DAD Program

Didge, Art and Dance Program for Males

Cultural Healing for Men

The DAD Program was developed to facilitate a healing program that ensures cultural connection and kinship between fathers and sons. Within the school environment or outside the school environment, the DAD program aims to create a support network between males and nurturing those relationships. Gumaraa staff want to ensure cultural traditions remain alive by sharing knowledges to further enhance the respect of our culture. The activities in the DAD Program include; Didgeridoo making, painting and playing, and traditional dance. This program is also a tool to instil self confidence and belonging as our ‘help a brother’ time is aimed at coming together and supporting each other.

Each DAD participant receives a blank didgeridoo and over a period of 8 weeks will transform the didge into their own musical story connecting the people, the didge and the story. The DAD Program is available for all ages.

How it Works

Each DAD participant receives a blank didgeridoo and over a period of 8 weeks will transform the didge into their own musical story – connecting the people to the didge and the story. Our DAD Program can be tailored to participants’ budget and is timed to suit participants.

Values

This program aims to teach students, parents and the community about the 5 R’s of the culture – respect, reconciliation, resilience, responsibility and reciprocity.

What Will You Learn?

Over the 8 week period, you will learn about the didge and its meaning and its significance. You will also learn circular breathing techniques, bees wax for the didge and about symbols for when you paint your didge!
