A few words from the Founder...
"Garrijimanha was created to support healing and unity within our nation through collaboration, by sharing culture from many First Nations perspectives and supporting wider Australia in being inclusive of meaningful Indigenous culture within their organisation, projects, and events.
I believe if you are heard, healing walks closely behind. Garrijimanha's collaborative structure provides opportunity for industry professionals nation wide to support our Indigenous creatives and community in sharing their culture.
I also believe in the power to unify through collaboration and how connecting organisations, industry professionals and community together at one place will create meaningful relationships and relevant content to suit and serve the needs of all."
