Pathways To Dreaming is designed to engage Year 8 to 12 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in education.
They take part in academic and Aboriginal cultural enrichment workshops at the University and the cohort at each school devises and implements a group project, with mentors facilitating that process. At the end of each year there is a celebratory event where the group projects are showcased.
The program is currently running in 30 South-Western and Western Sydney high schools in the Campbelltown, Liverpool, Penrith, Fairfield, Blacktown and Blue Mountains areas.
Lyndsay Urquhart ran three poetry and dance workshops in the theme of Poetry in First Languages to creatively engage the students in cultural strengthening.
