    Summary Information:
    The Yalata 'Yalata Women's Art Project' Shared Responsibility Agreement (SRA) was developed between the Commonwealth Government, the Government of South Australia and the Yalata Indigenous Community on 9 December 2005.

    The SRA aims to improve the amenity of the Yalata Women's Centre, develop the art and craft skills of the women in the Yalata Women's Group, and identify ways to strengthen the Yalata Women's Group.

    Shared Responsibility Agreements are agreements between governments and Indigenous communities to provide discretionary funding in return for community obligations. The new arrangements developed from an initiative of the Council of Australian Governments and replace the previous ATSIC system of funding. For more information see 'Shared Responsibility Agreement' below.
    Detailed Information:
    Purpose

    The purpose of this SRA is to refurbish the Yalata Women's Centre, as a meeting place for the Yalata Women's Group, and to develop the arts and craft skills of the women in the group so that they can produce works for sale. The SRA will also identify other ways to rejuvenate the women's group. It is anticipated that providing a place for the women to meet will foster leadership, pride, purpose, skills and knowledge to transfer to the youth of the community.

    Shared Responsibilities

    The Yalata Indigenous Community will clean and paint the Yalata Women's Centre, assist with exhibitions, workshops and an outreach camp, provide accommodation for the community arts facilitator, and help to identify ways to rejuvenate the Yalata Women's Group.

    Families and individuals will participate in arts and crafts workshops, attend an outreach camp, support the women by involving the children in the project, attend exhibitions at the Yalata Women's Centre and the Ceduna Arts and Cultural Centre and contribute to planning for the development of the Yalata Women's Centre.

    The Commonwealth Government, through the Office of Indigenous Policy Coordination (OIPC) proposes to provide $6,850 for catering. It will also provide $8,000 through the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations (DEWR) for improvements to the Yalata Women's Centre and $9,650 through the Department of Communications, Information Technology and the Arts (DCITA) for materials and for the salary and travel expenses of the community arts facilitator. In addition, the South Australian Government, through Country Arts SA, proposes to provide $1,500 for the salary and travel expenses of the community arts facilitator.

    This funding is subject to the partners entering into a legally binding funding agreement.

    Performance Indicators

    The Project Facilitator is to report once on the numbers in attendance at the outreach camp, the workshops and participating in the renovation. The community is to report once on the numbers using their skills for art enterprises. The coordinator of the Yalata Women's Group is to report quarterly on the success at reactivating the group.
