Over the next few months, we are working to grow Culture across our whole organisation and in everything we do.
This is the way our Ancestors would have wanted us to when they built the organisation for their children, grandchildren and community.
What do you want to see at GEGAC, when you visit our buildings, land, services, staff and gatherings?
What do you, our Elders, Young People, community, members and staff want to feel, smell, taste, hear, touch?
Our traditional music, smoking ceremonies, possum skins, cultural healing and practices, cook-ups in our community fire meeting place, locally supplied cultural resources available in programs and services?
