The Tribal Warrior Association was established to help vitalise Aboriginal culture and empower disadvantaged indigenous and non-indigenous people. They produce specialised programs which teach skills for individuals to become self-sufficient and lead to employment opportunities. They generously share their office space at 107 with the organisation Driving Change.
The Bower works to reduce ‘waste’ going to landfill, assist low income earners and educate and inspire Sydneysiders to live, work and play the sustainable way. It does this through a variety of ways, holding workshops, repair services and a collection and rehoming service. They run the workshop space at the rear of the building.
