Indigenous Literacy Foundation, October to November 2017

Ann H & Ann J were invited to take part in an ILF (Indigenous Literacy Foundation) program for indigenous students at Nhulunbuy Primary School in Gove -Wednesday October 25 to Wednesday November 1.

The project was planned to introduce the students to a variety of art materials to make pictures.This visual storytelling  leads to language work - first in their local Yolnu language and then in English. The result will be a book, published by the ILF, which will then be available to the  indigenous community of Nhulanbuy and surrounding areas and for general release.
