Artistic excellence, self empowerment, community and culture.

The Creative Tracks program works within the communities of Cherbourg, Woorabinda, Logan and Hope Vale to develop skills in dance, singing, music, video production and leadership. The program builds stronger communities, develops young people’s confidence and provides career pathways.

Workshops in dance, singing, songwriting, music-making, mc’ing, film, visual art, and creative writing are delivered in each community throughout the year. Young people participate in the workshops alongside professionals in the industry to create performance pieces and installations for their own community.

The program encourages the development of local talent, and builds young people’s confidence to participate in other community events.

Creative Tracks can also provide a platform to document local stories, foster participation in events outside their community and identify education, leadership and career pathways .The workshops also encourage the development of a forum for young people to share stories, yarn about current issues, learn new skills, celebrate culture and contribute in building stronger communities.

Creative Tracks works through arts and cultural expression to encourage leadership, confidence and community building outcomes for young people.

The program is coordinated by Human Ventures in partnership with a range of organisations such as Aboriginal Councils, youth support agencies, schools, parents, service providers, community members, Elders and young people in each community.

Creative Tracks receives financial assistance from the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation.

We would like to acknowledge and thank the Elders,Young people and community crews of Logan, Woorabinda, Cherbourg and Hopevale.

Previously….Stylin’Up Regional

The Stylin’ UP Regional program was a community and cultural development program that originated from and was linked into the annual Stylin’ UP Festival hosted by the Inala community in Brisbane. Stylin’Up is Australia’s largest Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Hip Hop and RnB event. Both the Program and Festival were inspired by the vision of Pride in Self, Pride in Community, Pride in Culture.

Stylin’ UP Regional was delivered in Cherbourg, Hope Vale, Woorabinda and Logan between 2005 and 2010 and worked with approximately 800 young people, community members and Elders across the communities.
