What is the Newman Futures Project?

What is the Newman Futures project?

Newman Futures was launched in 2019 to build a diverse and sustainable economy that is inclusive to all. 

A new economic era has emerged in the Pilbara with the adoption of new technology  changing production patterns, business models and the nature of work. These changes hold great promise if industry, government, stakeholders and the community build a common vision for inclusive and sustainable growth.

We know that a strong and connected community is essential to drive economic growth and diversity. A community where everyone feels included, valued and walks together with mutual respect is one that has the power to create transformational change in social and economic development

The strength of Newman Futures lies in common agreements and  the commitment of stakeholders to work together to embrace opportunities. Together, we identified and developed four key strategies that will form the foundations to build a strong, cohesive and sustainable Newman for future generations.

A landmark meeting between Nyiyaparli and Martu elders and other leaders has mapped out a future in East Newman to uphold Aboriginal culture and traditions. Nyiyaparli and Martu elders confirmed that the goal of improvements in East Newman needs to support families to remain together through all stages of life with culture strong. To achieve this improvements and access to housing, parks and facilities, including a corner store is required. This meeting follows the on-going engagement and co-design with Nyiyaparli, Martu and other stakeholders on East Newman over the past few years. If you'd like to be involved in future planning for East Newman or would like more information please contact info@newmanfutures.com.au ... See MoreSee Less

This is Our Dream. The Ngaa Ngayunkurnu Kapukurri Cultural Compact was formed in 2020, with Nyiyaparli traditional owners and Martu custodians coming together to form a mutual agreement to lead the community of Newman forward, on a pathway of mutual respect and understanding. As the nation looks toward to embedding an Indigenous Voice to Parliament in Australia’s constitution, the Cultural Compact plays a similar role at a local level, empowering the Aboriginal community to dream of a better future, laying down new foundations and planning for a new tomorrow. The Cultural Compact invites local organisations and businesses to be part of that dream, to commit to embracing new ideas and ways of walking together for the betterment of the whole community. Come, walk with us. https://culturalcompact.com.au/ Karlka Nyiyaparli Aboriginal CorporationThank you to Bradley Hall for kindly allowing us to use his original song, North West, in this video. ...

We had the best time in the July school holidays with lots of different activities and things to do down at Train Park! It was so much fun and we can’t wait for the next one, which we want to make even better, but we need your help. We would love for you to share your thoughts and feedback, particularly what worked well and what we could do differently next time.
