Dreamy is a collection of sleep stories created by First Nations storytellers. These soothing tales will help people of all walks of life to quiet their minds, connect with our land, and drift off into dream. First Nations people are the original storytellers.
We are growing a network of diverse First Nations writers, creatives and storytellers who we pay to collaborate on projects and content. We provide spaces for individuals and collectives to determine the stories shared through this platform, from their own voice.
The First Nations Bedtime Stories is a key project from Common Ground, designed to maintain and strengthen First Nations cultures. Each year we work with First Nations Elders and knowledge custodians to share non-secret Dreaming stories with the next generation of Australians through short films.
Facing the Numbers explores the human stories behind the statistics of First Nations disadvantage in the criminal justice system. We are working with First Nations filmmakers to share the stories of individuals and families. Facing the Numbers is a systemic advocacy campaign and we are collaborating with First Nations justice organisations to drive meaningful action. Watch this space!
