Welcome to Mount Druitt, postcode 2770.
This richly diverse community in the heart of Western Sydney is strong, fierce and determined to show ChangeFest participants some of the remarkable stories from people who call Mount Druitt home.
ChangeFest is being hosted at Kimberwalli, meaning ‘many stars’ in Darug language. The name honours Aboriginal language and recognises the role of stars in Aboriginal storytelling and learning, navigating country and following lore to sustain culture and well-being. The name also recognises young Aboriginal people can be the stars of their own destiny. This unique initiative will support young Aboriginal people in Western Sydney to transition from school to education and/or further employment.
Kimberwalli will walk alongside young Aboriginal people as they navigate their future.
Kimberwalli is opening soon and ChangeFest 19 will be one of the first major events on site. ChangeFest participants will also have opportunities to attend events in other venues in Mount Druitt to learn more about this remarkable community.
Kimberwalli is located on Darug country on the site of the old Whalan High School at 1 Mimika Avenue, Whalan. https://mapcarta.com/28698488/Map
