Country Lines Archive

Jon and I just attended a presentation by John Bradley about his team's work in recreating Indigenous song lines and stories into 3D animations, as an effort to encourage the retention, sharing and inheritance of language and culture.
Aim:To Assist Indigenous Australian communities in the animation of stories that combine their history, knowledge, poetry, songs, performance and language to provide material for Elders and younger generations to sit together and share knowledge

You can view the animations at the Monash Country Lines Archive (MCLA)
