Ngwala Youth Gathering (Road Safety)
Amber Community was honoured to join a fantastic evening at Barrbunin Beek Aboriginal Gathering Place with the Ngwala Youth Gathering for a road safety session in late 2023. Youth, elders, parents, guardians, and community leaders were there to learn and grow. Ceremonial dancers set the stage, inspiring everyone. Artwork was created, and a delicious dinner was shared. A memorable night, deepening our understanding of road trauma and the importance of road safety. Special thanks to Karen, our lived experience volunteer, for sharing her road trauma story. Watch the video below.
