Help fly ‘Our Happy Women’ to the Cairns Indigenous Arts Festival (CIAF) to share culture.

Fundraising for Ngalingah Mijung Dubais (Our Happy Women group), Lismore.

Ngalingah Mijung Dubais (Our Happy Women) is a program that has locally-designed activities that seeks to empower Aboriginal women in Lismore through community development initiatives. Ngalingah Mijung Dubais provides a culturally safe environment for Aboriginal women to nurture, develop and restore community relationships that benefit Jarjums. We utilise art and story-telling to support and empower women to achieve their full potential. The program assists to developing pathways to employment and training, increasing engagement in community events and activities and increasing participant’s sense of belonging and well-being.

Our Happy Women fundraiserThe fundraising effort is to take a group of 15 Aboriginal women to Cairns which will enable them to immerse themselves in the world of Indigenous Arts and Crafts. Our vision is that by visiting the festival, these talented women will be inspired to develop and refine their ideas, skills and dreams and continue to collaborate with arts, education and social enterprise ventures to establish a platform for promoting and selling their work, providing an economic opportunity to create income for all the women and their families.

To support these women on this journey of a lifetime, we are asking people to donate any amount towards the costs of flights, accommodation and festival tickets and would be greatly appreciated with no amount being too small.
