Culture and Well-being
Did you Know? Humans are cultural beings. And our well-being is positively impacted when we develop a sense of belonging and connection to our cultural practices (abs.gov.au, 2021). Australia is home to one of the oldest cultures in the world, the first nations people. As Traditional Custodians of this land, they have always known and nurtured the importance of connections to land, sea and community. Art and storytelling have been an integral way of life in this land to pass on cultural wisdom to future generations.
In a multicultural society like Australia, Culture can be a complex idea to define. As a beneficiary of the generosity offered by the Custodians, on whose land Mindkshetra stands and operates, Rupa is passionate about advocating cultural competence's role in supporting their wellbeing.
At Mindkshetra, we aim to educate adolescents, young people, and adults to engage in cultural art practices for well-being benefits and to develop, acknowledge and foster cultural awareness and appreciation of the wisdom various cultural practices offer.
The conceptual idea behind creating Culturally Creative I am to create a hub where Cultural Art Practitioners can pass on their wisdom to the community members by teaching traditional art making and story-telling. It was also designed to promote and connect local Cultural artists within the community and showcase their work.
