WHO WE ARE

All our efforts deepen young people’s experiences of culture as protection through thoughtfully designed, simple to access and easy to use policies, projects, resources and campaigns.

We join together with others to create meaningful lives for all our young people with a special emphasis on those experiencing vulnerability and who are at risk of self-harm and suicide.

OUR VISION

All Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people are proud custodians of the oldest living culture on Earth and have opportunities to connect, contribute and thrive in Australia and the world.

OUR PURPOSE

Culture is Life supports young people to deepen their connection to culture, Country and community, contributes to global knowledge and positively impacts the health and wellbeing of this and future generations.

OUR STRATEGY

Culture is Life supports and promotes Aboriginal and Torres Islander led solutions to affirm and strengthen culture and to prevent youth suicide. Our Theory Of Change and Outcomes Framework underpins everything we do.

THE BOARD

Proudly Aboriginal led, our Board has a majority Aboriginal membership with a wealth of experience in leading and influencing social change.

THE TEAM

We’re a team with creativity, determination and focus who back our mob to catalyse and mobilise positive change.
