School incursions with Indigicate are a great way to begin your school’s cultural journey. Through discussions with your teachers, we gain an understanding of the content covered in class, enabling us to tailor our incursions to meet your educational needs. Our incursions can range from an introduction lesson, to content that will challenge students at the end of topic.
Often, school teachers feel overwhelmed or underprepared when teaching students about Indigenous culture and history. By working with Indigicate, you can meet your curriculum needs, and support Reconciliation by engaging an Indigenous business.
Our rates for incursions / excursions start from $750.00 per day.
Indigicate has worked with many schools’ incursions and excursions covering a wide range of topics. Please contact us to begin a discussion about your vision for an Indigicate incursion at your school.
Please note that NAIDOC Week (7th - 14th July 2019) is a very busy time for Indigicate, and our time gets booked out quickly.
If you are considering having an Indigicate educator join you as part of your NAIDOC Week celebration, please contact us in advance to ensure you don’t miss out!

"I had the privilege of watching Shawn Andrews, a young, proud Aboriginal man host a yarning circle with 30 non – indigenous people. The power and knowledge he bought really touched the heart and opened the minds of all that were present. If education is the key then Indigicate have the key to unlock every door to educating mainstream Australia and in an open and very empowering way."
"Since my first meeting with Shawn in 2014 I have come to know Shawn as a highly motivated, highly energised Indigenous man. His vision of promoting his people, and his determination to provide new opportunities for younger members of Indigenous communities, have been highly influential. He has also worked very effectively to bring genuine understandings of Indigenous culture to non Indigenous youth. Not only has he achieved this through the design and implementation of curriculum, but on-country experiences, and camping encounters within the natural environment. Shawn Andrews certainly has translated his passion to positively influence both Indigenous and non Indigenous youngsters".
"The Indigicate session was a real eye opener to things I've never thought about, considered, seen or heard of. It was a great discussion of our history as Australians as well as the 'other perspective' that we rarely hear from. Things were learnt, history was exposed, eyes were opened and change is coming."
