We have just returned from our first field trip of the year.
Program Coordinator Cindy Manfong and Indigenous author and illustrator Gregg Dreise visited Melville Island in the Northern Territory to create a second book from the school that wrote our 2015 publishing favourit, ‘No Way Yirrikipayi'.
Nina Black, a local elder, joined us on the project with the group to support the use of Tiwi language – it is so important to us that the language used and how it’s used is guided by the community.
We are so thrilled with how the workshop went and can’t wait to show you the results when it is complete!
