The Bangerang people of the Murray Goulburn region have collaborated with SharingStories since 2015. Projects have been developed together to support community goals, the development of language resources and the cultural practices of oral storytelling. In 2015-2016, SharingStories facilitated sharing and learning through a digital storytelling program between Elders from three family groups of the region and St Georges Road Primary School students. Students produced wonderful creative interpretations of the knowledge shared. With programs spanning over many years, the community are sharing an array of media outcomes with the public in the future.

Over the next two years, the Bangerang Community are:

  • sharing culture and stories through the Koorie Culture Map an interactive map experience
  • releasing a multi-touch book of the Dunggula: The Murray River a creation story
  • releasing an animation of the Dunggula: The Murray River a creation story
  • producing educational resources to support the teaching of First Nations perspectives
  • developing additional language resources
