2016-17 saw Creative Tracks committed to extending its fee-for-service offering. We worked with a variety of organisations to deliver creative outcomes for young people and adults alike. Some of our fee-for-service work has included;

Cherbourg saw the creation of a White Ribbon Day song and music video that brought young people and their Elders together to spread the message to speak out against family and domestic violence.

 

In Logan, our young people created a large-scale outdoor mural at the Beenleigh PCYC and submitted a short video documenting the process for submission in the Hear Me, See Me art exhibition, hosted by the Queensland Family and Child Commission.

 

In Woorabinda, we partnered with Wadja Wadja State High School delivering Creative Tracks workshops as part of their arts and culture curriculum. Meanwhile in Hopevale, our young people created a music and dance performance that was performed at the Discovery Festival in Cooktown. This was a significant performance for the community, as it was the first time an Aboriginal perspective and voice was included in the festival.

 

In total, Creative Tracks delivered 190 workshops, 34 artforms and 7 events, with over 3020 attendees. We employed 48 Indigenous artsworkers and partnered with 36 different agencies. Most importantly, significant social outcomes are emerging for our participants. Elders and young people are reconnecting, and reigniting strong, intergenerational relationships.

 

This in turn is increasing our young people’s confidence, where they are now seeking new cultural opportunities, further education and employment avenues. We have also seen a diversion from social issues through the role modelling provided by our artsworkers, improved artistic skills and greater community participation.

Creative Tracks had a rich and productive year. Our communities in Cherbourg, Hopevale, Logan and Woorabinda saw continued growth in participation and partnerships leading to some fantastic creative outcomes and positive impacts across participants and communities.

We are continuing to develop our evaluation processes with the assistance of Culture Counts and Arts Queensland to better understand the social and long term impacts on communities as we continue to grow our business model and strategic plan.

Over the coming year Creative Tracks is further developing its strategic and program positioning in preparation for our next funding cycle.


 

Over the past year, Human has been keen to develop and launch a new community program.  After consulting with communities, liaising with current and new partners and developing a detailed strategic business plan, we are now seeking funding to launch this much needed program, Tucker TV. 

This is a video and digital media program that will work with young Indigenous Australians to address the challenge of poor nutrition and promote healthy eating choices. The program will teach young Indigenous Australians in outer urban and regional communities how to create video content about healthy food choices, which will be professionally edited and programmed into an “on demand” TV show for promotion in Indigenous communities through broadcast partners. 

 

Tucker TV will work with young people to make video content that promotes healthy food choices, including:

 

  • Short videos promoting the benefits of healthy living

  • Interviews with local and national heroes promoting healthy eating

  • Music video clips that promote nutrition, the risks of substance abuse and the importance of respecting your body

  • How to cook videos - presented by young people

  • Animated menus and shopping lists

  • ‘Advertisements’ for nutritious food, and

  • Bush tucker information

Human Ventures is very proud to have developed and delivered a number of community programs over the past many years, our two current programs being Creative Tracks and Tucker TV. These programs offer invaluable opportunities for young, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to engage in creative projects that improve confidence, wellbeing and life skills.



Creative Tracks is a creative skills development program that creates a forum for young people to share stories, yarn about current issues, learn new skills, celebrate culture and contribute to building stronger communities, while Tucker TV is a video and digital media program working with young people to address the challenge of poor nutrition and strategically promote healthy eating choices. 

 

We are proud to have had the opportunity to partner with some fantastic organisations over the past year, but most importantly to have inspired so may young people to reach their full potential.






 
We feel that our youth of Hopevale have experienced a vast and wide range of modes of preserving cultural knowledge and expanding their performances at a level we feel we would have not achieved if not for Creative Tracks. We appreciate the services Creative Tracks has provided to our community and we hope they can continue to assist our youth development into the future.

 I loved the Cultural Concert you put together last year and we had great feedback from the community.

 Having previously worked with Creative Tracks we are aware of the good work they do and the effort they put into establishing stronger communities, we are also aware of the positive outcomes of their program delivery.
