The program, devised by Robyn Heckenberg from the School of Applied Media and Social Sciences, Gippsland, and hosted by Gippsland Centre for Art and Design, won a 2008 Wurreker Award from the Victorian Aboriginal Advancement League for best University program. The Wurreker Awards acknowledge strategies that support Koorie learners and encourage community development.
