About: Weave Youth & Community Services stands on the land of the Gadigal and Bidjigal people. Over our 44 year history, numerous Aboriginal community members, clients, staff and Board Members have guided our work as an organisation and taught us how to walk alongside them. We honour the resilience and strength of First Nations people and recognise their ongoing fight for self-determination.'Always Was, Always Will Be' is a short film produced by Weave in partnership with other local grass roots services Tribal Warrior and Redfern Aboriginal Medical Service. 

This short film has been produced alongside Weave's Aboriginal staff, as part of Weave’s commitment to working in culturally safe and responsive ways. The film was created to acknowledge Aboriginal people as the Traditional owners of the land we work on and their ongoing connection to land and place. 

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers please be advised this film may contain footage of people who have passed away.

Always Was, Always Will Be was led by Weave's Aboriginal Staff.
