culture into everyday living, creating a more sustainable Australia.
