CARING FOR CULTURE

We celebrate, recognise and promote Dharug culture through language, art, performance and story telling. We create spaces for Dharug community to continue practicing and learning culture. We remember and celebrate our families and the stories of First Contact that transformed Dharug Nura and Dharug lives. We also treasure our deeper history of connection, belonging and knowing through thousands of years of continued culture. We are proud to share opportunities to learn about Indigenous cultures and continue these traditions and stories.

CARING FOR COMMUNITY

 

DSMG aims to foster strong social and economic foundations for Dharug futures. Our Caring for Community programs will develop a range of economic, training and capacity building opportunities for Dharug people to contribute to the region's wellbeing. We will work constructively to support Dharug community groups, working with others to build recognition and respect of Dharug presence and contributions. As custodians for the BNI Site, we will build community and opportunity through partnerships and projects.

CARING FOR COUNTRY

 

DSMG is responsible for looking after the Blacktown Native Institute site for the Dharug Community. This land is the first of Dharug Nura to return to Dharug ownership. This land is for Dharug people,  a place to connect to Country, culture and community. Our Caring for Country programs will work with community and strategic partners to  support this important place to become a place of healing and belonging by restoring biodiversity, improving water management, revegetation and environmental restoration programs. 

 

LEADERSHIP & GOVERNANCE

Strong governance and a clear strategic vision are the foundation for building DSMG into sustainable Non-Profit Organisation and to continue supporting the Dharug community into the future. We will lead the DSMG with integrity and transparency, developing the company into a long-term community asset that is trusted by the community.
