HOOP DREAMS IN THE NT - YIRRKALA
Creating a strong sense of community
In 2022 House of Darwin launched Hoop Dreams. An initiative focused on refurbishing basketball courts located in the remote communities of the Northern Territory.
Basketball courts are a platform for health, dance, and wellbeing for the wider community. A central point that’s vital in bringing people together. House of Darwin have refurbished three basketball courts with murals designed by the community, for the community. A way for the youth to see how their thoughts and creativity can directly affect their environment. Our program aims to create long lasting pride and unity in Indigenous communities.
