RARE EARTH ARTS

Indigenous art is symbiotically connected with the Dreaming and culture. Rare Earth Arts supports artists and family groups to travel onto country to keep a strong connection to the Tjukulpa (dreamtime) and collect materials for traditional Punu art. These trips to country inspire artists to continue painting their dreaming stories, our living cultural heritage. All proceeds from Rare Earth Arts will help keep the dreamtime stories alive.

Testimonials

Rare Bikes


Aurukun Probation & Parole Officer

Aurukun community experienced significant and direct benefits as a result of this project: A reduction in community property damage as well as damage to street lights, signs, Pool and the Aurukun School have remained un-vandalised.

Rare Earth supervised Aurukun’s young, at risk offenders subject to Community Service. I have seen how the program has positively effected not only the individuals involved, many of them young offender’s subject to Community Based Orders, but also the families of Aurukun, allowing them to reconnect on a positive social level.

Media Programs


Apatula School Principal NT

There has been a considerable improvement in the average attendance at school from an average of 63% in December to 78% in June with the Youth Program being a significant contributing factor to this result.

Rare Earth demonstrated a deep empathy for all community members working quickly to establish relationships with students and their families.

Their culturally appropriate demeanour and operation allowed them to quickly gain confidence of the community and begin making a difference within short time.



Social Enterprise


UNLTD Sydney Fundraiser
To create organisational sustainability Rare Earth Foundation has moved away from the traditional charitable model that relies heavily on government funding and donations to social enterprise. www.rareearthoils.com

100% of profits from Rare Earth Oils go to the Rare Earth Foundation to continue community projects.

By creating partnerships with Aboriginal entrepreneurs, NGO’s and corporations they hope to create trans-generational change through enterprise in order to provide young people culturally relevant training, business experience and employment pathways.

Services

Elders have shown us there is a direct link between the cultural health of a community and the emotional, social health of its youth. Using media to engage young people; Rare Earth works with elders to strengthen culture, language and self-esteem.
