PLACE TO CREATE & LINK
The Girrawaa and Nurra Warra Umer Creative Work Centres were established to
provide Aboriginal inmates with a balance of cultural and vocational work place
and business management skills. Our greatest hope is that inmates will acquire
skills that will contribute to their economic independence and successful return
to the community upon release. G
Aboriginal inmates in the Creative Work Centres produce a range of
Indigenous artefact and craft items for sale. The Centres can also create art
and craft work to meet specific requirements. These can be developed for use in
company promotions, presentations, awards and special events. The quality of
work is exceptional as reiterated by Aboriginal artists who visit the Creative
Work Centres to conduct art classes or talk to the inmates.
Proceeds from the sale of artwork is used to remunerate the
indigenous craftsmen and fund the offender development programs for them. For
