    The Murray Bridge 'Mixin' It Up Youth Project' Shared Responsibility Agreement (SRA) is an agreement between the Australian Government, the South Australian Government and the Murray Bridge Indigenous Community to provide additional funding to the Lower Murray Nungas' Club to purchase musical equipment and conduct music workshops for the youth of Murray Bridge for eight weeks. Shared Responsibility Agreements are agreements between governments and Indigenous communities to provide discretionary funding in return for community obligations.
