Lake Mungo Interactive App and Education Package

Project Name: Lake Mungo Interactive App and Education Package

Funding Recipient: Sharing Stories Foundation

Activity: to increase access for culturally significant Indigenous material in schools through an innovative app. The Sharing Stories Foundation has developed culturally significant media with the Three Traditional Tribal Groups Advisory Council in Lake Mungo, and with this grant, will develop an interactive app and education package that guides users across landscapes and knowledge.

Outcome: This funding started a massive movement for the Three Traditional tribal Groups of Mungo. In 2017, The Aboriginal Advisory Group, Willandra Lakes Region World Heritage Area and SharingStories all sat together as a group to create a 3-5 year impact goals for the community, and as of the launch in November 2021, the goals were completed. The Screenrights Cultural Fund was the first to support the vision of the community and thanks to this, an additional $550,000 of in-kind and other funding was able to be leveraged.
