Shooting Stars's Campaigns

Art with the Stars

24 Jun 2021 - 31 Dec 2021

Through the Art with the Stars Project, Shooting Stars uses arts-based research methods to evaluate the program. This form of research was chosen as art making is a fundamental part of Indigenous ways of being, knowing, and doing.

Local Aboriginal artists are invited, and paid, to work with participants, teaching them skills and developing an artwork or performance together. Participants and the artist work together on the subject, but it will speak to the topic of understanding the participant’s cultural, Aboriginal and local identities.

By providing Shooting Stars participants access to Aboriginal artists, we not only teach them a skill, but rather provide them with a space and a means to connect with themselves, their communities, and their country.

Once completed, the artwork or performance will be exhibited at a local level. From there, possibilities for the work(s) to be exhibited at regional, state and interstate contexts will be explored.

Artworks and performances will be used alongside yarning circles as data to explore participant attitudes toward their Aboriginality and cultural/local identities.

Black Diamonds

24 Jun 2021 - 31 Dec 2021

The first of its kind, the Black Diamonds Project will review netball service delivery and ensure that policies and systems of netball in Western Australia are transformed to better facilitate the engagement and retention of Aboriginal people to the sport of netball.

The aims of the project are to:

  1. De-centre the white Australian experience within netball across Western Australia and decolonise netball delivery.

  2. Increase the number of Aboriginal people who play, coach, umpire, administer, and support the sport of netball from grassroots through to the elite in Western Australia.

  3. Netball WA to become a leader in collaboration and engagement between state/national sporting bodies and their Aboriginal communities.

The Black Diamonds Project research design and methodological framework are predominantly based on Indigenous principles and practices, and grounded in relatedness theory, while combining Indigenous and non-Indigenous data collection and processing methods. This research will comprise three phases of data collection and analysis across four stakeholder groups: Grassroots Participants, Potential Elite Pathway Participants, Existing Elite Pathway Participants and Netball WA Clubs and Associations.

Seven Sisters

24 Jun 2021 - 31 Dec 2021

The Seven Sisters program will provide Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls and women with opportunities to develop positive social and emotional wellbeing skills and preventative mental health strategies, which will enable them to respond and adapt to emerging challenges as they process through the life course.

Over the 10- week program, participants will learn how to recognise and name their emotions, they will develop strategies for cheering themselves up or calming down. As well as developing emotional regulation in situations, the participants will also learn how to develop and build healthy relationships both on and off the court.

The program has been developed in line with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives of social and emotional health – which applies a holistic model of connection to seven different spheres of life: culture, land, physical self, mental self, community, family/kinship and ancestors/spirituality. Characters were designed to reflect these spheres to allow participants to affiliate and connect with at least one character.

The program finishes with a community netball match event, open to families and the wider community to support the participants. The event is also an opportunity for local Aboriginal health service providers to engage with the participants and build connections.

The Seven Sisters program was successfully piloted in Narrogin in 2020, and has now been implemented across all Shooting Stars sites with our Year 5 & 6 students. 2022 will see the Seven Sisters program adapted for high school students and rolled out across the Shooting Stars sites.

Sparks and Pathways

24 Jun 2021 - 31 Dec 2021

Empowering young Aboriginal girls and women to make informed choices about their future is at the core of Shooting Stars. With the support of Horizon Power, Shooting Stars was able to implement a Sparks and Pathways Program in 2021.

This program aims to support participants on their education journey, helping them to identify and develop their spark and passions in years 8-10, and then in years 11-12 to prepare participants for their post-school journey by identifying and developing their post-school education and employment pathways.
