First on the Ladder

The Polyglot Theatre arts program has been a welcome addition to the Rumbalara Football Netball Club. Together the groups launched a three-year partnership aiming to inspire young people while increasing the visibility of the club within the community. The arts program has added another dimension to the club.

First on the Ladder is an innovative collaboration that uses the tenets of art-making and sport to strengthen cultural pride and community cooperation. Art and sport align; they both call for teamwork, participation, expression of energy, and audiences. They are powerful tools for community engagement, awareness building, advocacy, social change and celebration.

The project aims to strengthen children’s creative capacities and provide new opportunities for cultural exchange, connecting Aboriginal children to their elders, artists and the broader community.
