Description
Red Sand Culture is a Hip Hop Music and Dance mentoring project delivered by Incite Arts Inc. in partnership with the Warlpiri Youth Development Aboriginal Corporation (WYDAC- Mt Theo Program).

Experienced artists who specialise in Hip Hop Music and/or Dance conduct workshops in the remote Warlpiri communities of Yuendumu, Lajamanu, Nyirrpi and Willowra.

Strong trust relationships are developed between the artists and workshop participants, fostering ongoing program participation and the consistent creation of new songs and dances reflecting the lives, experiences, feelings and thoughts of these young people as they negotiate their way between two worlds.

Red Sand Culture has its own dedicated website and has produced and released two compilation CD's, Red Sand Culture Volume I & II which are a culmination of five year's of songs; all conceived, developed and recorded as part of the project.

This project receives funding through: Tim Fairfax Family Foundation; the Australian Government, Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet through the Aboriginals Benefit Account; Australia Council for the Arts, assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body; and is proudly sponsored by the Northern Territory Government.
