1. SevGen’s Soulful Work
Reference No: CP000OC
SevGen is a visionary concept that will result in social innovation. Our 3E model is one that works hard for our own social enterprises to fund us. As you might know it takes time to get these ventures in the black so we also need help from our friends/supporters/donors.
By donating to CP000OC you are helping us to keep doing what must be done to make a difference to the outcomes for our nations first peoples and ultimately for all the world. Please donate if you can and remember that all donations over $2 is tax deductible.

2. Modern Songlines
Reference No: CP001MS
In 2014 it was brought to our attention that governmental decisions to close secondary schools in remote Northern Territory communities created a dire need for a creative solution. After intimate joining with elders and community leaders in the communities the Modern Songlines project was ideated and we committed to piloting a community led initiative that was co-founded and developed by Warlpiri leaders and SevGen.
After our 18months pilot period and 10 little mobs later it is being spoken of as Justice, Heatlh and Education Reinvestment.
The Modern Songlines project has a deep message of human permaculture and is the most meaningful project eva. Funds raised will contribute to connecting all to the dreamtime. Please get in touch to know it deeply.
Go to the Modern Songlines Gallery to see our photo album and to read the latest updates.

3. Our Kanyini
Reference No: CP010OK
Kanyini is a Yankunytjatjara (Central Desert) concept of unconditional love, popularised in a 2006 documentary Kanyini.by Kuminjai Uncle Bob Randall a much loved and missed elder, singer and community leader
SevGen references this theory of connectedness, caring and responsibility with the blessing of his widowed wife, Aunty Barb who said “He wanted people to use the word widely. It’s a beautiful word to use and apply”.
Our Kanyini’s goal of giving those who are the most vulnerable and sometimes fragile, a safe space to transition to life outside of gaol is a timely one, with the 2017 Closing the Gap report highlighting the over-representation of indigenous people in the criminal justice system.

4. Deadly Espresso on Walkabout
Reference No: CP010DE
We are repurposing the bus and currently developing a crowdfunding campaign. Thanks to Let’s Act and Bendigo Bank for your support. Deadly Espresso Walkabout will be a mobile cafe for festivals, events and inlocation functions.
