Aboriginal Diggers Project

The Aboriginal Diggers Project is a significant 3-year project capturing the stories and experiences of Aboriginal servicemen and women who have served in Australia’s Military from the Boer War to the present day through film, theatre and visual arts.  Country Arts SA has worked closely with the Aboriginal Veterans of SA on this project and established the Anzac Brains Trust to help advise on the various aspects, alongside the employment of Creative Producer Lee-Ann Buckskin for the duration of the project. Importantly, the outcome of the overall project is to uncover and give voices to those who have remained silent throughout history for the broader Australian community.

Aboriginal Diggers project has three components, one per year, each with a residency in the SA community of Raukkan.

to enable this fascinating story to be told, we are seeking your generous support to help raise an additional $17,500. This money will be used to undertake the third stage of workshops and rehearsals for the play and finalise the live performances for this historic Australian story.

We need your help to ensure this cross-cultural story is heard by future generations of Australians.



Country Arts SA needs YOU! from Country Arts SA on Vimeo.

Country Arts SA is dedicated to making a REAL difference to the lives of people living and working in regional South Australia.

We are keen to continue to contribute to regional SA’s sense of community by reaching out to those who are not able to access or participate in the arts due to age, disability or financial hardship. And we need your help to make sure we are able to include everyone.

Your donation, big or small, means that all people living in regional areas can enrich their lives culturally, socially and creatively by participating in the arts.

If you would like Country Arts SA to issue a receipt for tax deductible gifts you will need to provide your address and telephone number.
