COMMUNITY BBQ’S Pace Community BBQ’s are held on a Friday after school at the end of each month. These gatherings are attended by community, school principals, teachers, employment agencies and surrounding community members.

Mentors are also invited along to speak and share information as well as Indigenous workers from different organisations in Central Queensland.
CULTURAL WORKSHOPS The PACE Program runs cultural workshops within the schools and other locations in Biloela. Traditional Owners, Elders and Indigenous workers are invited to share their knowledge with the community. The workshops have consisted of Didgeridoo making and playing Boomerang throwing Traditional games Aboriginal Art Dance Storytelling
COMMUNITY MURAL A two day workshop involved the painting of a Community Mural, by artist James Waterton a descendant of the Gangulu people who are the Traditional Owners of the Biloela Area. The ‘white cockatoo’ was placed in the middle of the mural, with the word Gangulu at the top and Biloela Community at the bottom. Everyone who attended the workshops were asked to paint their hand and place it onto the canvas as a sign of unity. The community, Anglicare staff, Traditional Owners, Elders, school staff and other organisations were invited to see James Waterton unveiling the Mural at the Anglicare office at Biloela, where it hangs in the Reception area for all to see.

BLACK WOMEN STRONG CONFERENCE YARRABAH In June 2012 the Biloela PACE Co-ordinator travelled with eight women from Biloela to the community of Yarrabah to attend the Black Women Strong Conference. The women who accompanied me to the conference gained valuable information, we returned to Biloela with the following knowledge: Cultural awareness Being empowered and positive as a women in today’s society Interacting/ networking with women from other communities On returning from the conference, the group held a meeting to discuss the Conference and what other outcomes we may have, it was then decided to hold our own Women’s Conference in Biloela. We felt that our community would benefit by sharing our experience and knowledge with the Indigenous women in Biloela and surrounding areas.
The Biloela Indigenous Advisory Group and the PaCE commitee invited the talented Naurita Briscoe, originally from Mossman/Daintree area, whom was at that time one of our mum’s in the community to come and workshop with our girls on designing and making burnie beans so these could be handed to our guests at the Indigenous Women Powering on Conference as gifts
JINA NADU JANIBA (THIS IS OUR LAND) Jina Nadu Janiba was written by Nautrita Brisco in her language Kuku Yalanji, with the permission from elders she was enabled to translate the song into the Gangulu language with the help from Traditional Owner Uncle Philip Toby. Over 4 weeks Naurita taught our young women this song along with vocal training and stage presence so they were able to perform this at our Indigenous Women Powering On conference.
The following strong, inspirational indigenous women were our guest speakers: Dr Kay Price – Education Consultant and Curriculum Writer Gail Mabo – Artist, Performer, Choreographer, Cultural Consultant and Speaker Dale Chapman – Chef and owner Operator Coolamon Food Creations Naurita Briscoe – Artist & Musician Dorothy Williams – Elder and Writer Sophie Yasso – Regional Community Education Counsellor
