13047999_10153447007891811_8719497088015843985_oAfrobeat: An Australian Story is an artistic approach to the writing of a significant chapter in the history of African Australia, through multiple art forms.

Afrobeat is a long-term initiative and this application focuses on the first stage that involves photography, video, writing, music, poetry and a unique approach to reconciliation and to belonging, through cultural exchange between Aboriginal and African Australians.

The first stage of Afrobeat will involve young people, Indigenous Elders, professional and emerging artists and will span 18 months.

This initiative will form a comprehensive body of work that will build a solid foundation of knowledge and expression for these communities, in turn creating new directions for many African Australians and future generations.
