The Wake Up Time Project

The project creates a safe environment for women who may be subject to domestic violence and drug and alcohol abuse to participate in traditional craft making and learn about food nutrition.


The Wake Up Time project is for socially disadvantaged, unemployed Indigenous women in the town of Casino. It was suggested by The Aboriginal Medical Service, to address the chronic social problems faced by local Indigenous women. The project provides a supportive environment for women to be among peers and develop their interpersonal skills, and to give women vocational skills which result in economic benefits by selling their craft items.
