Knowledge Experiences


Combining STEAM knowhow with Aboriginal culture to deliver powerful learning to students and corporate groups.

DKA con­nects peo­ple and knowl­edges. We under­stand the impor­tance of the knowl­edge that exists in remote and region­al Aus­tralia and that we have a role in col­lect­ing, curat­ing and shar­ing that knowl­edge. We live and work across lan­guages and cul­tures and use that expe­ri­ence as the foun­da­tion of our work. Our knowl­edge expe­ri­ences are a way for us to share our under­stand­ings and cre­ate oppor­tu­ni­ties for connections. 

The desert knowl­edge net­work is made up of ancient and endur­ing Abo­rig­i­nal knowl­edges along­side con­tem­po­rary and emerg­ing research, sci­ence and tech­nol­o­gy. Through inter­twin­ing old and new knowl­edges, both are enriched and strength­ened. DKA nav­i­gates this net­work to facil­i­tate cus­tom edu­ca­tion­al and cul­tur­al knowl­edge expe­ri­ences for all kinds of groups, from cor­po­rate groups to school students. 

DKA’s knowl­edge expe­ri­ences can offer valu­able oppor­tu­ni­ties to

  • Engage with Arrernte cul­ture and deep­en under­stand­ings of Abo­rig­i­nal knowledge
  • Vis­it the world-renowned DKA Solar Cen­tre and learn about renew­able energy
  • Meet lead­ing sci­en­tists, engi­neers and edu­ca­tors from our Precinct part­ners Batch­e­lor Insti­tute for Indige­nous Ter­tiary Edu­ca­tion, Cen­tre for Appro­pri­ate Tech­nol­o­gy, Ekisti­ca and Geo­science Australia
  • Expe­ri­ence the beau­ty of the desert land­scape and the inspi­ra­tion that comes from learn­ing on country
