Walk A While Foundation.
Empowering the creativity of this community.
Educational outcomes are central to the objectives of Walk a While Foundation (WaW) who have invested in the creation of Memory Mountain Limited (MML) due to its alignment with the foundations cultural mission.
There are three key areas of educational development arising from the inter-connected projects that comprise the work of both WaW and MML.
Education: The cross site itself will be a place of learning where both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people can visit and learn about the way in which the Christian message connects with the culture and spirituality of first Australians.
Vocational Training: The whole project provides opportunity for community members to gain vocational skills in areas such as construction, maintenance, landscape management, catering and hospitality.
Creative Media: The WaW Centre in the community provides a springboard for community members to develop film, photography and music skills relevant to connecting with the visitors to the Cross on Memory Mountain.
