This initiative now evolves into a bimonthly seminar series, as a way of enabling Restorative Practitioners to share their personal stories and challenges in their specific streams of RP.

The schedule for 2022 and into 2023 is online. A page has been created to convey information about the sessions and to allow you to express interest in receiving an invitation. The page is on our associated site, Australian Restorative Mapping.

Australian Restorative Mapping

The NED Foundation has long had a strong commitment to an explicit restorative culture in both the way it works as an organisation and also how it relates to those with whom it works.
NED seeks to support and nurture restorative practice, and to this end, has established a restorative practice mapping site (link is external).
The site provides a platform for both individuals and organisations to represent their restorative engagement, and also to share their stories.
The information on the mapping site is provided by the individual or organisation, and their presence on the site is not an endorsement by the NED Foundation.
Should you wish to explore the possibility of yourself or your organisation having a presence on the mapping site, please contact Ian De Landelles, by using our contact form

NED Foundation Supported Projects

NED Foundation is looking for people whose values and goals align with ours. If you too have been asking ‘what does the world need now?’ and have come up with an idea for a project that will contribute to the evolution of transformational change, we would love to hear about it.

Supported Projects - A Sample of 3

 Mossman Kubirri Manjal Balkana

In 2018 NED supported the First Peoples First Cultural Foundation (based in Mossman) to develop an e-book to support the learning of Kuku Yalanji Language. Balkan Bakal Ku Ku Kubirrinka Yala Manjalaka tells the story of Kubirri and The Mountain.

The project is inclusive of original artworks; oral storytelling, songs, dance and film combined within a multi touch bi-lingual E-book.

Water Drilling at Cooya Beach

The Kuku Yalanji people of Far North Queensland have developed an ambitious plan to regenerate their language and culture and preserve both for future generations. As they told us language comes from Country and all the songs, dances, artworks, and ways in which people live are connected. They developed an e-book to support language learning and have had remarkable success in persuading the local school to teach language to all the children. As part of this project, they approached NED to support their Cooya Beach project.

Richard Swain, Ngarrindjeri Elder Uncle Moogy Sumner and Yuin Elder Uncle Max Dulumunmun Harrison at 'Nariong"

In 2020 NED supported Amanda King in engaging an Impact Manager to assist in promoting her film, Where the Water Starts, which launched in 2021.

Amanda worked closely with Yuin Elder, Uncle Max Dulumunmun Harrison and Richard Swain, the Indigenous Ambassador, who holds an honorary role for the Invasive Species Council, to understand the issues relating to brumbies in Kosciuszko National Park. Both the environmental impacts and the way in which the issue affects the Aboriginal Community and their relationship with this site of significant spiritual significance have been considered The appeal they make is for a limit to be placed on brumbies in the park rather than to remove their presence entirely. The film supports the ongoing work of Richard Swain who continues to campaign.
