Giiyong Festival 2018, at Jigamy
Twofold Aboriginal Corporation (TAC) became incorporated in 1979, and was created as a not for profit organisation to enhance the living conditions of the Aboriginal people of the Twofold Bay region.
Possession of Jigamy Farm was granted in the early 80’s by the Aboriginal Development Commission to assist with the creation of training and employment opportunities for the local Aboriginal Community.
The property was initially developed into a strawberry farm enterprise. A manager’s house was later constructed along with oyster processing sheds.
The Multi-purpose building was constructed, using local Aboriginal building trainees, to provide a home for the Women’s Group who needed a secure meeting place. Art & craft, Activities for Elders, educational programs such as TAFE outreach, Cooking & Hospitality Courses and a Day care Centre for Aboriginal children were made available to the local community. This building now houses the TAC office where all of its current activities are based.
Various training and employment programs have been run for many years at the farm. TAC aims to continue to enhance Jigamy Farm and maximise its use for the benefit the local Aboriginal Community.
To fulfil our mission, TAC undertakes a number of activities:
