Our annual dreams

To take 60-100 youth per year on cultural healing Shields For Living,Tools for Life camps to make traditional tools every year.

To hold day cultural healing camps for the town at-risk youth a day a week at our Desert Knowledge site.

To be in Youth Detention Alice Springs one day a week to deliver traditional tool making.

What we deliver

Through our programs and resources we create spaces for intercultural exchange and understanding.
CASSE respectfully acknowledges the traditional owners and custodians of the lands on which we meet and work.
