Our Ganalili Heroes

Project Name: Our Ganalili Heroes

Funding Recipient: Juluwarlu Group Aboriginal Corporation

Activity: Our Ganalili Heroes is a youth digital media project that will give 12 young people digital media skills and the confidence and courage that comes from recognising their commitment to contribute their voices to sustaining the deep cultural and community-held knowledge of Yindjibarndi – and opportunities to reflect, imagine and make and share their own creatively expressive important stories and meanings with wider Australian audiences. This is an important chance to step-up young people to grab hold of their own futures.

July 2021 Update: There has been a six-month set-back, but twelve Writing and Development Workshop Sessions were held from January to June; three online learning workshops were held in April and June; students participated in two Elders-led Filmmaker & Cultural Learning on country field trips and two four-day camping journeys in March and April, and five scripts have been developed.
