With Common Ground's support we were able to capture five First Law stories for our community. We recorded across 250 kilometers of remote Country, amongst pandanas and boab trees, filming under the moonlight of Giridin. These stories were brought into modernity, and will forever be held.
I am blessed to [have] spent the past several days with the Common Ground team and Creators Circle. I've never believed in myself as much as I did when encouraged by this team of amazing First Nations People. I am a storyteller. This has always been my calling.
Thank you for such a great initiative. Was very useful in giving our students an authentic connection, especially during Covid-19 restrictions when we were unable to invite local community members into the school to share culture.
