Throughout the year, Bangarra offers performances for schools in selected venues across Australia, with post-performance 'In Conversation' sessions wherever possible. This experience allows students to deepen their connection with the company and learn about the artistic process, as well as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.

Wilay is the Wiradjuri word for Brushtail Possum, given to us by Uncle Stan Grant Senior. Bangarra’s Wilay program enables us to connect with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander school students through our performances and by providing accessible tickets and behind-the-scenes access to our dancers and creatives.
Wilay allows us to build a relationship with the next generation of those who share the rich culture and history that is sewn through our storytelling. It is important to pass these stories down.
The Wilay program has concluded for 2019. Stay tuned for our 2020 program.
