Banmirra Arts holds a Memorandum of Understanding with key partner, Amanda Reynolds of Stella Stories. Amanda is a storyteller, curator, evaluator, documenter and researcher.

In 2014 a new partnership formed with Melissa Harrison of SCP Consulting, and both organisations will work together in 2015 to deliver cultural revival programs through a Department of Justice Grant.


Banmirra Arts received funding from the Myer Foundation for the ‘Nga Woka, Woka Ngarin (I am the land the land is me) exhibition at the Melbourne Museum in 2008

In 2011 Art Victoria’s Creation program funded the ‘Possum Skin Cloak in a Museum’project. Banmirra worked in collaboration with Khadija La Corrall to make a multi-media art installation.

The Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Healing Foundation Possum Skin Cloak Healing workshop 2.5 year project ended on 30 June 2013.  This funding enabled Banmirra Arts to deliver possum skin cloak healing workshops across South-eastern Australia in Victoria, South Australia, New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory.

In 2012-13 the Department of Regional Australia, Local Government, Arts and Sports through the Office of the Arts funded possum skin cloak healing workshops with Kamilaroi Nation in Gunnedah and with Latje Latje people in Mildura.

In 2013-2016, through the Ministry of the Arts Indigenous Culture Support Program, Banmirra Arts received triennial funding for cultural revival and cultural maintenance projects. To date, possum skin cloaking healing workshops have been delivered with the Gundungurra, Boandik, Ulladulla and Gunditjmara people.
