We collaborate with artists and creators working from a variety of mediums at the emerging, intermediate and senior levels, including: diverse Indigenous and Intercultural communities, arts and community organisations. Our growing village of artist alumni is generative and generous – passionate about co-creating from a place of authenticity, curiosity and integrity.
We are diverse in practice, ancestry and creative process, united in our desire to authentically connect with and find joy in our creative and cultural inheritances through a dynamic, collaborative, embodied process that is centred around the principle of a village spiral.
I am forever thankful to Diane Roberts and The Arrival Personal Legacy Process. It has transformed my artistic practice and who I am today. The process allowed me to dig deep, connect to my ancestors and the trauma they experienced but also connect to a community of talented artists who are on the same journey. More than ever, I feel empowered to explore and write fearlessly.

The Arrivals process speaks strongly to much larger conversations today. It makes us look at our history and understand some of the brokenness of today. It’s hard to walk through life with that nagging feeling that a piece of you isn’t there, that you are not complete and have no idea what is missing.
