C-A-C has been working with artists Merindah Funnell (Wiradjuri), Ethan Bell (Ngunnawal) and Emily Flannery (Wiradjuri) with support from Aunty Susan Murphy, Aunty Christine Carriage and Aunty Kay Bussell.
Merindah, Ethan and Emily each developed written workshops informed by their professional practices in illustration, poetry and dance, while drawing inspiration from conversations with local Elders. The programs use Project Based Learning to integrate creative arts and other key learning areas, as well as cross-curriculum priority Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures.
The three specially developed packs are available to partnering local primary schools, provided with art materials and reference books for full year groups to learn from contemporary artists as part of regular studies at school or home, facilitated by classroom teachers.
Please contact us if your school is interested in getting involved.
