The Arts - The kwaYa Cross-Cultural Connections Program fosters, promotes and generates cross cultural partnerships between non Indigenous Australian singers, Australian indigenous groups and indigenous communities abroad. 
The arts program aims to: 
  • boost widespread active community participation
  • focus on skills development for emerging artists 
  • advance cultural diversity and preserve cultural heritage 

Our rationale is to afford opportunities that strengthen and develop cultures and encourage social inclusion. 
Benevolence - Kwaya provides unique opportunities enabling non indigenous and indigenous communities to unite and work together on projects that make a real difference to the lives of disadvantaged women and children in remote areas in Australia and abroad.
