Making Connections: Ancient Stories - New Audiences

The Dreaming Series is a nationally significant collection of works, which transformed Australian traditional knowledge and culture, through digital media presentation, into a new mode of sharing, which crosses the generational divide and connects to our younger generations; those with a natural affiliation to the moving image.

The group of works that students handled will be on show.
