Educational Experience’s Boolarng programme aims to connect Indigenous culture with the wider community through genuine, shareable teaching stories.
Boolarng has been named after the Worimi word for ‘together’ and represents Educational Experience’s commitment to a collaborative approach in fostering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural awareness, understanding and respect.
Our range of Boolarng resources have been developed to engage with communities across Australia to develop authentic resources. We are proud to be continually connecting with new networks of Indigenous partners to build and strengthen cultural competence within our learning communities.
Meet our Boolarng Artists
Kristy is a proud Worimi woman, a gifted self-taught artist and full-time mother of twin boys. Her connection with the land is deeply personal, having served on the board of the Worimi Conservation Lands and playing an active role in the development of the community through the Worimi Land Council. She has expressed herself through her art and dance since high school, and Kristy is now focused on sharing the stories of the Worimi people, one of the largest on-country families in Australia.
Garry is a proud Aboriginal man of Dharawal, Bedjigal and Dhungutti descent. He grew up in Sydney's Eastern suburbs in Botany and was raised amongst the Aboriginal community of La Perouse. Garry has always had a creative passion and was a musician for many years prior to finding his love for painting after he moved to the Central Coast with his wife and 3 sons in 2013. His style is a more modern take on traditional Aboriginal art, steering away from the common dreamtime stories and focusing on his own personal journey, experiences and social issues that push creative boundaries as he stretches the limits of what Aboriginal art can be.
