Weave Arts Centre is a not-for-profit organisation and has established itself as a cultural focal point within the Redfern and Waterloo area. Our mission is to promote public awareness, understanding and appreciation of outsider art and Indigenous Art to the wider community, through a program of education, exhibition, collecting and publishing. We define ‘outsider art’ as work of artists who demonstrate little influence from the mainstream art world and who instead are motivated by their unique personal visions. This includes what is known as art brut, non-traditional folk art, self-taught art and visionary art. Working in partnership with local community art centres, Mental Health Services, Dept. of Juvenile Justice, Missenden and Concord Hospital and developing digital stories with Inspire Foundation, we will endeavour to present a variety of engaging cultural and visual art exhibitions.
Weave Youth & Community Services was the recipient of a two-year funding grant by the Healing Foundation in July 2012 to run projects addressing trauma and recovery. The aim of the project was to work with women in our community to address generational trauma and the impact it has on the emotional well-being of our Indigenous people through respectful and culturally safe conversations and activities. The focus of the projects was to develop resilience and recovery in the anticipation that we can move forward to a healthier future.

Many young people face barriers and challenges when it comes to obtaining a driver’s licence. Not having a licence can be a major set-back in a young person’s life, making it harder to find employment and holding them back from educational and social opportunities.
