CULTURAL DESIGN PRINCIPLES
Balarinji has trail-blazed Aboriginal design in Australia for more than 35 years. We deliver exceptional outcomes for strategic design projects and placemaking by activating the beauty and spirituality of a site’s Aboriginal narrative.
Our design work is grounded in place-based and community-specific Aboriginal Cultural Design Principles, a process which drives our development of frameworks and strategies.
Balarinji’s groundbreaking and proven methodology framework delivers design that deepens sense of place and understanding of the Indigenous context. Our work is enriching Australian public places and major projects by activating the local Aboriginal narrative.
Our methodologies go beyond mitigation and compliance and provide projects with the means to greatly enrich their artistic and interpretative character. This results in greater integrity and authenticity through supported facilitation of Aboriginal stakeholders to go beyond sharing their stories and artwork, to genuinely co-designing concepts for interpretation.
